  • Best vacation we have ever had!

    "This was my first time ever renting through vrbo. It was so easy to use the book it now option.The owners were great to rent from and really do a great job getting back to you quickly as well as taking care of any needs you may have. This condo is stocked exceptionally well. The spice rack came in handy when the kids wanted french toast instead of pancakes. Also we used a little flour to make graveyard when we were trying to use up the last of the biscuits. This may not be a big deal to most but when you have a large family anything that saves you a little money is a huge deal! We had two adults and six kids and had an amazing time. The location of Fort Morgan is exceptional but not too secluded. There is many things to do in the area for families. I had planned many things to do during the week we stayed there but we liked the resort so much we hardly ever left. They should do a few updates to the resort property like new basketball nets and rims. But the pools are very accommodating and beautiful the grounds are very well kept. The ocean is steps away and amazingly beautiful sunset. Our condo was near the largest pool and a view of the beach. They had a spice rack and well stocked kitchen with nice big pots and pans so cooking for my large family was easy to do with what was provided. There were tons of beach toys for us to use while there. We crab hunted at night with the kids. My husband and I sneaked out to the beach by ourselves a couple of nights. We were the only people on the beach! We had wonderful weather for the last week of September. It was warm and mostly sunny all week even though the forecast said thunderstorms all week. The waves were decent size. We checked groupon for deals in the area before vacation and we're able to take a fantastic sunset cruise to watch dolphins. We saw a ton of them! We also took a ferry ride over to dauphin island and went to the estuarium which was well worth going to. We homeschool and were able to get a school rate . Although lunch on the island was not very good and was incredibly high for lunch for a family of 8 anyway. I recommend packing a lunch and eating at Fort gains by the ocean instead and going back to fort morgan for ice cream later ( there isn't ice cream parlors on the island someone needs to open one and will surely make some money!) We loved every minute of our vacation! We are debating now whether we want to go here every year! The bikes were great to use as well the other sports eq"

  • Enamored and completely satisfied!

    "Our family had planned a week in Gulf Shores after a long and hectic spring and summer. We were looking for something right on the beach, close to restaurants and activities but somewhat secluded and calm and not hemmed in by a lot of other buildings. Royal Palms did not disappoint in its location as the last building beachside before a state park w/pier! The facilities were extremely well kept and the views from our balcony at #1207 were spectacular! The contact with the owner was seamless, helpful, friendly and generous whether by email or phone. The condo was well appointed with all the amenities one would desire. We couldn't have asked for a better experience with them. We would return in a heartbeat because of the location (immediate beach access, beautiful views, proximity to all necessities, impeccable upkeep, peaceful spaces) and due to our superb experience with the owner! The memories our kids made prompted them to rate this one of their top vacations ever!"

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.

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.

In addition, Bel Air Mall is home to a quaint Venetian carousel and many restaurants when you need to take a break and refuel.

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.
