The picturesque Mobile Alabama suburb of Daphne AL homes offers buyers a quiet lifestyle in the heart of Mobile Bay's Eastern Shore. Daphne is just off I-10 in Baldwin County, 11 miles east of Mobile and 45 miles west of Pensacola, Florida. It is known as the Jubilee City in remembrance of the "Jubilee" when visitors flock to Daphne real estate to scoop up blue crabs, shrimp, and fish as land along the shallow shoreline.

Homebuyers choose from over 40 subdivisions of Daphne homes on large lots - from Austin Bridges and Avalon to Chamberlain Trace and French Settlement to Overton Place and The Woodlands of Malbis. In addition, several family farms in Daphne blend their rural ambience to the waterfront landscapes of real estate in the Daphne-Fairhope area. Local produce, pecans, cattle, and dairies are part of the fabric of a high quality lifestyle. Daphne equestrian properties anchor the relaxing southern atmosphere.

Information about the development of historic Daphne AL real estate can be found at the Old Methodist Church Museum of Daphne and the Black Education Museum. Spanish explorers came in the mid-1500s but researchers have found relics of several prior Indian tribes in the area. After incorporating in 1927, Daphne served briefly as county seat. Accented by the beautiful farms and wines endowed by Italian immigrants, the community grew into a resort area.

Daphne is in the Daphne-Fairhope Micropolitan area. For an area of its size, it ranks fourth strongest in the southern United States and #11 in the nation. CNN/Money ranked the friendly small city of approximately 22,000 residents on its list of Top 100 Best Places to Live.
