Daphne, Alabama is the perfect location for individuals or families planning a new life on the Gulf Coast. The city was ranked as the ninth safest place to live in Alabama by Safe Choice Security. Better yet, Daphne combines affordable living with scenic bayside views, local restaurants and plenty of activities for both adventurers and leisure seekers.
The interstate I-10 — yes, that I-10 — runs parallel to Daphne, but don’t let that deter you. Imagine driving home from work and watching the sunset over Mobile Bay. Your commute is no longer something to endure, but instead, becomes a peek into nature’s bounty at the Jubilee City. Upon entering Daphne, I-10 splits into US-98. Great oaks and other tall trees line the interstate, attesting to Daphne’s history. US-98 also overlooks the Gator Alley boardwalk, aptly named for the alligators inhabiting the water.
Perhaps most importantly, however, US-98 is the main road for everything, including restaurants and entertainment in the city of Daphne. Locals’ favorites for a meal include Bangkok Thai, Papa’s Place and Boudreux’s Cajun Grill. Shopping hotspots include Daphne’s Jubilee Mall, as well as the Eastern Shore Center in Malbis. Whatever you want to do–you are only one brief drive away!
While driving up and down US-98, soaking in the opportunities, don’t neglect Olde Town Daphne! With its daily menu, Italian-themed Guido’s is perfect for a date night. Afterward, take a nighttime stroll, arm-in-arm, beneath the streetlamps. A bayside park is just down one of the neighborhood roads. Or, if you’re craving something sweet, Whit’s Custards is the perfect spot to satisfy your taste buds!
Ultimately, Daphne is a prime spot to live on the Eastern Shore. The city is nestled perfectly between historic downtown Mobile and quaint Fairhope, offering you the best of both worlds. Better yet, you are put right in the middle of the action for the best time of the year–Mardi Gras! Life gets better when you live in Daphne, and especially when you live in an East Bay apartment.
