Great for Family Vacations ! : What first attracted us to the Gulf Shores area 22 years ago, was the fact that it is very family oriented. Besides swimming, surfing, skim boarding, playing ball and frisbee, collecting shells, and building sand castles on the beach, there are many other activities in the area to be enjoyed by children. Places to visit and things to do include the zoo, water and amusement parks, go-kart tracks, numerous putt-putt golf courses, dolphin cruises, and parasailing. There are also forts to visit, bike trails to ride, and bird sanctuaries, wildlife refuges, and estuaries to explore. Of course there is always fishing and finding those little sand crabs after dark. Our grandchildren like going to the large shaded Gulf Shores playground located near the ball fields and rec center. We hope that you will enjoy 'Pleasure Island' as much as we do.
Shopping: Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley is just 20 minutes away and is good to visit on a rainy day or for Senior Discounts on Tuesdays. Of course, there is always Wal-Mart and Target for your everyday needs as well as numerous grocery stores, restaurants, and souvenir shops in the immediate Gulf Shores area.
