When heading south, located just before the Intracoastal Waterway bridge is the new Gulf Shores Welcome Center at 3459 Gulf Shores Parkway.
After breaking ground in October 2014, the new hospitality center opened its doors in April. Visitors are greeted by a highly visible digital sign near the highway, as well as the iconic dolphin fountain where the young and young-at-heart can make a wish for a beach vacation made in paradise. You’ll find that the 5,400 square feet of handicapped-accessible space includes a spacious lobby, conference room and public restrooms. It’s the perfect location to stop and stretch your legs.
Gather vacation inspiration and browse brochures for Gulf Shores and Orange Beach restaurants, attractions and activities. Video displays will introduce visitors to what awaits them during their vacation, from dining to attractions and relaxing on the beach. While the building is new, you’ll still be greeted by the familiar faces and knowledgeable staff you’ve gotten to know over the years during your annual vacations on Alabama’s beaches.
