Transportation: Getting To and Around Mobile

Mobile is located along the beautiful Gulf Coast and is Alabama’s only seaport. Getting here is as easy as it gets from I-65 N/S or I-10 E/W. The road to the beach runs through us. This year our district III Engaged Encounter Convention will be held in The Historic Admiral Hotel, located in the heart of our beautiful downtown. We hope to see y’all soon!
