Every other Friday, I'm going to be sharing snapshots that I have taken in and around Mobile. Not only do I want to share with you guys this place, but it will help me to get out and explore. I love the idea of "snapshots", because sometimes they are quick and can be hurried, but always capture a memory. My photos may not always be perfect or frame-worthy, but I hope you enjoy them. I hope you enjoy seeing little glimpses of Mobile and I hope this encourages you to get out, explore your town, and take advantage of all your place may offer. This is #SnapshotsOfMobile. Enjoy!
Mobile has a rich history, with it being The Port City and in the South. One of the most iconic things on Mobile Bay would be the USS Alabama Battleship. The Alabama served in World War ll in the Atlantic and Pacific. The ship was retired in 1962 and brought to Mobile Bay in 1964 where it was later opened as a museum. The USS Alabama is a National Historic Landmark and one of my favorite places in Mobile. This year, for the fourth of July, I spent the day on the ship. Three tours take you all the way up, all the way down, and from bow to stern. My legs also told me that it is an incredible workout. It's also a spectacular place to watch fireworks. If you are ever in the Mobile area, I would definitely take the time to tour this great piece of history.
Here is the list of National Historic Landmarks.
