Must-Sees of the Gulf Coast


Alabama Cultural Sites

Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception

Down south – like, way down – the Alabama Gulf Coast is brimming with cultural destinations, from Orange Beach to Saraland.

One of the coast’s top cultural attractions is the USS AL Battleship Memorial Park, set in Mobile. The massive battleship serves as a living history museum for curious Mobile Bay travelers, features tons of WWII history.

Over 150 years old, Mobile’s Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception draws visitors from across the country for its outstanding architecture and intriguing history. Take some time to explore the entire Cathedral Square and Church Street East Historic District.

Also in Mobile, the Crescent Theater is must-go for visiting movie lovers. The Crescent originally opened in 1885, yet it’s still kicking today, showing new releases in its completely refurbished interior.

Get a little scientific by visiting the Gulf Cost Exploreium Science Center in Mobile. The science center is home to a ton of interactive exhibits that will surely enlighten and evoke curiosity; it’s an ideal venture for young ones, too.

If the science is a little too dense for you, embrace the gulf’s artistic culture by touring the Mobile Museum of Art. The museum features a huge collection of southern U.S. pieces, offering more insight into Alabama’s vast artistic culture.

Down in Gulf Shores, the Gulf State Park Fishing Pier allows visitor the opportunity to walk the gulf’s longest pier, catching a close-up view of AL fishermen as they reel in the catch of the day.
