  • Visiting the Area

    City of Fairhope, Alabama

    In 1894, our community was established by a group of adventurous people who came together with a “fair hope of success.” Their experimental community blossomed and grew into a city. Now, more than 100 years later, Fairhope’s “success” is more than apparent in our bustling downtown, spacious parks, and tree-shaded neighborhoods.

    We’re not a big city – in fact, Fairhope still retains much of its original small-town ambiance, but Fairhope is unique in many ways. We’re known for our active arts community, exceptional schools, outstanding public services, excellent senior services, and top-notch recreational programs for all ages.
