Discover Coastal Alabama Winter 2019 - Page 15

water is more your thing, you’ll discover water-based adventures that bring you eye-to-eye with giant gators in America’s Amazon, the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta. Maybe you’ll find yourself paddling to- ward an ancient Indian mound accessible only by water or sipping wine on a sunset cruise on Mobile Bay, after all, being on the water is simply a part of life around here. If you’re making a trip to Mobile, plan to eat extremely well while you’re here be- cause the port city also knows a thing or two about delicious cuisine.  Shrimp, blue crabs, oysters and more, are as bountiful as succulent, and they come straight from our backyard, the Gulf of Mexico.  We can’t forget about the cornbread beside Southern fried chicken, collards, cheese grits and other soulful delicacies that really are as good as Momma’s.   Slow- cooked pit barbecue is a prized local fa- vorite and James Beard nominated Chefs are taking innovation to the next level. Pull up a seat and eat with us.  Stretchy pants not required!   So, come, enjoy, engage, have fun! We Mobilians certainly do! DISCOVER COASTAL ALABAMA - WINTER 2019 15
