Alabama’s Coastal Connection

Listening to the sound of waves gently lapping against the pristine, white sand, you’ll quickly discover what has drawn so many to the coast of Mobile Bay. As you journey along this breathtaking route that spans 131 miles from Grand Bay to Spanish Fort, you will traverse picturesque landscapes and charming byway communities steeped in tradition. Allow the expansive vistas of the Gulf to instill a sense of peace and tranquility in your mind. As the sweet coastal breezes caress your sun-drenched skin, give over to complete relaxation and contentment. Soon, the Byway will begin to meander its way through small coastal towns, each with its own unique character and welcoming atmosphere. Connect with the residents, return the warm smiles of passersby, note the vibrant colors of the rambling beach houses, and take in the mouthwatering aroma of fresh seafood. As you travel, you’ll encounter stories of the past at attractions, landmarks, and historic sites such as the Oakleigh House Museum and Fort Morgan. Natural wonders such as Gulf State Park and Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge afford a rare chance to connect more intimately with the nature that surrounds you.
