Out of all the beautiful cities and towns Alabama has to offer, Fairhope is among the most highly rated. This city is the most idyllic community southern Alabama has to offer in terms of the community as well as available real estate. It is a very serene and peaceful community along Highway 98 that is set aside from the fast paced cities of Mobile and Daphne. This makes it a perfect spot to live if city life is not what you are looking for, and if you desire a more relaxing, quiet, atmosphere. While it is set aside from Daphne and Mobile it is only a couple of minutes commute from both, perfect for people who work in either city but do not prefer to live in said city. The beauty of this community is hard to capture in mere words. I like to think of it as a secluded town with great architecture that brings you back to a romantic time where cottage styled buildings were extremely common. It contains several community boutiques, antiques shops, custom art galleries, and surf shops as well a certain romantic down-by-the-bay charm. The downtown area is perfect for the casual nightlife enthusiast or simply those who would enjoy an afternoon stroll through a downtown district with the feel of a small cottage town from long ago. In fact, Downtown Fairhope has been nominated countless times as one of the best hidden gyms in the entire United States of America. Downtown Fairhope is much more laid back and less crowded than neighboring Downtown Mobile, giving it a certain feeling of serenity and safety that most nightlife venues simply do not possess. Many people come to vacation here every year, and it is no surprise why. Alongside its beauty and peacefulness it is located directly on the bay, and is perfected for boat owning homeowners, due to its’ bayside location as well as its’ close proximity to Gulf Shores, Dauphin Island, and the Mobile Delta. This city offers a wide variety of real estate. New homes are being constructed constantly, and vacation homes are more than prevalent due to the city’s status as a nice vacation spot. Due to the amount of high income residents, custom homes are very common. Since there is plenty of room for expansion, new homes can be built constantly to the future owner’s specs. Cottage styled homes are very common here, and help give the city its’s romantic appeal. As I said, this city has a large number of higher income citizens living within city limits. Due to this there are also a large number of Estate homes and Luxury homes, and plenty of luxury neighborhoods to choose from and search for houses in. Come to Fairhope and see why it is so highly rated as one of the most idyllic communities in all of Alabama.
