Fort Morgan has a long naval history

Perched at the end of a long spit of land jutting out into the Gulf of Mexico, Fort Morgan has a long U.S. Naval history and has seen plenty of action, most notably the Battle of Mobile Bay in 1864. Fast-forward to today and fortunately the area's wartime days are over. Instead of soldiers kitted out in full garb, you'll more likely see vacationers in shorts and flip-flops basking on the peninsula's sun-drenched beaches, or crossing the bay on boats. It's also a surprisingly good spot for migratory birds, turtles and other wildlife species. It's all waiting at your Fort Morgan vacation rental.

Test your racing skills in Fort Morgan

If you're thinking of an activity-laden vacation with the little ones, Fort Morgan has got you covered. On and off the peninsula, there is a ton of things to keep them occupied. You know what they say, happy kids, happy parents. Within a short drive of your Fort Morgan vacation rental, you can take them to race around the go-kart tracks, let them scamper around on the rope courses, or practice their putting skills on the mini-golf course. They won't say no to a day at Waterville USA either, where they can run amok on the wave pools and slides.

Hop on the Mobile Bay Ferry from Fort Morgan

More family fun can be found in the nearby attractions. If you can manage to nab one of the Fort Morgan vacation rentals that line the peninsula, you can hop on the Mobile Bay Ferry and discover the spot where Admiral Farragut shouted his famous order, "damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead". Afterwards, you could take them to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo where they can feed the donkeys and deer, or on one of the 24 gondolas which hang from the old-fashioned Ferris Wheel soaring 100 feet over Orange Beach.

Spring and fall are the best time to visit Fort Morgan

While the summer break months are the busiest, it can get a little crowded along the peninsula. Your best bet is to score a Fort Morgan vacation rental in spring or fall. Between March and May, or September and October, the prices on rentals drop, the beaches are far less crowded and the climate is more comfortable. If you're planning to swing your clubs on the golf courses, or go hiking along the coast, you'll be pleased you booked in the slightly cooler months. The winters tend to be milder here than the rest of the US and the rental prices drop to rock-bottom.

Experience nature at Fort Morgan

Nature lovers won't be disappointed when they stay in a Fort Morgan vacation rental. The Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge is made up of several ecosystems, from dunes to wetlands, which provide habitats for plenty of species, including turtles which haul themselves onto the beach to nest. Bird watchers will be particularly taken by Fort Morgan - the peninsula lies on the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail and includes more than 350 recorded bird species. If you've brought your fishing rod, you can cast into the bay from the peninsula's banks, then sit back and wait to land a big one.
