  • We Will Return!!

    "We spent a week here and had a wonderful time in our cottage. It was so clean, well-equipped with linens, towels, and kitchen utensils, that made the stay so pleasant. GS Parkway is less than 10 minutes away with all the shops, restaurants, the beach, and all the sights. Phil and Toni were awesome hosts and were so helpful. When we return to GS, we will stay here!!!"

  • Great stay at Rolf's Retreat!!!

    "We had a lovely stay in this charming beach house with our family. Everything was as pictured on the website, and we liked the colorful beachy decor. The kitchen was well fitted out with everything we needed. It was great to be able to watch Netflix on the huge TV in the living room. The kids loved the bunk bedroom and we enjoyed the master suite with the amazing view of the gulf. We spent most of our time on the gigantic deck overlooking the ocean. Part of the deck is covered which is great for babies and small kids. We could watch the kids from the deck while they played in the sand right in front. We will definitely return to Rolf's Retreat on our next visit. We've been coming to Gulf Shores for years and are so happy we found this great house! PS if you want a great lunch spot, try Sea N Suds (their gumbo our fave)."

  • Tidewater Condo

    "This was our first trip to Orange Beach and everything was great. The condo was very nice, at a great location and spotless. Andy was great to work with and he provided excellent information on the area and seemed to really care that we had a great experience. We would not have changed a thing....and we will be back."

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.

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.

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.
