My family is planning a vacation for the week of September 21 this year. We woud love to come to Gulf Shores. We have some specific needs/wants in a house and are having trouble finding anything that will work. I was hoping someone would have some suggestions. We are looking for a Gulf front home with no less than 4 bedrooms. We would like the house to be pet friendly and have a pool and to pay no more than $3800, if possible. Does anyone have any suggestions on where we could find this? We are hoping to not have to go to another destination. Thank you!!
I am going to Gulf Shores on March 30th for my mom's wedding. It will be my 20 month old's first beach trip. Will it be warm enough to swim?
Would like to cook in, and am looking for the best place to purchase fresh seafood. Is Blalock's good?
What restaurants do Gulf Shores locals enjoy when they want to get away from the crowd?
We are considering spending a week in Gulf Shores for spring break and are wanting to know what kind of party scene it has at that time. Would a group of college students want to spend their spring break there?
My wife & I are taking our daughters the Gulf shores in August. They are 11 & 8. They are interested in trying fishing, but I don't want to spend a ton of money to charter a boat, and I don't have any equipment myself. Is there a fishing pier anywhere close? Or maybe a short fishing excursion on a boat we don't have all to ourselves? Also, please provide your restaurant recommendations for a good burger place, a steakhouse, and an italian restaurant. Thanks!
Ok so here's the deal: A group of us are going to be in Gulf Shores in about a week. We're staying at the Boardwalk. We're going to end up being in 3 cars. My friends are worried about parking. I believe they've been told that Boardwalk only allots 2 parking spots. Any help?
Im suppose to be staying to Crystal Towers in about 10 days and was wondering how the beaches where looking? How is the smell?? and should I book a vacation somewhere else??
I have just heard from a friend who got back that the Jellyfish and seaweed were terrible. Is this true? We are headed to Fort Morgan the first week of August for our first trip to the beach and don't want the kids getting stung. Also any suggestions of things to do and see.
Our family is headed to Gulf Shores this summer for our first beach vacation. As a child, I remember crabbing on our trips to Florida, taking the crabs back to the condo and having a wonderful meal. Is there anywhere to do this in Gulf Shores?
We are considering spending a week this summer in Gulf Shores and was wanting to know the quality of shelling in the area. We normally go to Marco Island Fl where the shelling is excellent. Any input???
We're on our way to Gulf Shores for spring break with our two gradeschool boys. What's the weather like in mid-March? Will it be warm enough to swim? (I'm up in Iowa shivering in the snow and it's hard to imagine being on a beach right now.) Also, what's going on there in the next few weeks? What should we be sure to do, where should we be sure to eat? We're very interested in good local food. How's the zoo? Any other travel advice would be appreciated--we want to be sure to get the most out of our visit (which will of course include plenty of beach time). Eve
We will be visiting the Gulf Shore area in May of `07. We have never been there before. I have been looking through the VRBO website and am thinking about booking a room for the two of us at "Golf Shores Surf & Racquet Club" or "Golf Shores Plantation". Does anyone have any input on these properties? Would you recommend we stay in Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan or somewhere else? We don't really swim or sun bathe, but we want a place where we can play golf, play shuffleboard and site see. Also, what kind of weather can we expect in mid-May? I welcome all suggestions. Thank you!!
My fiance and I are getting married September 30, 2006. He is a huge nascar and for part of our honeymoon, we are going to Talladega Superspeedway for the truck race on 10/7/06 and the cup race on 10/8/06... Since we are already gonna be in AL, we are talking about heading down to Gulf Shores / Mobile. My question is to how everything has been rebuilt since Hurricane Katrina... Are there still things to do and is the beach nice or is it still very evident that a hurricane came through a year ago? Also, if you could give advice as to what might be good tourist attractions especially for newlyweds that would be great, as well as good hotels... Thank you in advance for responding to my question... Looking forward to hearing what you have to say....
Thinking of driving fown for it this year? Has anyone ever attended it? Is it fun? Good seafood?
