Welcome to Daphne, AL
Daphne is located in Baldwin County, Alabama, on the eastern shoreline of Mobile Bay, just off I-10. Located 11 miles east of Mobile, Daphne is conveniently located on the Eastern Shore. With the City population approximately 19,356 and growing, Daphne is the largest city in Baldwin County, with more than 3,500 students attending schools. Over the past few years, Daphne’s population has increased by 30%. Despite the rapid growth, Daphne has been able to maintain the ambience of a small town where the people are friendly and caring, and newcomers soon become good friends.
Daphne is perhaps most famous for being one of the few places in the world to experience the phenomenon known as a “Jubilee”. This event brings blue crabs, shrimp and fish into the shallow waters of the shoreline, just waiting to be scooped up by those waiting to fill their ice chests. Thus giving Daphne the title “The Jubilee City.”
