Gulf shores in early March.

My wife and I are coming to celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary in Early March WITHOUT our 4 children!! First, is the beach crowded at that time? Also what is the typical weather there for that time of the year?

Any recommendations for where to stay that is right on the beach?

The beach should not be crowded in early March. Spring break does not start until the second week of March and really does not pick up until after the middle of the month. Average highs in March are 67F and average lows are 55F. The Gulf will be too cold for swimming but great for walking. If you get a beachfront balcony sheltered from wind, sun bathing should not be a problem. Make sure to pick a place with an indoor heated pool if you want to swim.

Most places in Gulf Shores are beachfront. For one bedroom beachfront condos with indoor pools in Gulf Shores we like The Beach Club (especially units ending in "05" which are bigger) and the Lighthouse. In Orange Beach you really can't go wrong with the one bedrooms in most of the Phoenix buildings.

Florida, Auburn and Mississippi Universities are out between the first and eighth of March with LSU out as early as the tenth depending on exams and then nearly every other university that has spring breakers here within a week of that including Alabama. I agree with Albeachfan, The beach Club would be a nice place for an anniversary. It is a full service resort and has a nice spa, indoor pool and on-site restaurants. It will be not crowded at all along the Fort Morgan Beach.
