We visited cemeteries, various styles of architecture and toured the canal system and areas where the system failed. We had a refreshment stop at the Art Museum park.
Swamp & Bayou Tour Rating:
We drove about 15 miles across the Mississippi to the back country where we took about an hour air boat ride through narrow tree-lined bayous. We saw lots of wildlife including closeup views of alligators and bayou cabins.
Our visit here was just a morning. The ships tour went to Bellingrath Gardens and Home, although I skipped it in favor of a visit to a local L\laundromat. We docked behind the Convention center, right in the midst of the downtown area. A free shuttle hits the major downtown sites about every 15 minutes. Most Blount stops in Mobile spend the day there and a great option is the USS Arizona Battleship. That visit requires a taxi.
