Alabama is often thought of as typically New South, what with its lavish plantations contrasting the weary textile mills, all overlain by that slow "what's-the-rush" attitude. Not to dispel the charm of that myth, but a trip down the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay and along Alabama's Gulf Coast presents ample opportunities for relaxation, creating a vacation-destination atmosphere you might not expect in the Yellowhammer State. From Fairhope southeast to Orange City and then west along the Gulf of Mexico, Alabama provides all the essentials necessary for a memorable weekend getaway.
