Great selection of brochures and things to do in the Gulf Shores area. Make sure to ask for the detailed map of Gulf Shores/Orange Beach that shows all the various restaurants and condos etc. Extremely helpful.

We found really good coupons here especially for things the kids liked to do. Discounts to restaurants, THE Track, Mini putt golf, the zoo, ropes course and they gave us easy directions to find places we were not sure how the best way to get to

They had a lot of material on local attractions, but it is the same stuff you see in the lobby of motels. We were never greeted nor asked if we need in assistance. They were more interested in putting up a display than helping.

Staff is fun and helpful. Always stop to get the Mullet Wrapper (local happenings) and menus. Lots of information available on sightseeing and make sure to get a coupon book.

My hubby and I traveled to Gulf Shores last year and had a blast of a time. We stayed at the Microtel hotel and it was just minutes from the beach area. Great food and what a view.

I enjoyed the Hummingbird Zip Line and the Kayaks. The staff was wonderful, friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend Richard, Pat and Edward and the Gulf State Park team.
