“Information galore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Many pamphlets are available and the friendly, competent staff can help you find the information you are seeking. Be sure to get the three local maps of Orange Beach/Gulf Shoes, Pensacola, and the Mobile area. They will help you find you way around if you are new to the area. The welcome center is a good place to start your visit

“First Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We have been to Gulf Shores/Orange Beach many times, but one of the first places we stop is the Orange Beach Welcome Center. They have hundreds of informative pamphets, many with coupons for events, resturants, hotels, rv parks, and other activities. They even have the local telephone book and newspapers for you to take - all at no charge. The people that work there are knowledgeable and pleasant. Suggest stopping in - worth the 20 minutes of your time to get a better vacation.
