    "Rendezvous ’14 will be held in the 300 year-old port city of Mobile, Alabama, a city rich in history. Mobile has flown the flags of six countries: France, Spain, England, the United States, the Confederacy, and the short-lived Republic of West Florida. This gracious southern city has the country's oldest Mardi Gras celebration, beautiful waterways, fresh seafood and so much more. Founded in 1702, Mobile offers a unique Southern experience you won't find anywhere else." SHS
