  • Exceptional weekend at a beautiful condo

    "Our weekend stay at this condo was awesome! The condo was very clean and beautifully decorated. The view to the ocean and pool were amazing. Very easy access to parking was a huge benefit. An unfortunate incident happened, my wife left her purse upon checkout so when we realized it I contacted the owner and within minutes she contacted the cleaning company (Paradise Services) and they had already found the purse and sealed it in a bag and shipped it overnight to my wife. Kudos to all for their honesty!!!"

  • Wonderful memories!

    "This was our first family vacation to Gulf Shores and we had been counting the days to get out of the cold. We arrived to a beautiful facility on a gorgeous day. Every staff member we ran into either on the grounds or in Connections, was extremely friendly. Upon getting to building four----super easy with parking and carts to help you unpack, we were able to get right into our condo. The Boatman's have a beautiful location, direct center view of the ocean; the condo is very nicely appointed as well. Everything was there when we needed it. Our daughters ages 8 and 5 enjoyed having their own bathroom and corner of the condo for themselves. The pools were excellent and well kept. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately, we hit some rough patches with two of our four coming down with a nasty cold and one getting 2nd degree sunburn on hands and arms but we still had a nice time with perfect 82 degree weather and sun until the day we left. Thank you for letting us share in your beautiful paradise!"

  • WE AGREE WITH ALL THE ABOVE

    "We have rented thru VRBO for 10 years and must say, the above reviews cover all we could say about John and Debbie's rental home. From location and condition to layout and attentiveness...every thing was terrific. Our only disappointment was that we could not stay longer. bnj"

  • Wonderful!

    "The Wharf is an excellent place to stay. I don't like the beach, but the pool at the Wharf is very relaxing, and there is sand there for the children. Good shopping and food, also. Would love to stay in the this condo again. Very clean, up to date amenities, good views from the balcony."

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.

Things to Do in Alabama

U.S. Space & Rocket Center: When visiting Huntsville, be sure to stop by the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, a museum showcasing achievements, rockets and artifacts from the United States’ space program. 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

Bel Air Mall: Located in Mobile, Bel Air Mall is a major attraction for excited shoppers. 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.
