  • Escape from Michigan winter

    "Wonderful accommodations -- the unit is spacious and very well-equipped, the beds are comfortable, and the linens are plentiful. The view from the 16th floor is outstanding. We never tired of watching the pelicans glide by close enough to touch and the sunrises were spectacular. The building facilities are first-class, well-maintained, and clean. Great restaurants, miles of walkable beach, shopping, art center (take the glass class!), Gulf State Park (don't miss the Segway tour) -- a great vacation... and one I plan to repeat!"

  • PERFECT All-Around!

    "First of all, I chose this condo due to it's 5-star rating and compliments of doing business with the owner. Let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed. For starters, doing business with the owner was a pleasure. He is quick to respond, professional yet friendly, and an all-around nice person ready to answer any questions you might have. The condo itself was clean, and just as described in the listing. A short walk to the beach, well-priced, and nicely upgraded. Kids were glad to have their own room and bathroom, the kitchen comes fully stocked with useful dishes, and everything was in good working order. The neighbors (many owners themselves) were very nice and approachable as well. The area is a great mix of seclusion, but a short drive to whatever you need. We will be coming back as soon as possible. I would highly recommend this property, and the owner- as I cannot say enough- and I'm probably missing SEVERAL high points. The pools and hot tubs were a nice option on the cooler/winder days on the beach- although we only had one of those out of an entire week. Thank you for an awesome, relaxing family vacation!!!! (The kids want to add that they food in the area is AWESOME!)"

  • Wonderful Family Get Away

    "The house was booked for our family to relax and unwind after Christmas. It was everything we wanted. The house was very clean. The deck and grill were spotless. We enjoyed grilling on the deck and cooking s'mores in the fire pit. The kayaks would have been awesome had the weather been more pleasant. The house has 2 sets of washer and dryers. The washer and dryer unit upstairs was very nice. The tub in the bathroom upstairs was not what we expected, but the shower was awesome. The owner was very pleasant and very helpful. He responded immediately each time I had a question. The cost was very efficient for the size of the house. Will definitely stay again."

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.
