If you've never done it, you're missing out on some of the most scenic and historic sites in the southeast. You may have come to Gulf Shores & Orange Beach for the white-sand beaches, but there is much more to experience while you're here. The Alabama Coastal Connection Scenic Byway is a great way to explore the road less traveled and learn about some of the area's best-kept secrets and best-known treasures. If you'd like suggestions, the Alabama Coastal Connection offers four itineraries where you'll discover the water, ways and wildlife of the Alabama Gulf Coast.
