Great Place. I couldn't be more satisfied. Can't wait to go back

The people. Super friendly and amazing. I made friends and we are going out tonight


HomeSnacks User

lots of criminals in mobile. i think it must have a high crime rate. this is a place i would not raise children in

the people are not all friendly there. i like a small town vibe and this town does not give that feeling. landscape is beautiful though


HomeSnacks User

I live in mobile and it's a very nice place full of great and friendly people very good for retirement

My favorite place here is cooper riverside park it has great fishing


HomeSnacks User

This place is really scary and racist and I don't like those kinds of middle of the know where places.

It is racist and not good


HomeSnacks User

HomeSnacks User

Lots of crime but do you blame Mobile or Prichard- No its not dangerous living here. I mean i dont feel unsafe. But their is a lot of crime. This city just does not have anything to offer. They might if they new how to run their city parks and city in general.

When my family comes to town to visit 1st thing i do is take them accross the bay to nicer prettier towns you want to walk around in

The truth remains, if like very close minded, seriously rude and unfriendly people, all you have to do is come to Mobile, Alabama. If you don't figure it out at first, you will once the scheming, plotting and gossip behind your back starts. SO many gun toting red necks, you'll literally think you're being punished for mistakes in a previous life. And nosy, they'll know more about what you have in your own pockets and inside your house and car than you will! Just get ready to fight a lot and have some shoot outs with really, really stupid and uneducated, hate filled people. Forget about finding a decent single girl too, those kind marry straight out of high school and the parents don't approve outsiders. If you look different, think different, dress different, have a different accent other than hillbilly, or especially if you believe independently, they will not welcome you and try everything they can to make your life so miserable that you simply give up trying and leave. The beaches would be nice if you don't mind siting in 5 HOURS of traffic just to get there one way! Only to find the same exact welcome waiting for you there as well. Then there's the racist black folks. And then there's the white trailer trash. Most of the women are nasty and extremely unattractive. Healthy people aren't a concern either, you'll be hard pressed to find healthy eateries and bottled water, but fried foods and beer is everything to them! And "going mudding". Oh, and they will murder their own relatives over a dumb college football argument for which is the most important thing in their entire lives. It's so boring and awful. Oh, by the way, this isn't merely for Mobile, but for the ENTIRE state of Alabama. I lived there for 20 years before I finally gave up trying to make that place my home. Imagine h**l on earth and there you have it. The ONLY good places to live in America actually, are IF YOU ARE SERIOUSLY RICH. That's what it boils down to anymore. Just money. That's all this place has left, and without an enormous absurd amount of money, your entire life is going to s**k really, really bad. And it's only going to get worse and worse and far more worse than that. I know you don't want to hear it, but by all means, you may go find out for yourself.

Charming, historic, polite, reasonably safe, great cultural heritage, fantastic food. My new home! Fell in love on a weeklong business visit and moved here.

Good: weather, light traffic even at 'rush hour', cost of living is almost too low.

Bad: Property crime. Lock stuff up! I blame it on French heritage.
