About Mobile, AL From the Web…
“Rich in history, Mobile was founded by French explorer Jean Baptiste LeMoyne of Bienville in 1702. French, English, Spanish and Native American influences have blended to create a unique culture influencing everything from our celebration of Mardi Gras to the gumbo we eat to the architecture of our homes. Mobile is a picturesque city located at the mouth of the Mobile River and the edge of Mobile Bay, leading to the Gulf of Mexico. Nearly 591,000 residents live in the metropolitan area that covers 2,828 square miles. As one of the oldest cities in the United States, our city combines Southern tradition, beauty and charm with all the elements of a fast-growing, successful community.”—Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce
Mobile is the largest metropolitan area along the Gulf of Mexico between New Orleans, La., and Tampa, Fla., and the 119th largest MSA in the nation. Mobile’s market area is composed of seven counties in Alabama, three counties in Florida and one county in Mississippi, combining more than 1.3 million residents in the 11-county area.
Having been the city that brought Mardi Gras to the United States, Mobile knows how to throw a party. In the Spring is the Festival of Flowers and the Mobile Jazz Fest. The Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo and Fourth of July Celebration takes place in the Summertime. In the Fall, there’s the Greek Fest and Bay Fest, which is a world class festival of music with over 100 acts. The Wintertime means it’s chili time with the Chili Cook-off and then it all wraps up with Mardi Gras at the end of Winter/beginning of Spring.
