We arrived at Meaher State Park on Sunday and have eaten our way to Tuesday. It is a good thing we are leaving Wednesday morning!  However, with more southern Good Eats to look forward to, before we leave the states of Mississippi and Louisiana, I guess going on a diet will have to wait until I return home! I won’t even think about Tex-Mex as we travel across Texas!

What do all the items listed below have in common? Good Eats in Spanish Fort, Alabama!!

~Southern Pecan Beer~Soft Shell Crab~Oysters~Red Beans and Rice~Cheesy Grits~Crab Cakes~Seafood Gumbo~Green Fried Tomatoes~Seasoned Fresh Turnips~

Two places, to enjoy a fantastic meal around the Mobile area are: Felix’s Fish Camp and The Oyster House.  Both of these restaurants are located within a couple of miles from the state park.

These are the two we dined at, but there are many more to choose from. Judging by the people eating out in this area, we would say the economy is booming!

If you are ever driving west on 1-10 toward Mobile, Alabama, think about stopping for a day or two at Meaher State Park in Spanish Fort. Ask for their senior discount!

Meaher State Park is a lovely park situated in the wetlands of Mobile Bay.  Lots of Bays in the area: Mobile Bay, Ducker Bay, Chacaloochee Bay, Justin’s Bay,  D-Olive Bay and I am sure there must be others.

The campground has 56 new campsites all with full hookups. It has a new bathhouse with a 6 machine laundry room. All sites have blacktop pads, lots of grassy area between each site and all set in among tall pines. We are in a back-in site right on the Bay. Which bay, I guess it depends in what direction you are looking!!

If you are into touring grocery stores (which I get a big kick out of) while traveling, you will have a wonderful selection to pick from here in Spanish Fort, to include Florida’s Publix and Fresh Market!
