Fantastic gentleman who brought the city of Mobile to life for us. A leisurely stroll through the city that began Mardi Gras in the United States, gave us new insights to the rhythm and soul a classic southern American city. The highlight by far is Craig's tour through the Mardi Gras Museum ... the dozens and dozens of costumes and the stories behind the families who host the parties where they were unvailed were truly unbelievable. Great suggestions on where to eat and get a real feel for the town
