Mobile famously hosts the oldest Carnival celebration in the United States. As French Louisiana’s first capital, Mobile initiated Mardi Gras in 1703.

Participate in Mobile’s multi-week celebration.
Mobile has many historic districts and numerous landmarked buildings. Stroll around the nine-block De Tonti Square Historic District, home to notable residences built in Italianate, Greek revival and Federal architectural styles. A short drive away, find the magnificent Bragg-Mitchell Mansion. Judge John Bragg had this neoclassical manor built so his family could enjoy Mobile’s social season during Mardi Gras. Take a guided tour of the mansion’s ornate rooms and walk through the manicured gardens.
