Gulf Shores, AL
The emerald waters and white-sand beaches of Alabama’s coastline make it a prime location to park a beach chair during Spring
Break. Cruises, like those offered by Sailaway Charters, explore the shores and nearby inlets, and there’s a good chance of seeing a family of dolphins surfing the boat’s wake.
There’s no need to wipe sand off your feet to try the fresh oysters at King Neptune’s Seafood or wander down the boardwalk at The Wharf.
The beach is the star of Gulf Shores, so aim to stay only a few steps away from the warm sand. Plenty of vacation rental companies serve the area, and companies like Flip Flop Vacations and Young’s Suncoast provide a variety of sizes and types of condos, villas, and houses.
