This small coastal city is growing in popularity. The Alabama Gulf Coast offers something for everyone. Swimming, sunbathing, surfing, and skim boarding are equally enjoyable on the beaches. Fishing is big there, too. Charter fleets leave every day. The Gulf Shores has a lot of wildlife nature trails. Try a zip line course over the waters of Lake Shelby and get a break from those sugar-white clear sandy beaches. As for nightlife – there is a concert or another kind of music event happening almost every day. The zoo is great and putt-putt golf is always hit.
