Stopped at Orange Beach Welcome Center to ask some questions we did not ask at the Gulf Shores Welcome Center. The personnel are wonderful, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. You cannot spend time in the area without stopping.

What a fresh, open , clean, airy welcome center, with great staff that were very helpful. Their brochures are plentiful, and informative. Great location, plenty of parking, clean bathrooms and the "Mullett" wrapper is usually available for all upon entry. That give up to date specials, and event information. Great place. thanks !
