Communities

The communities along Alabama’s Coastal Connection are linked by more than the byway. They each have their own connections to the land and the water. Farming and fishing are part of the culture here. Quaint downtowns still bustle. Beachfront resort areas have grown from what began as popular local escapes.

Now many have discovered all the natural beauty and recreational opportunities Alabama’s coast has to offer. Shrimp boats of Bayou La Batre, farmlands of Elberta and sunsets over the bay from Fairhope are just a few of the sights to see every day. For information about the communities along the byway, and all there is to see and do, contact the organizations below.
