Gulf Shores, Alabama
Adventure, fun, relaxation…you’ll find it all on Alabama’s white sand beaches. For years Gulf Shores remained a little-known vacation treasure, but more and more families are discovering the 32 miles of soft sand and clear waters that lace the edges of Alabama’s southern border to the Gulf of Mexico. With attractions like zip lines, championship golf and water sports, travelers are escaping to the beach for their annual vacations and weekend getaways.
Made almost entirely of quartz grains washed down from the Appalachian Mountains thousands of years ago, the white-sand beaches that make up Gulf Shores shorelines are some of the finest in the world. But don’t take our word for it. It’s one of the reasons families return to our Gulf Coast beaches year after year. There’s no better way to unwind from everyday life than spending your days building sandcastles and soaking up the sun. Seagulls singing, waves crashing, children laughing; it’s everything you need to discover a whole new state of relaxation.
Hide a history lesson in a trip to historic Fort Morgan, the guardian of Mobile Bay since 1834 and where four wars were fought. After a day of adventure, refuel with seafood that doesn't get any fresher than right off the boat.
Whether you’re in the mood for fun and adventure or lazy days on the beach, you can do it all in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Bring the family and discover a whole new state of satisfaction while you explore the waterways, relax on the beach, eat your fill of fresh seafood or practice your golf game on the back nine. It’s all here waiting to be discovered.
