Alabama’s hidden treasure, Gulf Shores offers hotel guests the perfect time––plenty to do inland, and all within walking distance of the beautiful Gulf beaches.
See the Civil War battlefield of Mobile Bay at Fort Morgan, or visit scenic Orange Beach and watch for bottlenose dolphins. The Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail offers hiking and biking trails for outdoor lovers, and the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail is a must-see for birdwatching aficionados. If you’re looking for oceanic adventure, see a shrimp boat in action, or come during the summer and watch endangered sea turtles lay their eggs on the Gulf beaches––all close by to your hotel room!
Gulf Shores has plenty of indoor entertainment, as well. Check out the exhibits at the free Gulf Shores Museum, or visit the National Museum of Naval Aviation, which features flight simulators, an IMAX theater, and over 150 restored aircraft.
There are so many outlets, boutiques, restaurants, and hotels in Gulf Shores––and even more in nearby Mobile––it can be hard to decide where to start! And after a day of fun, the Gulf Coast nightlife is the best kind of blend between southern hospitality and beachfront relaxation.
