  • Best Time Ever

    "We had all of our family in this wonderful condo. Beaches were beautiful and not crowded. The owner had beach chairs and children's toys for our use. The furniture was very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals for the family. All of this added up to a wonderful experience."

  • Great House

    "We stayed for the first week of 2015 and the house is lovely. The pictures don't show much so I will elaborate. The master bedroom is pretty large and roomy. The bed is comfortable. There was a TV in the bedroom. There are entrances to the large deck via the Master Bedroom and the living room. The neighborhood is quite also. Both bathrooms are well appointed. The kitchen had all of the equipment that we needed and more. I cooked most mornings we were there. We ate at the two local hangouts, Sassy Bass and The Pines. Both were great. The Pines is more affordable but The Sassy Bass was delicious also. Both are well worth it and close by. The weather was quite windy but I managed to get out and walk to the beach twice a day. The beach here is great. It is not that wide (it appears very natural) and it is dog friendly (our reason for choosing Fort Morgan in the first place). We would definitely stay here our next trip if she wasn't already booked. She keeps a full calender it seems so if it is open you need to grab it. The beach was a short walk (about 5 minutes). My husband doesn't really walk that much (due to health reasons) so we did drive to Cortez St to a public beach down the rode that you park at once for him to go out on the beach. I love Fort Morgan for the solitude and lack of high rise condos."

  • Private and Secure Great Beach, Pool and Facility

    "This was our second trip to the Gulf. Second time at plantation. This property fit our needs perfectly. Owners are great. We were there after labor day and it was like having the facility and beach to ourselves. Away from the strip but a scenic short drive to get there. Booked this unit for this fall. Would and have recommended to others. One day drive from Indianapolis (10 Hours)"

Known as the "Heart of Dixie," Alabama borders Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi and Florida. Though the capital of Alabama is Montgomery, the most populated city is Birmingham and the oldest city is Mobile, which was founded by French colonists.

For anyone looking to escape cold, wet winters, the climate in Alabama ranges from mild to hot with summer temperatures climbing to 100 degrees - perfect for a warm getaway. Winters are less harsh here, with temperatures ranging from 30 to 60 degrees.

History buffs will enjoy exploring any of the state’s 36 national historic landmarks and more than 1,200 locations that are part of the National Register of Historic Places. All of Alabama is steeped in rich and interesting facts from its beginning up until the present time.

The museum is home to more than 1,500 permanent pieces relating to space exploration. The U.S. Space & Rocket Center also offers two camp programs where people can stay on-site and learn more about space with the U.S. Space Camp or aviation with the Aviation Challenge. Along with displays, you can also check out the Spacedome Theater, Rocket Park and Education Training Center that houses NASA’s Educator Resource Center.

Birmingham Zoo and Montgomery Zoo: Animal lovers are sure to enjoy a trip to either zoo in Birmingham or Montgomery, or maybe even both! The Birmingham Zoo is home to about 800 different animals of more than 200 species. It’s also a force in elephant conservation, featuring a Trails of Africa exhibit. Along with the elephants, you can visit with rhinos, giraffes, birds and other creatures. The Montgomery Zoo allows visitors to take a trip to South America, Asia and other countries without ever leaving Alabama. With more than 500 animals, there’s plenty to see here, including elephants, penguins, zebras and more.

USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park: One of the country’s most unique military attractions, The USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park provides an exciting experience for the whole family. Located on the western shore of Mobile Bay, the park features a collection of wartime aircraft and ships. The USS Alabama is a national historic landmark and a great way to pay respects to soldiers who have fallen in the past.

Bryant-Denny Stadium: In Tuscaloosa, you’ll find the home of the University of Alabama and Bryant-Denny Stadium. Originally the football shrine was built to honor the university’s first president, it was amended later to also honor the famous Alabama football coach Paul “Bear” Bryant. Alabama is also home to one of the United States’ oldest college rivalries between Auburn University and the University of Alabama. If you visit during football season, taking in a game between the Crimson Tide and the Tigers is sure to be entertaining both on and off the field.

Huntsville Botanical Garden: While visiting Huntsville, be sure to stop at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. Free and open year-round, it’s home to a butterfly house as well as a variety of gardens, including aquatic, wildflower, fern, rose and others. Spend the day meandering through each space and savor the natural beauty everywhere you look.

Featuring more than 130 stores, there no doubt you can find exactly what you’re looking for while visiting Alabama at local shops or bigger name stores. In addition, Bel Air Mall is home to a quaint Venetian carousel and many restaurants when you need to take a break and refuel.

Wintzell’s Oyster House: For a true Southern seafood meal, visit Mobile’s historic landmark, Wintzell’s Oyster House. It’s been open for more than 75 years and has grown and expanded from a six-stool oyster bar to the landmark it is now.

Mike and Ed’s BBQ: For some Southern-style barbecue, visit Auburn’s Mike and Ed’s BBQ which dishes up some of the tastiest pulled pork and home cooking in the state. There's no excuse for leaving hungry here - the portions are big and chances are you will clean your plate.
