Bass Pro Shops – Spanish Fort, Alabama

This post is part of a series of Day Trip to Mobile, Alabama posts.  See the other places that we visited:  Gulf Coast Exploreum, Fort Conde, and the USS Alabama.

We have had a love/hate relationship with Bass Pro Shops ever since my husband started doing some major hiking.  Every time he schedules a new Appalachian Trail hike, we schedule a visit to the Bass Pro.  I love to visit the store…I hate the amount of money the store is able to pull from my wallet!  Bass Pro is a great store to take the kids to.  If you need an item that relates to the great outdoors, they probably have in stock!  The store is HUGE!  Not only are there all sorts of fun things to test out before you buy but there is a humongous fish tank in the back of the store with a variety of very large (are you sensing a big theme here?!) fish swimming.  You can check out the aquarium and then head to the 2nd floor where there is an arcade game.  You could spend hours in this place!

Bass Pro Shop also has a ton of kid-oriented activities.  At Christmastime, you can do a craft and sit on Santa’s lap.  At Easter, they had an egg hunt.  Check the schedule for their events, workshops, and food tastings!

  1. We love Bass Pro Shop. We normally don’t buy anything from there since we are not really into hunting, camping, hiking or much of outdoor activities. But we always walk in there and spend some fun time in the store.

  2. Bass Pro Shop is a cool store. I haven’t been to the one over near Mobile yet. I’ve visited the one in Destin.
