Having flown six different flags, this historic seaport is a diverse community that has become a popular vacation spot for those wanting to experience a little multi-culture. More than 300 years old, Mobile's heritage reflects an array of French, Spanish, British and Creole, as well as African and Southern antebellum cultural influences. Visitors will also experience a delightful mix of beautiful beaches and exciting leisure activities that attract more than 1.5 million people each year.
