About Lower Alabama

“Lower Alabama” refers to the counties that border just north of the State of Florida. These counties include Geneva County, Covington County, and Houston County.

In contrast to Lower Alabama, there is also a “Southern Alabama” popularly consisting of Alabama counties that edge upon the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay i.e Baldwin County and Mobile County. Lengthy, white, sandy beaches are typical of this geographic region, making it very favorable to tourism, and over the past few decades, luxury golf courses have also been developed in these areas.

The largest cities in Lower Alabama are Birmingham, Dothan, Auburn, and Madison.

Some of the major cities in Southern Alabama include Huntsville which is the most populated, Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile, and Tuscaloosa among others.

Covington County is a bit more populated with just under 38,000 people in the 2020 census. Covington also contains a part of the beautiful Conecuh National Forest. Houston County is the most populated of the three, with a 2020 census putting the population at just under 110,000 people. It also contains a part of the greater Dothan city.

What’s more about Southern Alabama Counties?

Baldwin County is located on the Gulf coast in the southwestern part of Alabama. It is one of Alabama’s only two counties that borders the Gulf of Mexico. It has a population of over 230,000 people as of the last census. Bay Minette is the county seat. Baldwin County has 4 of the 10 fastest growing cities in Alabama and it’s the largest county in the state.

Due to the planned moving in of some major manufacturing companies, like Airbus Mobile, the predicted employment growth peaks at 36.80%, so there are jobs available for those who want in.

Mobile County, also known as “The Port City”, or “Azalea City” houses Alabama’s only Saltwater Port, the 9th largest, and 12th busiest seaport in the U.S. Being the only port of its kind in Alabama, it has long been crucial to the state’s economy by offering access to both the Gulf of Mexico and inland rivers. The County has colonial histories from France, Great Britain, and Spain, aiding its rich architectural designs, cuisines, and various Art Museums. Most notable is the Mobile Museum of Art. Mobile County has a population of over 400,000 people.

“The little known Gem of the South”

Southern Alabama’s Gulf Coast or Shores, a coastal City on the Gulf of Mexico, is known as “Paradise Island”, or “Little known Gem of the South”. Orange Beach and Gulf Shores are visited by thousands of tourists each year. Its light, sandy beaches, and splendid water bring nature and goodness to one place. It is home to nature reserves, parks, and the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail, a hiking trail to explore nature’s beauty secrets. Seven trails among six distinct ecosystems make up more than 15 miles of the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail complex through Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, Alabama, and the Gulf State Park.

The best thing about this trail is the wildlife. There are many places to stop and enjoy the scenery as you can see deer, foxes, coyotes, many varieties of snakes, alligators, shorebirds, turtles, birds of prey (bald eagles and osprey), rabbits, and possum.

Freeport, Florida house

Having tried my luck to sell my Freeport, Fl house for over 8 months, I turned to Purple Egg Real Estate and couldn’t believe it when I got a cash offer the same day. It was unreal. The team literally went above and beyond to facilitate the deal and make the home selling process quite seamless.
