Home of the first Mardi Gras celebration in the U.S., Mobile is a place where locals and visitors alike take to the streets to watch parades and enjoy the moderate winter weather. Between events, there are lots of outdoor water-based activities, such as fishing, paddling and power boating, to enjoy. On land, there are museums, art galleries, music and theatre productions. Average high temperatures in a typical Mobile winter range from the low 60s to the low 70s, while the average lows range from 40 to 50 degrees. 2 CAJUN COAST, LOUISIANA Where The Sun Rises Over The Cypress Featuring bayous filled with cypress trees and moss-draped live oaks, the Cajun Coast has been called "hauntingly beautiful" by National Geographic. Fans also praise its food and music, antebellum homes, museums and 19th Century historic district. Top-rated golf is available at one of the newest courses on Louisiana's Audubon Golf Trail and with 16 local festivals per year, winter meeting-goers are bound to experience one of them. All these activities are available year- round, due to the Cajun Coast's mild climate. During the winter months, high temperatures in this area range from the low 60s to low 70s, while low temperatures range from the mid 40s to the mid 50s. 3
