Just west of our Orange Beach vacation rentals you will discover the white sand beaches of Gulf Shores. This community of Coastal Alabama offers the same emerald waters and scenic views you have come to expect from the Gulf Coast, as well as terrific attractions, water sports and more.
Before the completion of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway in 1937, Gulf Shores was a mostly unknown area of wetlands and inaccessible beachfront. Once access to the area was improved, the spectacular beauty of the beach was uncovered. The first hotel opened in the 1940’s and visitors have been staying, playing and relaxing here ever since.
Fort Morgan has a long history and played a major part in making Alabama, and our country, what it is today. The fort was active during four major wars, including the Civil War, and it is best known for the role it played during the Battle of Mobile Bay. Today, the fort is simply a historic attraction and one we recommend visiting when you stay in Gulf Shores or at the lovely Beach Club condos located along the shore of the Gulf of Mexico.
