Things to do
Relax & do your
own thing here
Just minutes from downtown Fairhope, Emma’s Bayhouse offers an ideal central location as the base for so many different activities.
When groups or conferences come to town, we’re the perfect home base. The same goes for kids’ sporting tournaments in the area.
Deep sea fishing charters are another great reason to come to Emma’s. Or anglers can fish directly from the Fairhope Municipal Pier.
Golfers will love the year-round access to local links at challenging area courses.
Nature lovers have much to love in Fairhope, starting with Bayfront Park just next store to Emma’s, with its duck ponds, picnic area, fountain, and award winning rose garden. Cyclists can stop and smell the roses on their way to nearby trails.
During the Jubilee on Mobile Bay’s eastern shore, catch the excitement—and the sea creatures—as they come in to the beach by the thousands.
Fairhope is home to a wide variety of gift stores, specialty boutiques, cafés and coffee shops to visit, as well as culinary delights at local restaurants and eateries.
With so many “what to do’s”, Emma’s Bayhouse is the perfect starting point for “where to do them”. There’s something for just about anyone here, so give us a call and we’ll help set something up for you.
Day trip 1
Take a few hours to shop the different boutiques in downtown Fairhope, and grab a bite to eat and a glass of wine at Camellia Café. Then enjoy a leisurely bike ride along the scenic trails of North Beach Park and Knoll Park. Heading back to Emma’s, stop and smell the roses in the garden at neighboring Bayfront Park. There’s fishing at Fairhope Municipal Pier, or, if you’d rather, scrumptious sushi already waiting for you at Master Joe’s for dinner.
Day trip 2
After breakfast here at Emma’s, hit the links at one of the area’s beautiful golf courses—Quail Creek, Rock Creek, and Kiva Dunes. Then stop by Panini Pete’s for their world-famous muffaletta sandwich, before an afternoon at the Eastern Shore Art Center. Watch the sunset at one of the nearby white sand beaches just minutes away, and then come back to Fairhope to sample some of the finest Mexican cuisine and tequila at Agave Cocina.
Day trip 3
Head to the other side of the bay and visit the Battleship USS Alabama in Mobile, along with the historic airplanes and submarine at Battleship Memorial Park. After a lunch at The Noble South on Dauphin Street, make a point to spend plenty of time to stroll the floral paths of gorgeous Bellingrath Gardens, worth an afternoon by itself. When you drive back to Fairhope, enjoy casual fine dining at Tamara’s downtown.
