Mobile, Alabama with Kids

Mobile, Alabama is a beautiful city, rich in history. It is known for Mardi Gras, azaleas, Spanish Moss, and seafood. What may not be as obvious it that Mobile is a great city for families to visit.

If you’re headed to this Gulf Coast city, here are 7 great ideas for things to do with kids during your visit:

 

USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park

At Battleship Memorial park, you get a real look at how the soldiers worked and lived onboard. Not only did we venture out to the top of the battleship, but we also saw the interior rooms and workings inside the ship. We saw where they ate, slept, and worked. It is a great place to see the battleship, submarine, tanks, planes, helicopters, and artillery.

Spot of Tea

Mobile has tons of chain restaurants and fast food places. If you’re looking for something off the beaten path and really delicious, I recommend Spot of Tea. It is located right in the heart of downtown Mobile.

We like to eat here for breakfast or brunch. From their yummy hot cocoa to their omelets and Belgian Waffles, they offer something for everyone! Their Strawberry Tea is wonderful! You can eat in the lovely restaurant, on the side walk café area, or in Cathedral Park.
