During our trip to the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area, we found The Wharf. So glad that we did. It had everything from shopping, movie theatre, giant ferris wheel to great restaurants. It was a place where we could go to unwind after the day at the beach. There was ample parking and the cool thing was there was a light... More

We always have to find time each trip to Gulf Shores to go to The Wharf. We love to grab a frappiccino at the coffee shop there and then just walk around and shop a little. We have taken our neices on the Ferris Wheel and we all really enjoyed that. Christmas time there is really fun with the laser... More

Have not been in any of the stores and rest. Did go to a movie. Too far to walk with a cane. Went to a neat car show there.

The area is very clean and family oriented. There are a lot of shops and even a stage for different event hostings. We spent a lot of time at the arcade upstairs. Really cool games for the teens and little ones.

We stopped by the wharf the other evening and were pleasantly surprised. There were tons of stores, all sorts of restaurants, and even bars. There is a beautiful marina behind the complex too if you just feel like taking a stroll to admire the beautiful yachts. There is a sound and light show every night at 830pm which was cool... More

Great place to look at awesome boats you wish you could afford! A good time shopping and snacking on a hot afternoon, but you better take a little money-snacks were expensive. Had a good time, nice beach break.
