Fairhope Avenue

The main shopping area in this picturesque resort town.

Reviewed By Dennis J - Boston, Massachusetts

Fairhope Avenue has something for everyone. Men's clothing, women's clothing, restaurants, art galleries, coffee shops, museums and plenty more. We were here for the annual art show held outside with about 200 artists. Great art to buy. Plenty of other shops off the side streets.

This place is pure perfection. The kind of perfection that makes your whole being of body and mind flood in pure joy. The community of Fairhope and the groundkeepers here have made a small slice of heaven on earth. Gah, I can't say enough at how amazing this place is. You must experience this place in person. Take a walk, because you won't regret it.

Fairhope Museum

Reviewed By bhogg49 - Fairhope, Alabama

There is a short film that discusses the history of fairhope. Quite worthwhile to find out more. It is an interesting city. On Tuesdays, they have an afternoon tea, with locally grown tea. The last time I went the topic was early, early Fairhope and involved the different tribes of indians in the area. Even learned how to make an arrow and a simple clay pot. This would be a great place to take out of town guests.

Fairhope Brewing Company

Manufacturing brewery with a tasting room where patrons are welcome to purchase and drink beer. Bring your own food. Children welcome until 6:00. Tours every Saturday at noon with a reservation.

Reviewed By P3902RQwilliamp

Fairhope's Original brewery is nestled in a side street off of the four lane Greeno rd., about a mile from downtown. That said you can walk there or uber if you don't wanna drive, and you might not for the beers are wonderful and innovative. They did a special brew of a beer type popular in Germany 500 years ago for the anniversary of the Protestant Reformation (even though most of the owners are Roman Catholics - talk about ecumenism!). Their other offerings are fun and tasty. No food is served, but you can bring in your own and sometimes caterers will appear for special occasions. Wed. nights they do trivia and its a great place to take in college football with friends!

Will Hughes new market is probably the best place to have lunch in Fairhope right now. Eclectic and delicious menu with great sandwiches, bowls, soups, and sides. As good as any cutting edge lunch spot I've enjoyed in Denver, Cali, or NYC. There will be...MoreGlad to count you as a fan - come try another grain or salad bowl soon... or a meal to go from the market cooler!

A government protected wildlife reserve.

Reviewed By Jay B - Fairhope, Alabama

Weeks Bay is simply awesome! The reserve area adjacent to Fish River offers many free activities including fishing (from the bank or pier), hiking and educational activities. I highly recommend Weeks Bay for folks with interest in our eco-system or with families with young children. A rare find!

ESAC is especially attractive on Fairhope First Fridays, when they host the "art walk" event. Each First Friday, they feature a local artist and their work. A really fun event with wine and snacks to boot! We recently purchased a gorgeous pelican sculpture and met the artist. What a great memory!

Tolstoy Park

Reviewed By Hope C - Yazoo City, Mississippi

First of all, I loved the book and when I found out the actual circular building he built was still in existence and somewhat a museum, but in the oddest place, I just had to go and see for myself. I was fascinated by the structure and the story that actually happened to start the wheels rolling for its existence. I am thankful it is preserved and that it is open for public viewing.

Olde South Antique Mall

Reviewed By Cheri R

I admit that I'm a little snob when it comes to shopping, and with that said I always have the best experience when I step into this shop! From the greeting at the door to getting lost in the many wonderful antiques they have, to check out, and finally to the shop owner wishing me a great day, I absolutely love this place!! I highly recommend to others to check this place out!
