Mobile is a port city on Alabama’s Gulf Coast. It has seen many flags flying over its bay during its culturally rich history, from France to Britain and then to Spain. A melting pot of people, cultures, traditions and cuisine, Mobile is home to several art museums, a professional ballet company and a symphony orchestra. Surprisingly, Mobile is also accredited with having the oldest organized Mardi Gras celebration in the United States.
