MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - The city of Mobile is looking for a new site for its downtown welcome center.

For years the city’s tourism agency has operated a welcome center inside Fort Conde, a recreation of a Colonial-era bastion that protected the city. But the site can be difficult to find, particularly for visitors coming in on Water Street, a main thoroughfare.

Mayor Sandy Stimpson tells WKRG-TV (https://bit.ly/1nspSV6 ) the city and Visit Mobile, the tourism agency, will announce a new location within a few weeks.

Once the new welcome center opens, it’s likely Fort Conde Village will be operated by the City Museum which is located just across the street. Fort Conde opened on July 4th, 1976 to mark the nation’s bicentennial.
