Magnolia Springs named Alabama’s “coolest town”
Far & Wide travel site, in a story titled “America’s Coolest Small Towns by State,” named Baldwin County’s Magnolia Springs the Alabama entry on the list. The nomination reads: “Located along the Magnolia River, Magnolia Springs dates back to 1800 and is mere minutes from Mobile, Alabama. This isn’t a suburb, however. No, this is a sleepy town of adorable houses and canopies of oak trees, azaleas, wisteria, dogwoods and, of course, magnolia trees. Drive along its quiet streets and feel completely lost in an authentic Southern backdrop.’’
The site named Sanibel Island the coolest small town in Florida. Mississipp’s entry on the list is New Albany.
