Traffic Mobile and Daphne

We are visiting, in a couple weeks, for the first time and are planning on staying in Mobile and visiting the Battleship, DI, and Fort Gaines. I also booked one night over around Daphne as we were looking at possibly going to Fairhope and Gulf Coast Zoo. This would be on a weekday. I realize being summer, weekdays vs. weekends probably don't matter much, but, realistically, what traffic time are we looking at to get to zoo. I know it says on a good day it's an hour, but, I also know it's summer and it's the direction everyone is going to get to the shores. If it is pretty common that it will be stand still traffic and take three hours to get there, then maybe we will pass. Also, are we going to have that same traffic issue going to DI? We will be there the 17th just before the fishing rodeo starts on the 20th. We are used to heavy traffic and standstills at home, but of course we know back roads.

Traffic will not be a big issue

But Mobile and Daphne are VERY close, literally 7 minutes..stay in one or other.. I10 at 27/182 called Malbis exit has several choices

Take 98 from 10 to Foley..on the way stop at the Estuarine Center at Fish River.

The traffic issue is at the I10 tunnel late afternoon virtually any day. Use 90,98 causeway for your travels. We worked in Mobile and lived in Fairhope and made sure we did not use I10 bridge if possible.

Be sure to visit the pier in Fairhope, eat at Market by the Bay for fried shrimp , visit Latteda coffee shop. Mr Genes Beans for icecream

If you want a chance to see gators... at the east end of the causeway is Alligator Alley

Virtually every seafood restaurant on the causeway is excellent except Ralph and Cacoos.

See Felix, Eds, RandR, Original Oyster house, Bluegill
