Azalea City: Mobile, Alabama

Mobile’s entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well within the walls of the Urban Emporium. This downtown destination is the city’s only retail incubator, with space for more than two dozen entrepreneurs offering products with a quintessential Mobile flair. From ceramics to honey, the Dauphin Street staple has something for everyone. Serda’s Coffee Company is another Mobile original worth a visit for its delicious tea and coffee blends, as well as its decadent gelato.

Alabama’s green pastures and blue waters provide more than just picturesque backdrops to Gulf Coast adventures. Mobile’s culinary artists tempt palates with fresh seafood and farm-to-table treats. The Noble South has made a name for itself with an ever-changing menu that has included everything from chicken hearts to Wagyu beef tartare. Panini Pete’s will whip up an unforgettable muffuletta as you sip an espresso and take in the landscape from the sidewalk, or come for weekend brunch and treat yourself to a fresh beignet. Housed in a former fire station, Firehouse Wine Bar offers a great place to unwind with its extensive menu of wine and craft beers.
