The shops in Fairhope are so beautiful and has the small home town atmosphere. You can find clothes, books, art galleries, music and food in downtown.

Recently spent a relaxing weekend visiting Fairhope. Really nice community with a wonderful downtown. The area near the pier is beautiful and offers a wonderful walk and beautiful sunset. The downtown area has many small shops and dining options. Plenty of parking available. A really nice way to spend a couple of relaxing days.

The street has a lot of nice local shops and many have different architecture. You can ride the street or park and walk and shop while you visit. We drove a bit of it a night later.
