Many brochures to look through for all activities. Pick up the free tourist books for ads for discounts at area businesses. They are currently building a larger one just a few blocks north from the current place.

We had not been to Gulf Shores since 1999 so we thought we would start at the Welcome Center. The ladies working that day were full of information and friendly advice. Picked up some coupons,too. Great place to start.

The women were very pleasant, helpful and informative. They gave a coupon book to use at the various attractions in Gulf Shores and the surrounding area. They also gave us a suggestion for a diner to eat breakfast. The diner was excellent!
