Best known for its picturesque downtown and Southern charm, Fairhope is nestled right on Mobile Bay. The convenience of location combined with its unique downtown shops and restaurants makes Fairhope a destination for home buyers, especially those looking for bayfront homes. The homes along the water are mere minutes from Fairhope’s downtown, which touts a local bookstore and coffee shop, a year-round Christmas store, a Christmas-themed bar, an ice cream shop, several delicious dining options and local clothing boutiques. North Beach Park and the Fairhope Municipal Pier are convenient to downtown. On weekends, you'll often find families fishing from public piers and relaxing on the sand near the bay. Several local parks offer splash pads, running trails and family fun. Fly Creek Marina provides quick access to the water for even more fun in the sun. Fairhope’s elementary, intermediate and high school are part of the Baldwin County Public School System.
