We stopped by the visitor center while it was raining outside. It is a beautiful venue, well lighted and promotional materials nicely displayed. We were so fortunate to have Peggy help us. She was patient, friendly, understanding and helpful. Thank you for helping make our visit to Gulf Shores/Orange Beach so successful.

We always stop here on our first day in Orange Beach. They have brochures on everything to do in Orange Beach and surrounding areas. You can get info on chartering fishing boats, renting condos, paddle boards kayaks and more. You will find many menus and discount coupons for local restaurants. Great place to get info for you vacation.

The staff is very helpful. They have their brochures very well organized and they try to keep up with the businesses, such as if they close or have different hours. I was very impressed.
