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.

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.
