Interesting
Second-largest city in Alabama, this gracious port combines the genteel atmosphere of the antebellum era with the bustle and verve of a contemporary southern metropolis. Mobile's prime location at the head of Mobile Bay made the city a major Confederate port during the Civil War, one of the last to fall to Union control. The city today prides itself on its French heritage, claiming the first Mardi Gras celebration in the US.
