Gulf Shores is a coastal town, located in Baldwin County, Alabama on the Gulf of Mexico. It is home to a constantly changing population. Summer months generate a surge of tourists estimated in the hundreds of thousands. In the winter months, the beach front town is visited by a large population known as “snowbirds.” Snowbirds visit Gulf Shores for as many as three to five months during the winter and spring, and then return to their primary residences in northern states for the remainder of the year.

The broad Gulf Front Public Beach features dozens of restaurants, hotels, motels, vacation rental condominiums as well as beach house rentals available for any size group. The Jewel of the Alabama State Park System is the “Alabama Gulf State Park.” The 6,000+ acre park features 2 miles of beach front and a new beach pavilion, a new fishing pier, and is located on the Eastern edge of Gulf Shores.
The historic “Fort Morgan” is located on the western tip of the Fort Morgan peninsula west of Gulf Shores. During the season you can take the auto ferry from Fort Morgan to Dauphin Island and continue to Bellingrath Gardens, Mobile, and the Mississippi Coast Casinos and New Orleans LA.
