This lively capital of Alabama boasts a fascinating history due to its involvement in both US and World history. The American Civil War started here and you can enjoy a guided tour of the First White House of the Confederacy, home to Jefferson Davis and his family.
Almost 100 years later, Alabama was also in the world's spotlight when it became the stage for the National Civil Rights Movement. Follow in the footsteps of Dr Martin Luther King Jnr, and visit the Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church where he was Pastor from 1954 until 1960. Key landmarks like the Rosa Parks Museum and the Civil Rights Memorial also tell the fascinating story of Montgomery's involvement in events that shaped world history.

Known for being home to the very first Mardi Gras in 1701, Mobile is one of the oldest cities in America. The Mardi Gras is still celebrated every year two weeks before lent as part of a calendar of musical events and the Carnival Museum provides a great insight into the history of the revellers, brilliant costumes and whacky floats.
Mobile was also the scene of an important naval struggle in 1864 when the outnumbered Confederate Fleet were forced to surrender and this is documented at the Mobile Museum which details over 300 years of the city's history. Stop by Oakleigh Garden Historic District to see some beautiful southern style homes dating from the 1800's.
Mobile also delights visitors with its array of delicious seafood restaurants and live music venues-just what you would expect from Jimmy Buffet's hometown. The Lo-Da Entertainment District has over 20 establishments with live music on different nights of the week. Stop by Veets for a late night drink and live bands.
