Full Description

111 Places In Mobile That You Must Not Miss is the ultimate insider’s guide to Mobile. It takes you on many fun adventures in the scenic port city. Although it is known for its Mardi Gras festivities, few realise that Mobile is the birthplace of Mardi Gras in the United States. In fact, the city was settled over a century before Alabama became a state, giving a longer recorded history than the state itself.

Delve into pure joy as you learn what exactly was the deal behind the infamous Crichton leprechaun that took the world by storm early this century. Can you recognise the artists who used oyster-shaped art to help Mobile thrive? Which connection did the city have to the Manson family? You may get a little creeped out as you learn about the arrest of a Manson family member in Mobile and visit artifacts on display in the police precinct.
