Beautiful flower filled streets. Lovely shops and highly recommend the following restaurants: Pannini Pete's, Sunset Pointe, Blue Marlin and Fish River Grill. Beginets and wonderful seafood. Great pier with beautiful sunsets. Don't miss the flower clock.

Great place to take a walk around a small town. Visit locally owned shops, ice cream parlor, bars, coffee shops, and restaurants. There is plenty of nearby parking and something for everyone to enjoy.

This avenue is a piece of history combined with cute boutiques. It is perfect for a romantic stroll or an afternoon of window shopping. The history of Fairhope should be remembered here. It is unique and successful.

We drove into town about noon on Saturday for the annual Arts and Crafts festival. No parking signs lined the streets, so we opted to park at the elementary school about 0.4 miles away and walk. Many others were doing the same. We have been...More
