  • Perfect Family Getaway

    "We loved our stay in this condo. We think it is the perfect location for staying at the beach, yet it is still close to restaurants and shops (definitely within walking distance). Condo is very close to the popular "Hangout" and "Sea N Suds" restaurants. A pier for fishing, a state park, and the GREAT "Bahama Bob's" restaurant are also within LONG walking distance or a short drive. The condo is very clean and tastefully decorated. The condo has a great view of the beach, and the balcony has plenty of chairs for guests to sit and enjoy breakfast, or watch the sunset and stars after a day at the beach. We also like that the condo's kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, and there's a full size washer and dryer to use. This was our second stay in the condo, and it is the perfect size for 2 families of 4. The beach is so nice, because it is much less crowded than the public beach that is about a mile to the west (near Hangout). We love the amenities at San Carlos such as the pool (good for rough surf days) and the gym (but who needs the gym when you can exercise on the beach!) We had one minor problem with the AC in the condo during this stay, but the condo owner was VERY prompt about getting service out to us, and it was repaired within a couple hours of our reporting it to the owner. We definitely love the location of this condo, because we like walking to shops and restaurants. We don't want to spend a lot of time driving once we are in Gulf Shores. Even though you are close to many shops and restaurants at San Carlos, it is still a very relaxing place to stay! We drove to Orange Beach (15 min drive to the east) a few times for a dolphin cruise and to go to restaurants (Florabama, Cosmos, and Cobalt - all great restaurants), and we thought Gulf Shores was a more laid back place to stay. This condo was our first and only choice to stay in Gulf Shores. We plan to rent this condo for many years to come as long as they'll have us!"

  • Tradewinds condo

    "We recently spent the month of December in this wonderful condo. We appreciated that the pantry and kitchen were well-stocked, making our in-house cooking easy! The furnishings are comfortable and pleasant. The condo is clean and the heated pool warm during the winter months. You could not help but enjoy your stay here."

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.

Along with the elephants, you can visit with rhinos, giraffes, birds and other creatures.

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.

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.
