Lower Alabama, often called "LA", refers to the southernmost parts of Alabama. It is properly applied only to the two counties which border the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay: Baldwin County and Mobile County. This area is characterized by extensive wetlands, but also by long, white sand beaches which are very conducive to relaxing in the sun. The region is widely know as the Redneck Riviera with its cultural heart at the FloraBama Road House.

Tom T. Hall sings about this region in his song, Redneck Riviera.  

Gulf Shores up through Apalachicola
They got beaches of the whitest sand
Nobody cares if gramma's got a tattoo
Or Bubba's got a hot wing in his hand
