Along the bluffs of Mobile Bay, on a sloping plateau, Fairhope homes make up the “best small town in the South” as it was called in 2016 by Southern Living magazine. Residents love their town by the Bay with its antebellum homes and streets lined with live oak trees. There is nothing quite as charming as the Fairhope real estate along its walkable downtown, and no matter where people are in town, there’s always a stunning view of the water nearby. While this delightful community does not have the bright white beaches of the Florida panhandle, its laid-back vibe encourages a sense of inner peace, and even new visitors find themselves quickly feeling “at home” in this lovely southern city.
Families who live in Fairhope homes year-round are able to take advantage of Baldwin County Public School System’s mission to provide their students with a quality education that fosters their own learning. The community is dedicated to providing the opportunity for academic excellence and children directly benefit from its family-oriented environment. With five public schools in the area, including 2 high schools, and also private schools like the Maria Johnson School of Organic Education and St. Michael Catholic High School, there are plenty of educational options for every child. Students looking to continue their education beyond high school don’t have to go far since there is a Coastal Alabama Community College campus in town, as well as a University of South Alabama branch. Fairhope is proud to be able to provide its students with everything they need to grow and develop right in their own backyard.
Every community knows that leisure and recreational time is an important part of their residents’ quality of life, and Fairhope is no exception to this rule. With plenty of parks to enjoy, from the Fairhope Municipal Pier and Park that is known as the city’s “town square” and is home to the original commercial pier built in 1894, to the Fairhoper’s Community Park with its 2,200 square foot splash pad and corkscrew slides, there are a wide variety of options for both residents and visitors alike to enjoy the outdoors. Nature lovers will fall in love with Knoll Park’s natural state which has become a favorite of bird watchers, as well as the Beach Park Tree Trail with its 500 species of trees. Families with little ones appreciate Fels Toddler Park, and those with four-legged family members are able to enjoy the two acre Fairhope Dog Park where small and large dogs have their own areas to play. Whether visitors are looking for an enjoyable stroll through Fairhope’s charming downtown, or they simply want to enjoy some of the beauty of the local environment, there’s truly something for everyone in this beautiful city.
