There is lot's to see and do in addition to the beach. I almost don't know where to start. If the first entry doesn't interest you, please keep reading. There is something for everyone.

It is an easy drive to the historic site at Fort Morgan. Fort Morgan and Fort Gaines guarded the entrance to Mobile bay and are preserved as National Parks. From there take the ferry to Dauphin Island and visit the Estuarium. It tells the story of the watershed that makes up Mobile bay and our part of the the Gulf Coast. It is not a big fancy aquarium, but really a good way to understand the ecology of the area. On a pretty day the ferry trip is almost the best part. It is a short ride and you see the bay and some of the oil rigs.

The charming town of Fairhope, Mobile Bay, Pensacola and the city of Mobile are all less than 2 hours away. Alabamians say that 'Fairhope is special' and they are right. It is stepping back to another time. Be sure to take a walk out on the pier, the view is stunning. Shopping in Fairhope is fun and unique, no chain stores in the downtown area but lots of art, crafts, and high end fashion.

The Naval Air Museum is very interesting, makes you proud of our Navy men and women. It is about 45 minutes away on the west side of Pensacola.

On the island you might be interested in Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, the Wharf entertainment district and Waterville water park.

Bring your bikes and ride in Gulf Shores state park. You could also rent bikes if you like. The park is over 600 acres of trails, lakes and maritime forest as well as a golf course and 2.5 miles of gulf beach.

If you are a shopper, Tanger Outlets is a quick trip to Foley. The Wharf has boutique type shopping and entertainment.

The USS Alabama is docked at Mobile bay. It is a fun, interactive experience especially for vets and kids.

Bellingrath Gardens are world famous and beautiful at any time of the year. The house is also open for tours. It was the home of Mr and Mrs Bellingrath. He was the local Coca Cola bottler and she bought many things brought to her from all over the Gulf coast during the Great Depression. To Mrs Belligrath's credit she never took advantage of the families who needed to sell their treasures, she always paid a fair price. The water views from the morning room is beautiful. Bellingrath is an easy day trip and well worth your time.

The Gulf Shores zoo is small but really cute. They usually have some sort of "animal experience". Call the zoo hours or to make reservations.

Have fun!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We have family who live in Gulf Shores and having the condo helps us spend time with them. We have an active lifestyle in Atlanta but love the people here on the island most. I am a native of Atlanta, now living in one of the northern suburbs. I am a grandmother, gardener, community volunteer and a happy beach fan. My mom is 90 and enjoys the great balcony view and easily accessibility of the condo.

Why the Owner Chose Orange Beach, AL, USA:
The View!!! It is so perfect. The building is close to the waterline and the balconies have an unobstructed view all the way from Alabama point to Gulf Shores. We also needed a easy care flat, no steps. The condo has a good size balcony, pleasant decor and is completely equipped.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Great location. Very close to shopping and restaurants. Easy access to hwy 161, Orange Beach, Perdido, Canal road and the Wharf. Access to the state park is nearby for walkers and bike riders.
