Colonial Heights Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Roughly 13.5 miles from the heart of downtown Mobile, Alabama on the city’s west side, is the community of Colonial Heights. This large, primarily residential community spans more than two square miles and is home to over 3,050 residents. It is bound by AL Highway 42 and U.S. Highway 98 on the north and Highpoint Boulevard on the east. On the south, the community extends to the nearby railroad tracks. The zip code for this Mobile County community is 36618.
Most of this community is residential, consisting of single-family homes and undeveloped wooded areas. However, some commercial offerings can be found throughout, as well, especially along the boundary highways. The far eastern portion of the community is home to a small retail center – Overlook Village Shopping Center – which provides convenient shopping and dining options for neighborhood residents. The Forest Hill Shopping Center can be found just east of that, and the nearby highway offers its fair share of popular restaurants and retailers, too.
This conveniently located community is situated near several area attractions. One of the most significant of these is the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Magnolia Grove, situated just outside of neighborhood limits to the west. Here, golfers can choose from an 18-hole short course or 36 championship holes, both situated on former forestland, surrounded by hardwoods, pines, marshland, creeks, and lakes. Several additional golf courses exist within five miles southeast of Colonial Heights, including the Azalea City Golf Club, Spring Hill Golf Course, and Mobile Country Club.
Additional opportunities for outdoor recreation within a few minutes of this community include Megginson Park to the northeast and the Greater Gulf State Fairgrounds to the southwest.
Higher education options within a few miles of Colonial Heights include the University of South Alabama and Spring Hill College, both located to the south of the community.
