Recent Alabama reviews

  • Enjoy the Gulf

    "We stayed 6 nights and it was great. The owner was extremely accommodating and very nice to work with. The overall condo and complex was better than the description. After "Karen" blew through, water was clear and the dolphins were playing. Will call the owner again for more bookings."

  • Look No Further In Orange Beach/Gulf Shores!

    "The title says it all. This condo is by far the best beach location at which I and my family have ever stayed. Beautifully updated throughout with all of the amenities you need. Excellent location with gorgeous views and tile throughout. The owner described this place perfectly, her love for this property is evident by the way in which it is maintained. We visit the area once a year and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else and neither should you. If I could, I'd give it six stars."

  • Another amazing trip!

    "This is my third trip to Gulf Shores and Richard's condo with my son. The location is perfect and the condo is always in great shape with everything we need for a few days on the beach. I love that we can just walk down a flight of stairs, then just a few steps to the beach. The weather and water could not have been better - food and activities are always great! We saw dolphin each morning (and a few one afternoon), caught (and released) a starfish one night, and found several sand dollars while snorkeling. We love this area and Richard always makes renting and the stay easy and comfortable. We'll keep coming back!"

    "Very nice, clean, comfortable place to stay. We will come again. Beds were do comfy! Kirchen stocked nicely, just needed more garbage bags. Even though it's across from the beach it's not a bad walk or we drove our car one day. The ocean was calm, clear and beautiful! I have never seen it so clear. You could see the hermit crabs on the bottom! We recommend driving into orange beach and eating at The Complete Angler at The Wharf and Tacky Jack's at Happy Harbour marina. We ate outside by the water at both places and really enjoyed it and the seafood was awesome! On the way back to the condo stop at Matt's homemade Icecream in Gulf Shores. Absolutely the BEST icecream ever! We had a great vacation here and wished we could have stayed longer!!"

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.

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.
