Foley was named for its founder, John B. Foley of Chicago. In 1902 he bought approximately 50,000 acres of land and became instrumental in the development of rail service to make travel to the area easier.

Our vibrant city is the hub of South Baldwin County, Alabama, situated on the state’s beautiful Gulf Coast. With a quality of life that is second to none, Foley attracts business owners, families and retirees from all across the country. We hope you’ll join us, too.
Many of our abundant recreational opportunities are centered on the water, including the Gulf of Mexico and the many picturesque bays and scenic rivers of the area. A mild, subtropical climate makes our waterways and a wealth of outdoor activities popular year-round.

From the city’s 484-acre Graham Creek Nature Preserve with trails and a canoe/kayak launch to its downtown Antique Rose Trail, there’s plenty of outdoor fun. You’re sure to enjoy our downtown museums and parks that surround our picturesque clock tower, beautiful fountain and pedestrian bridge.

Our newest attraction is the amusement destination OWA, with its exciting theme park and growing variety of shopping, dining and events. You’ll also find numerous shopping and dining opportunities throughout Foley. From one-of-a-kind boutique shopping venues to the renowned Tanger Outlet Center with its name-brand stores and well-known bargains, you’ll find it here. Dining options truly offer something for everyone, from local flavors to world-famous favorites.
