A visit to Orange Beach and Gulf Shores offers the perfect balance of non-stop activity and lay-around-doing-nothing time. Gulf Shores’ sugar-white beaches stretch 32-miles along a 27,000 acre island on the northern most coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Sand dunes covered in sea oats and turquoise waters are the norm on the coast while inland areas feature live oaks and pines. Freshwater lakes, rivers, bayous and coves add nearly 400,000 acres of protected water to the area.
Putter around a bit on one of the championship golf courses. Cast your line for deep-sea adventure on one of the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach fishing charters. Travel back in history with a visit to Fort Morgan, the site of the Civil War Battle of Mobile Bay.
