San Antonio has the Alamo, D.C. has the Smithsonian, and Huntsville has NASA. But what about Mobile? Everyone has driven past the battleship on their war back and forth across the bay, but if you haven't been there yet, trust me. you need to go!

Sometimes locals can taken for granted having the...

Delta Woods and Water Expo

When we first began brainstorming what we wanted easternshoreal.com to look like, we knew that a heavy emphasis on bringing attention to local events would be a priority. This weekend, the annual Delta Woods and Water Expo is happening. This is just the type of event we knew we really wanted people...

Mother’s Day Ideas!

This is a Public Service Announcement for sons, dads, and daughters. Mother's Day is Sunday, May 11th and it's time to start thinking of ways to sweep her off her feet. For those of you young enough to get away with the homemade coupons for chores, you've got it easy. But for the rest of us, we...
