Condé Nast Traveler has named Mobile, Alabama one of the “Best Places to Go in North America & the Caribbean in 2024.”

Our city was 1 of only 12 others showcased in the article!
Although Mardi Gras may be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the Azalea City, Mobile is recognized for its “all-year celebration of the city’s African American history.” A few of the significant cultural moments mentioned include the opening of Clotilda: The Exhibition, Isom Clemon Civil Rights Memorial Park and the Alabama Contemporary Art Center’s exhibition “Remembering the Avenue.”
