Top 6 Reasons to Live in Mobile, AL

Mobile, Alabama is a cultural hotspot for food, history, art and music. This three hundred year old city is packed with endless adventures for everyone from the history buffs to the beach bums. Here are the top six reasons why you should choose to call Mobile home as almost 200,000 others do.


Whether you are a crawfish boil fanatic or enjoy the finer things, Mobile’s LODA (Lower Dauphin) area has restaurants covering all facets of the taste pallet. If you’re looking for outdoor scenery accompanied by freshly caught seafood, the causeway is home to some of the south’s best seafood restaurants and jaw dropping views. In the downtown area, there is much to discover when it comes to your taste palette. 


Night Life

The relaxing nature of Mobile is contagious for anyone, vacationer or local. Mobile, Alabama’s nightlife scene is a four day event each weekend. With neighboring college students taking a break from class, vacationers traveling from out of town and locals out celebrating after a long hard week of work. Thursday through Sunday, downtown Mobile opens its doors with music, laughs and a lot of love to bring the community together. From an electric piano bar, to the local’s favorite, O’Daly’s Irish Pub, there is a place for everyone!



Mobile, Alabama was founded in 1702 and since then has been under 4 different countries’ rule. The Spanish, French, English and American heritage has created a melting pot of architecture visible by walking the streets of downtown or visiting nearby museums. Be sure to make a stop at the forts around the city to view the remnants of the battles fought in the area over the years.


Mardi Gras

Yes, New Orleans is known for their Mardi Gras celebrations, but Mardi Gras actually originated right here in Mobile (ask any local, they’ll tell you)! French settlers founded the city of Mobile and established the Mardi Gras holiday in honor of lent season in the Cathollic faith. Today, Mardi Gras is a month-long celebration filled with parades, balls and holidays off from work and school. If you haven’t already, check out the Mobile Carnival Museum


Outdoor Activities

Calling all nature lovers, did you know that Mobile has one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world? The delta, located at the top of the bay is home to brackish water, meaning salt water from the ocean and fresh water from the Mobile river mix together and allow many different types of wildlife to co-exist. Kayaks and boats are available to rent to explore the area, or take a wildlife tour and have a guide show you the best spots!



Mobile is one of the best positioned cities in the country, much less the state of Alabama. Not only is Mobile a destination city for vacationers, it is located next to neighboring big cities as well. With Biloxi, New Orleans and the sandy beaches of Gulf Shores all just a quick trip away, Mobile is positioned to allow residents a quick getaway at the drop of a hat. Many people choose to live in Mobile, Alabama because of the competitive cost of nature compared to these surrounding cities.

Whether you are looking for a short-term residence or in search of a place to settle down, Mobile is home to a unique adventure seeking, history loving, community waiting to welcome you!

What Our Residents Have To Say

Absolute best spot in Mobile! Enjoyed every minute of my stay. Short walk to USA campus, great places to eat, best coffeehouse in town, and a few places to relax and grab a drink with friends after a day of work or class. I’ve been in some of the other apartment complexes in the area and Kingswood is honestly the most solid and well-built you’ll find.

The pool and fitness center are great, but I’ve always been a fan of running and biking on Old Shell in the shade of the huge oak trees. My job takes me all over the country and it was always a pleasure to come back home and kick my feet up.

The management and my favorite maintenance guy, Wilbur do an awesome job of keeping the place standing tall and looking good and always worked quickly if I ever had an issue. Heck, I already miss it! Keep up the good work, Kingswood!
