Folks living along Alabama’s Coastal Connection have always made their living from the land and the sea. Southern Mobile and Baldwin Counties have an agricultural heritage as rich as the soil. And along the water’s edge, where the land was too sandy to farm, recreational areas grew.
The Civil War is just one chapter in the volumes of history along Alabama’s Coastal Connection. You can spend days touring our community museums, churches or cemeteries. Tour Dauphin Island, the cradle of the Louisiana Territory, home to Cadillac Square and Shell Mound Park, each rich with history and legend.
There are many ways to enjoy Alabama’s Coastal Connection, but none offers more scenic views than this “Connecting with Nature” itinerary.
