A small-town community with endless possibilities for
Imagine beautiful old Live Oak trees, keeping watch on the bluffs overlooking Mobile Bay. Softly draped with Spanish moss and swaying in the breeze, these sentinels of time could tell many stories about Spanish Fort and the surrounding area - from historical events dating back centuries, to more recent achievements of a city which exemplify the true meaning of community.
Spanish Fort captures the essence of small-town living with endless possibilities for entertainment, shopping and waterfront activities, as well as delicious dining options - we, as Southerners, know a thing or two about good food! Situated along the banks of the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta, Spanish Fort is in an ideal location for outdoor sports and activities. In a matter of just minutes, from anywhere in town, one can "put in" and head out, or stay on the shore to wet a line and patiently wait for the tug of a "keeper". Just ask a resident or business owner and they will share their knowledge of the area’s beautiful parks, historical sites and locations for fishing, boating, camping, or bird watching. They might also share a great fishing story or debate about the one that got away - though it is doubtful that they will share with you the secret location of their favorite fishing spot!
First class shopping, dining and entertainment
Along with the full-service gas station and the local barber shop, Spanish Fort offers quaint shops for consignment shoppers, antique lovers and artists alike. Two large shopping malls anchor opposite sides of the City, making Spanish Fort a popular location for a day of shopping, dining, movies and other entertainment options.
A visit to our City would not be complete without an evening of dining and live entertainment at one of the well-known seafood restaurants along the Causeway. Tempting menus include the freshest seafood and many other delicious options to suit even the most discriminating diner. Overlooking Mobile Bay and the surrounding wetlands, each location offers a fun and unique view of local wildlife, birds, alligators and a breathtaking sunset. We think that it is the perfect way to end a perfect day!
Centrally located and easy to get to from any direction
With quick and easy access to Interstate-10, Spanish Fort is only minutes from Mobile or Pensacola airports.
