The Dauphin Acres
neighborhood lies just 15 minutes west of downtown Mobile,
Alabama. Residents in the area's rental apartments and townhomes enjoy easy access to everyday essentials and exercise
activities at the popular retail chains and fitness centers that line Interstate 65, Dauphin Street, and Airport Boulevard in the western half of the neighborhood.
The area also houses
some popular independent stores. Mobile Records off Emogene Street draws customers from miles around to browse its extensive selection of vinyl, CDs, and cassettes and benefit from the knowledge of its staff. Family-owned Lou's Jewelry on Airport Boulevard designs customized wedding and engagement bands. A short drive to the north, Old Shell Market sells local farm-fresh produce Monday through Saturday.
Popular fast-food chains and international cuisine abound in the area. Yak the Kathmandu Kitchen on Dauphin Street serves up spicy Indian treats alongside more unusual fare, such as momo chicken (steamed dumplings) and salt lassi. Satisfy your seafood cravings at Cajun Mudbugs at the Loop, with steaming plates of crawfish, snow crab, and shrimp.
