  • Cozy, Welcoming Home for a Perfect Getaway!

    "My husband, myself, and our little pooch spent Thanksgiving week at Yellowfin. It is a beautiful home with plenty of room! The home has spacious and well decorated bedrooms, a cozy living room to relax in, and a kitchen with all the necessities. We were able to buy groceries and make dinner at the house each night. I brought things from home (pans, serving spoons, etc.) only to realize the house already had them! What a nice surprise! The beach is a super short drive away. It was our first time to Orange Beach and we can't wait to come back during the warmer months! The owner was extremely helpful and nice while planning our trip. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back to Yellowfin in the future!"

  • Beautiful Bama!

    "Loved the Lighthouse condo! Awesome beachfront local! Great access to biking and hiking in gulf shores star park! Sugary clean beach, nice indoor pool and outdoor pools and hot tubs. Condo was very clean and spacious, very comfy beds, and gorgeous views of the gulf from the balcony. Would recommend to friends, and hope to return soon ourselves! Tips for future renters, bring your own beach towels, toilet paper, and stuff for kitchen (dish towels, soap, plastic wrap, spices, etc.). The Hangout has delicious wings and the gulf shores zoo is great fun, our daughters got to play with baby lemurs and baby kangaroos, so fun!"

  • great location

    "We spent the month of Jan. in this little treasure! Very comfortable home away from home. Exactly as pictured. We were there when it got a bit cold and the furnace works great! The area is within walking distance to restaurants, a new dollar general, souvenir shopping and the beautiful beach! There are great walking and biking trails all over. The area also caters to the snowbirds, you can stay as busy as you want with activities such as your state club, potlucks, concerts, bingo, area bus trips, snowbird food specials, classes and more! Randy and Lisa are detail people and if there is a problem they are on it! Phone calls, texts and emails are answered promptly and solutions just as fast! Very happy with the area and condo."

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.
