All Hail Dad!

We have all heard the saying, “The fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” While that is definitely true, we think it should be modified a bit.  We think it should be, “The fastest way to a man’s heart is with a big ole’ juicy steak!” Now, we’re talking, right?

With Father’s Day right around the corner, now is the perfect time to make that dinner reservation to treat Dad to a deliciously deserving meal. Plus, you want to be child of the year, right? If you’re an only child, you’re always child of the year so extra brownie points never hurt!

We’ve taken the liberty to make planning much easier by giving you some mouth-watering options to choose from!

Mobilians For The Win

We make no secrets about how awesome Mobilians are.  There is just something really special about citizens who love their community and celebrate it every chance they get.

Case in point: Visit Mobile’s newest initiative – the I Am Mobile! Tourism Ambassador Program. Through the program, attendees will become certified ambassadors for the city of Mobile and be an integral part of improving the visitor experience.   We launched the program on June 7 and within three and a half hours, we had to put the message you see below on our website because it was sold out. SOLD OUT.

Attendees will take a six-week course learning about all things Mobile and will then be ready to put their certification to the test. They’ll be leading tours, arming our Carnival Cruise passengers with activities to do in Mobile and talking to visitors who are attending local conventions. And, get this– they are volunteering to do it!

Our hats are off to you, Mobilians. We thank you for joining us to ensure our visitors have the best experiences. We celebrate you for always celebrating Mobile!

Dauphins is a Delight!

Bob Baumhower opened his newest restaurant in Downtown Mobile a couple of months ago and we are still talking about it.

The views.  We can’t get over the views.  They are extraordinary. We’re talking about perfect views of Downtown Mobile from the 34th floor of the RSA Trustmark Building.

See what we mean?
