Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Perdido Key are great areas to visit in the Fall - we love it and the visitor centers offer plenty of specials and amenities

If you want something to do this place will have what you want. From fishing excursions, restaurants, places to stay and things to do. there will be information on it at the welcome center. I would stop by the very first thing upon entering town to line out your activities.

The personnel staffing the Welcome Center are very helpful and well informed. They were able to assist me in making sure I knew exactly where I needed to go for my Birdfest trips. They also knew the best places to go for dining - this is a definite first stop for someone new to the area.

This place is close to the bridge that you cross to get to the beach and the folks manning the desk were so nice and helpful. We also appreciated the way that the brochures were organized, by topic, such as restaurants, activities, etc.

Everything about our cabin was excellent! Uber clean! Great amenities! Quiet! Perfect! Outside screened in porches and deck were perfect for coffee and visiting until late in the night. Felt very safe and secure!

Went to be on the beach with our 2 year old granddaughter. It was a successful 4 day excursion.Our vacation was primarily geared around our 2 year granddaughter. Our mission was to provide a setting with a pool and beach front access. EXTREMELY happy with the swimming pool wading area that accommodated this age group where we stayed.
