In a two-part repositioning effort, The Mobile Bay Convention & Visitors Bureau (MBCVB)- the official tourism and convention marketing organization for the City, County and the Mobile area hospitality industry – announces today a name change and the launch of a new brand.
We are now doing business as:
Mobile has a spirited, soulful sense of hospitality and BORN TO CELEBRATE is a vow that Mobile can truthfully make and one that offers a strong appeal to travelers’ desire to have fun while on vacation. BORN TO CELEBRATE promises emotional well-being: it promises a state of joy, exuberance and vitality. Everything that is #SoMobile.
Because the promise of celebration is one that is true and authentic to the Mobile experience — we are after all, the birthplace of Mardi Gras – BORN TO CELEBRATE, echoes the approach Mobilians take to life and hospitality. The color burst visually represents an exuberant, celebratory feeling and while it can mean different things to different people, there’s no question that something joyful is occurring in Mobile.
Stay tuned for more details.
We just started celebrating and we want you to join us!

Dr. Glenn Sebastian Nature Trails
For over 30 years, nature fanatics have flocked to the University of South Alabama campus to enjoy the beautiful sites along the Glenn Sebastian Nature Trails. These trails offer hikers and bikers a convenient way to experience the outdoors. Located in the heart of Mobile, these woods are a pocket of wildlife in our busy bustling city. The trail offers several different winding and marked paths all ranging around one to three miles in distance!

The Eastern Shore Trail
Stretching over 32 miles across the Mobile Bay, the Eastern Shore trail crosses paths with some of the best highlights in the area. The trail begins at the USS ALABAMA, past the Five Rivers Delta Resource Center and then takes you as far as the Eastern Shore. Whether hiking or biking, visitors can indulge in Mobile’s rich history and get a taste of the city’s surroundings.

Mobile-Tensaw Delta Paddle Trail
From a kayak or canoe, one can enjoy the breeze from the water and view some of the gorgeous backdrops this region has to offer without the distraction of loud motors and blaring radios. Leave the compass at home, because Mobile County ornamented the trail with clear signage to make your trip even better. Mobile’s Delta Safaris offers guided tours and rentals to visitors.
