There is so much to recommend Weeks Bay, that to try to list them all would be impossible. Taking a boat, cruising throughout the area and contributory rivers is wonderful, but walking the surrounding trails is equally good, and fishing from boat or shore is rewarding and fun. The Nature Center is really neat and must be visited. Overall Weeks... More

It's not a long walk and would be accessible with a wheelchair. The path has many of the plants named which makes then all very interesting. There are lots of native azaleas and ferns. It was very quite and while were walking we discovered the yelowhammer woopecker. That was such a highlight as ive never seen one before. What a... More

Many native plants, clearly labeled so you know what you are looking at (horticultural name too). Stopped at the Pitcher Plant Bog, but being winter, the plants were sleeping. Interesting displays at the nature center.

We were interested in the wildlife around the area of Gulf Shores. We got to the Weeks Estuary early one morning. The welcome center has many displays which children would love. There is a mile Boardwalk loop. The trees are labelled which I loved. The bay view is sensational. Across the road there is a walk around a bog with... More

Weeks Bay is good to visit in your boat! You can go here for Fishing, Shrimping, Water skiing whatever you like. It is nice out here and you can go do whatever you like whereever you want. This is a nice quiet place to visit.

I love the pitcher plant bog trail, the Nature Center, and the boardwalk that leaves from the Nature Center. It's a great place to take visitors to the area to see natural, coastal habitat. I love it. It's good for all ages, anyone who wants to get out and see something besides beaches and battleships! All the walks are on... More

Weeks Bay is so relaxing. We took our dog and walked along the boardwalks. It was so much fun. Loved all the flora and fauna being identified. It makes learning fun. The pier at the end of the boardwalk was incredible looking over Weeks Bay.

I have had the opportunity over the last few years to work with the staff at WBR teaching environmental education to local school groups. It is a great and close field trip for young and old. I'm still learning about all the plants and animals that call Weeks Bay, an estuary surrounded by wetlands... home.
