  • 4/13/15

    "I felt this condo was appropriately priced and a good value. It was an easy walk to the beach which we did at 2-3 times daily. The master bed was very squeaky with every turn during the night and not especially comfortable but not awful. The sheets did not fit well and had to be adjusted every morning. The upstairs twin beds were very hard and not pleasant for our teenage daughter but might be fine for younger children. The kitchen is well stocked and the unit is clean. When we arrived and had difficulty getting the DISH to connect, I called the owner and it was immediately fixed. We could not get the DVD player to work in the living room but were able to hook it up to the master TV. The condo was quiet with very little noise from the main road."

  • Perfect Vacation!

    "My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we absolutely loved the location and Gulf Shores Plantation!!! It had a wonderful friendly and family oriented atmosphere. We had everything that we needed inside the condo, and renting from Nancy was a breeze! We went to the beach every day, and even during peak season we were able to walk down the beach just a little bit and basically be off to ourselves. We drove into town everyday, but the drive is not bad at all especially considering that your are getting away from the main strip beach scene. We plan to visit again and we have raved about this area to our family and friends. We also recommend visiting Fort Morgan just down the road and Lambert's is most certainly worth the wait! Eat a roll for us!"

  • just AWESOME

    "We (4 college buddies) just spent the most amazing time at My Blue Heaven. It was perfect!!! 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths and plenty of room. The view from the living room is un describable!! You can throw open the door and watch the waves and listen to the ocean or you can sit on the deck (furniture provided) and watch the sun rise and the sun set. The kitchen had everything you needed, including a washer and dryer. WiFi was nice so you could send all your daily pictures to your jealous friends back home. TV in every room with plenty of channels. The owner was assessable before and during the trip. We plan on returning next year and the next and the next. It will definitely be an annual affair."

Alabama Travel Tips

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.

Shopping and Dining in Alabama

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.
