Description to follow will allow you to take a driving tour through the Eastern Shore. Please remember this is a partial list but we want to share our natural beauty with you.
Punta Clara, the Eastern Shore's westernmost point of land, is located between Mobile Bay waters on two sides. Fully aware of its militarily strategic value halfway between the northern delta and the southern passageway into the Gulf of Mexico, the Spanish named it during their stay in the region. Translated to Point Clear by its English successors, unincorporated Point Clear is now home to the Grand Hotel, which originated 158 years ago.
"The Grand" boasts a full service spa, marina, and two 18 hole championship golf courses which are part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. In early years, "The Grand" was used as a Confederate hospital during the Civil War. Other historical landmarks are St. Frances at the Point Episcopal Church, a lovely ornate church and Punta Clara Kitchens which makes the country's best pralines and fudge.
The overwhelming beauty of this area is enhanced by the views of Mobile Bay. The older homes are centered along the Boardwalk which runs from the Grand on south to Zundel's Pier. There are also many beautiful homes along the rolling pastures of the old polo fields that are on larger estate size lots.
Three main highlights to this community, The Grand Hotel, Mobile Bay and Lakewood Golf Course.
