Dauphin Street is so beautiful!!! The store fronts and restaurants are very unique within the City of Mobile. The fabulous architected facades of the buildings are just waiting for tourists and locals to enjoy!!! Mardi Gras parades travel down Dauphin Street to the huge crowds standing along the historic sidewalk... a "must experience" while in Mobile, Alabama!!!

Take the time to stroll down this street -- there are places to eat or grab a drink, there's a gallery, a park, and a great place to people watch. Stop into A & M Peanut Store, grab a bag of peanuts, and take in the sights!

This is the first time that my boyfriend has ever visited Mobile. I couldn't wait to walk down Dauphin and show him how beautiful this town is.

Some lovely restaurants on this street. On the weekends they often have an Art fair in the park. If you plan to visit, go on a sunny (not a very hot) day.

My wife and I visited Mobile and stayed downtown. We were expecting much more like Savannah, Charleston or New Orleans. We walked Dauphin Street after dark from our hotel and were not comfortable. During the day, we also walked the area and were approached by strangers. This street has so much potential but currently is not worth the visit.

Heard that this place was hot on weekends so I cruised down to check it out. There were quite a few people moving among several bars in the area and overall it was jumping - but on a fairly small scale and overall a hipster/hip hop sort of atmosphere. Seemed like mostly a close-knit local crowd who was there with... More

We stayed at the Renaissance Hotel. Walked to many restaurants and bars. Strong police presence made us feel safe and comfortable.

Neat area; however, the restaurants closed early and there was hardly any place to eat after 8:00. Town seemed to close up.

We are an Australian family doing a two week road trip of the Deep South and only decided to stay in Mobile because it seemed like a good first day drive from Atlanta. However we stayed in the historic district near Dauphin st and couldn't believe the cool vibe of this street with all its cool bars and cafes. The... More
