You won't regret adding University of South Alabama to your itinerary.
To find it, you'll have to travel 160 miles (257 kilometers) from the state capital, Montgomery, until you get to Mobile.
Though you'll only find 2 accommodations in the area, they will put you in a position to have an easy commute from the site. The Hampton Inn and Suites Mobile-Medical Center/Airport and Homewood Suites by Hilton Mobile Airport-University Area are located within 2 miles (3 kilometers) of University of South Alabama.
If you're not hung up on fancy service so long as you have a comfortable bed to sleep on, stay a few nights at one of the area's budget-friendly solutions. A couple of your options are the La Quinta Inn Mobile and the Jameson Inns Mobile.
With all the excitement of a day's adventures, it's sometimes easy to forget about lunch. Just a short hop away, Kangaroo Express is an excellent place to refuel for the afternoon. Is your stomach still growling? Constantine's Mediterranean Grill & Hooka is also close-at-hand and offers visitors a more comprehensive dining experience. Anybody who loves an occasional drink can also pull up a bar stool at Chef Sake's Restaurant and Sushi Bar, another short walk away.
