Over the past few years, CondoInvestment has witnessed a tremendous amount of growth and has become one of the leading real estate websites in Coastal Alabama. We have a number of projects planned this year, but one of the most exciting is that we are expanding our website to include three coastal areas: Mobile, AL and Destin and Panama City, FL. We'll be providing more listings for homes and condos along with plenty of area info for those who are interested in Mobile, AL real estate.
Mobile is one of the oldest cities in Alabama and has played an important role in the state's history. French colonists founded Mobile in 1702 and it became the capital of Basse-Louisiane (this was the name given to the southern half of La Louisiane, which extended from the Gulf Coast and up into the northeastern regions of Canada until the 19th century). Today, Mobile's French roots can be seen in the annual festivals, architectures, and food that the area is most popular for. The city is home to eight districts that are on the National Register of Historic Places and you'll often see tourists and residents walking down tree-lined sidewalks to admire the beautiful porches attached to historic homes or relaxing on a bench in one of the many town squares. Mobile has the twelfth busiest port in the country and people have been traveling here to enjoy Mobile's vibrant cultural, unique historical districts, and famous Gulf Coast seafood.
Mobile was home to America's first Mardis Gras and that tradition continues to this day, with Mobile continuing to host the oldest organized carnival each year since the first decade of the 18th century. When the official Mardis Gras festival is not taking place, Mobile's public squares continue to draw in crowds with live music, art festivals, and more. Cathedral Square is a particularly popular area, known for hosting a farmer's market where you can buy some fresh vegetables and even seafood. Other historic districts include the lush Oakleigh Garden District, De Tonti Square, and Old Dauphin Way. The downtown area is famous for hosting amazing Sunday brunches in a number of local restaurants, locally-owned boutiques and galleries, and restaurants specializing in Southern fare.
Outdoor activities are an important part of Mobile life and it shows in the number of public parks there are all over the city. The biggest and most popular is Langan Park, which is home to the Mobile Museum of Art. This 720-acre park has jogging and biking paths, playgrounds for the kids, a lake, numerous areas for a picnic, and the Mobile Botanical Gardens. Of course, Mobile Bay is a particularly alluring area, especially in the summer when there's a chance that you could witness the area's most unique phenomenon: a jubilee.
