This is a great place to view the sunset and walk along the Mobile Bay area. A walk out on the pier is great. And walk along the beach area.

Very safe pleasant way to spend evening, watching the fisherman, sunset, or the seagulls. Lots of sidewalk to get your exercise..or sit on a nice park bench next to the water and just chill

This is a lovely place to stroll, catch a sunset, and relax. The surrounding water was alive with jumping fish and there's a charming pelican who will steal your bait.
