what a quaint town, from tree lined streets to all the beautiful flowers. Not to mention the fabulous shops and all sorts of great dining options. Be sure to stay at the Hampton Inn right in downtown or the Mariott Resort a short drive away... Definitly don't miss this wonderful town!

This is like traveling to a wonderful Mayberry place with modern shopping! Very picturesque and pedestrian friendly. Only one word of warning - do not go on a Sunday. Half the street is closed. We were very disappointed.

My wife and I moved here two years ago, based on a recommendation from a magazine called, 'Where to Retire'. Part of me wants to say, "Don't move here." I'd rather save the wonder for myself.

We had the best time walking down the streets of Fairhope. I loved looking at all the buildings that have a European flavor. The shops were varied. There are clothing stores, art museums, antique shops, toy store, restaurants. The architecture of the buildings is what drew me to this town.

There is plenty to do in Fairhope and the people are so very friendly. I'm not sure if the lights are kept on all year long. They make for a very pretty sight.

Great shopping and great food! A small town with all the perks! Known for it's fabulous flowers that line the streets, Fairhope is a must on your bucket list! Another Broken Egg for breakfast, R Bistro for dinner, Fairhope pier or Sunset Pointe for fabulous sunsets, drinks and dinner. The Marriott Grand Hotel in Point Clear for a fabulous place... More

We live in Fairhope. We go down Fairhope Ave all the time. Runs all the way to the pier which is a lovely place to walk. The road is a nice drive.

This city is just too cute to miss! The avenue during the holidays just shine with the Christmas lights, people here are very nice and you get a sense of calmness.
