Le passé, le présent et le futur de la musique américaine se mêlent dans une ambiance florissante à Montgomery, Mobile et Gulf Shores, dans le sud de l’Alabama.

Commencez votre voyage à Montgomery, la ville au bord de l’eau qui a vu naître le mouvement américain des droits civiques et où la musique flotte dans les rues. Puis descendez plus au sud à Mobile, où s’est tenue la première fête de Mardi gras de tous les États-Unis. Pour terminer vos aventures musicales, rendez-vous dans les pittoresques villes de Gulf Shores et Orange Beach, où vous pourrez écouter toutes sortes de styles dans les bars au bord des plages de sable blanc.

Montgomery’s Rich History

Montgomery offers live music set against a historical backdrop. Begin on the scenic Riverwalk, in the heart of the riverfront entertainment district, where a life-size bronze statue of country music legend Hank Williams greets visitors a block from the museum celebrating his life and career. Outdoor entertainment, restaurants and bars are plentiful along the Alabama River. Snap a picture in the commemorative crosswalk near the Capitol, with its painted footsteps honoring the peaceful protesters of the Selma-to-Montgomery March. Experience civil rights history at the Rosa Parks Bus Stop, which marks the spot where the determined activist boarded a bus and refused to sit in the back. Unwind at the award-winning Capitol Oyster Bar, which overlooks the river. The laid-back, off-the-beaten-path spot is known to locals as one of the area’s top blues venues.

Party in Mobile

Mobile is a port city that was born to celebrate. In fact, the USA’s first Mardi Gras celebration was held here in 1703. Today, nearly a million people come to party each year during Mardi Gras festivities. Ornate and colorful statues line Mobile’s Mardi Gras Park to honor the event’s central figures. Soak in the city’s playful spirit at Callaghan’s Irish Social Club, a bustling pub that frequently hosts local musicians. It was named one of the best Southern bars in a Southern Living magazine feature. While in the area, take some time to eat at South Alabama’s variety of local restaurants, known for serving fresh seafood caught right off Alabama’s shores.
