May 31st, 2019 by Corey A. Edwards

Mobile Airboat ToursMobile Airboat Tours will get you out onto the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta the way no other tour can. Airboats are fast, fun, and exciting. Plus they can maneuver more quietly and in shallower waters than most boats for even better, up-close wildlife experiences!

The Mobile-Tensaw River Delta is a natural gem and one of the most unique watersheds in the world. Here, five fresh water rivers – the Mobile, Spanish, Tensaw, Apalachee, and Blakeley – come together as they flow into the salt waters of Mobile Bay.

This collision of fresh and salt water creates an unusual environment that supports a vast network of plants and animals. Many of the plants and animals found here are unique to this environment. In fact, the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta is home to hundreds of acres of threatened and endangered species.

People travel from around the world to experience and explore the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta. Mobile airboat tours are one of the most popular ways to see this very special region. Why are they so popular? It’s the flexibility.

An airboat can provide a high speed thrill ride, a serene wildlife safari, and all stages in between. Airboats are light, fast, and can slip quietly through shallow waters that other powerboats find impassable. This allows them the ability to provide those up-close, wildlife encounters we all dream of better than most other tours.

Tour the Past at Oakleigh Historic Complex

May 17th, 2019 by Corey A. Edwards

Oakleigh Historic ComplexStep back in time at Oakleigh Historic Complex, home to Mobile’s oldest house museum, a Union barracks, the Cox-Deasy Cottage, and the Minnie Mitchell Archives.

Oakleigh House, constructed in 1833 by James W. Roper, was one of the first major residences to be built outside of the Mobile city limits. The mansion is one of the country’s rarest examples of Greek revival architecture and one of Alabama’s largest T-shaped homes. Oakleigh’s unique shape encourages a cooling cross-ventilation against the region’s notorious humidity.

The Oakleigh House and grounds remained in private hands until 1955, when the estate was purchased by the city of Mobile. The property had been kept in good working shape over the years. Consequently, the job of restoring it to its historic glory was not as difficult as it could have been and the results are stunning.

There’s an awful lot of history in Mobile, AL. Forts, gardens, parks, monuments and, historic houses tell the tale of the city and region.

Of them all, the Condé-Charlotte House Museum is billed as “the gateway to Mobile’s history,” and with good reason. The building, constructed in 1822 between the southern bastions of Fort Condé, was Mobile’s first courthouse and city jail.

The building, still sometimes referred to as The Kirkbride House, was purchased in 1849 by Jonathan Kirkbride. Kirkbride added what is now known as the main house, converting the courthouse and jail section into a kitchen. Evidence of the old jail cells, with their two-foot thick brick floor, can still be seen in the kitchen wing.

The Historic Mobile Preservation Society purchased the site in 1940 for restoration. Their hard work provided the historic house museum we see today, highlighting Mobile’s history under five flags: French, English, Spanish, Confederate and American.
