The USS Alabama  

What: Battleship Memorial Park, 2703 Battleship Parkway, Mobile, Alabama, 36602. An outstanding collection of land, air and sea military vehicles, with the USS Alabama as the main attraction.

How to Get There: Take I-10 from either the east or the west. From anywhere else, head south on Alabama’s great back roads until you hit I-10, then point your front wheel toward Mobile.

Best Kept Secret: There have been seven U.S. Navy ships named “Alabama” reaching back to before the Civil War. Today, a U.S. Navy nuclear submarine sails under that same proud name.

Avoid: Missing Mobile. It’s a beautiful town and its Gulf Coast location makes for great seafood and fabulous hospitality.

Be sure to take a short ride from the Alabama to Dauphin Island to ride the Mobile Bay Ferry across the mouth of the bay to Fort Morgan. From there, ride the beach road through Gulf Shores, Orange beach and Perdido Key and on to Pensacola Beach. Don't miss the new zipline at the beach in Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores or the famous FloraBama Lounge at the state line...
