3. Explore Historic Fort Morgan
Discover Fort Morgan’s pivotal role in the Civil War Battle of Mobile Bay. The kids will enjoy climbing to the top of the ramparts and exploring every nook and cranny below. You could also hop a ride on the Mobile Bay Ferry over to Dauphin Island. You’ll see some wildlife and lots of birds, and you just never know what else.
4. Plan ahead
Start planning your action-packed Alabama beach holiday now by ordering or downloading a vacation guide. Be sure to check out our deals page to catch a bargain on fresh Gulf seafood, attractions and accommodations on throughout Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Enlist the help of a concierge service such as The Beach Moms to do grocery shopping in advance of your arrival—you’ll be on the beach much faster if you don’t have to visit the grocery store first thing. If golf is on your radar, be sure to pre-book your tee times. Holidays are usually busier on the greens and throughout the beach.
