Fairhope is a city in Baldwin County, Alabama, and according to the official US Census conducted in 2000 the city’s population was over 12,000. It is a principal city of the Daphne-Fairhope-Foley Micropolitan Statistical Area, which includes all of Baldwin County. Located in the Mobile Bay area and anchoring its own micropolitan area (in conjunction with Daphne and Foley), Fairhope is the largest of the three and today is home to over 15,000 residents. Fairhope is a growing community and a beautiful one; in 2007 it was voted as the best small town in the South.
Fairhope was founded in 1894 by members of the Fairhope Industrial Association. It was designed to be an exercise in utopian politics by being the first single tax colony, with the aim of eliminating disincentives for productive use of land – this could help maintain high land values for the community. Though the city still exists the utopian ideals it was founded on have been largely abandoned, giving way to more modern ways of thinking in terms of economic growth, city prosperity, and the wealth and happiness of its citizens. Fairhope, however, has maintained that small-town ideology and feel.
During the summer temperatures in the city hit around 90 degrees during the day, with overnight lows often dropping down to around 70 degrees. During the winter, however, temperatures typically hit around 60 degrees during the day, with lows often dropping to around 42 degrees overnight. Snow is relatively uncommon, due to the humid subtropical climate zone, and Fairhope does enjoy some cooler weather effects thanks to its proximity to Mobile Bay, the largest body of saltwater in Alabama.
