Dog & Fowl Rivers Communities
Just north of Dauphin Island, Fowl River and Dog River feed into Mobile Bay. These areas are hot spots for water recreation, local fishermen and weekend boating. Various family-owned seafood restaurants feed locals and tourists alike. Dauphin Island Parkway provides a scenic drive from these areas with views of Mobile Bay. Enjoy an evening dinner on the water while watching the boats come into the marinas from their afternoon excursions. Wildlife can be found throughout Mobile Bay’s many inlets, including manatee and alligator sightings. On a clear day you can look to your east from Dog River and see parts of Baldwin County’s Eastern Shore.
Overlooking Fowl River in Theodore, Bellingrath Gardens & Home offers walking tours through the 65-acre property. Each Christmas thousands of locals and tourists gather at Bellingrath to welcome the region's largest Christmas lights display, Magic Christmas In Lights, featuring over 3-million lights across the popular property.
