Gulf Shores Getaway: Going Coastal

UNLESS YOU’RE IN THE KNOW, you might not realize that Gulf Shores, Alabama rivals the Florida coastline for some of the finest sandy beaches in the South. Cruise along Beach Boulevard and the Sunshine State’s border is just a stone’s throw up the road.

This family-friendly Alabama destination – a sleepy town until the height of the summer season – delivers the perfect balance of non-stop activity and lay-around-and-do-nothing time.
