I couldn't believe that the Mayor of Orange Beach denigrated the entire Widespread Panic fan base. I'm a hard working, successful Christian and it is extremely offensive for him to judge me and my husband based on our musical taste, especially when his 'facts' were completely wrong and we heard that he is a hypocrite in that he is a...

What a fun little spot that we just happened upon on our way from Orange Beach to Mobile. Loved the light show in the palm trees and the ferris wheel!

Kids and I rode the Ferris wheel since we had free ride coupons. Nothing to exciting for me, kids enjoyed it non-the-less. We ate dip-n-dots and reminded ourselves that they are way over priced for what they are. Scanned the shops to see if there was anywhere we wanted to walk into. There wasn't. So we left.

Stopped by to check out Orange Beach. We were pretty impressed and plan a retun trip. Lots to do, places to stay and places to eat. And of course the beach. It was too windy the day we were there, but is looks great.

Some selections are... More

We went on a Tuesday around 5, and there was nobody there, and over half of the shops were closed. We went for the Ferris wheel, but it was closed also...
