Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

Adventure, fun, relaxation…you’ll find it all on Alabama’s white-sand beaches. For years, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach remained a little-known vacation treasure, but more and more families are discovering the 32 miles of soft sand and clear waters that lace the edges of Alabama’s southern border to the Gulf of Mexico. With attractions like zip lines, championship golf and water sports, travelers are escaping to the beach for their annual vacations and weekend getaways.
