While comparatively smaller than other mid-sized cities in Alabama, Foley is the furthest south notable city in the state, almost directly west of Pensacola, Florida. As Foley is so far south, no major Interstates connect the city with larger cities in the area. Highway 98 is the major route from Foley to Pensacola, which also includes access to Interstate 110, then Interstate 10 in the north. Highway 59 also travels north to Interstate 10, making a trip through Pensacola often unnecessary. This makes Foley entirely accessible to even larger auto haulers. According to the U.S. Census, the city covers an area of just under 26 square miles, with a total population of 14,618.
Foley’s close proximity to marshlands, the Gulf of Mexico, and other large bodies of water makes it highly susceptible to tropical storms, hurricanes, and flooding. These natural events can lead to loss of infrastructure and traffic delays that can make travel through the area impossible. Like many other notable southern cities, Foley is popular with snowbirds that travel to find warmer weather when winter hits the north. Due to the close proximity of Foley to Florida, Budget Auto Shipping is particularly prepared to ship to the small city.
