39th Annual Gulf Shores Shrimp Festival Oct. 7-10

Fall is officially here!!!!! We have some great happenings at the beach this fall, including the 39th Annual National Shrimp Festival.  This year it is the weekend of October 7th thru Sunday the 10th.  If you have never been here for the Shrimp Festival, it is certainly an event not to miss.  Great food, that ranges from seafood to typical fair food, that brings back memories of those childhood visits to the state fair. 

 The food is not the only reason to attend however, there are great vendors and you can purchase beach inspired clothes, jewelery, and artwork of any scale!  Some of my favorite pieces are the giant metal sculptures of life size sea creatures, and the resin cartoonish ones that bring a smile to everyone’s face.  Don’t forget about the musical performances each day you have choices of two different stages to listen to music continously through out the festival.  The kids are not left out at shrimp festival.  There is a family friendly sand sculpture contest, and a Children Activity Village, for your little ones to create their own masterpiece!  A Chef’s Challenge is something you don’t want to miss as the top five finalists consists of some of the best chef’s in our area showcasing their talents in the kitchen to create new dining delights for visitors to our area. 

We have some great specials for you come for a couple of days or a long weekend to enjoy the fun and events of Shrimp Festival, and then the piece and quiet of Ft. Morgan, only 20 minutes from the festival shuttles!  Prices start as low as $199.00 for 2 nights!  Give us a call today!!!!

Ocean’s Resturant opening soon….

I mentioned not long ago that our favorite pizza place in Ft. Morgan is opening a restaurant.  Ocean’s will be opening in January, the tentative date is the 4th!  We are so excited that our friends dream is finally happening.  I stopped by the restaurant yesterday to see how things were progressing at the restaurant.  Our friends and Becky our Office Manager were finalizing the menu and doing some final touches to the interior. 

The warm coral colors and large fish tank screen set the tone for this family restaurant that boasts local seafood, and hand cut steaks and all sorts of savory sides and tempting desserts.  For those of you who are coffee connoisseurs they will have an outstanding variety of speciality coffees.  Ocean’s also boasts a fun  bartender with lots of experience, award winning Chef and live music. 

The schedule is not completely set as of yet but they did want me to tell you about some of the specials.  Starting this winter Monday is Prime Rib Night!     Brent Burns will be entertaining Tuesday nights when Ocean’s will be serving “All You Can Eat Shrimp.”  Bring your condo key for a Free,  Fried Pickle Appetizer when you show your Sunset Properties key tag.  We will be sure to tell you about the current specials as they come along.   Don’t miss this great new addition to our dining choices in the Fort Morgan Area.

The Best Pizza in Ft. Morgan

Imagine it you get in after a long day of traveling to your beach vacation.  everyone is tired and hungry and the last thing you want to do is go to the store 20 minutes away and then come back and cook.  Pizza would be perfect but you are staying at the end of the world, in Ft. Morgan!!! Don’t worry there is amazing pizza just minutes away and they will deliver!!!  Call Ocean’s Pizza, 540-star, from your local phone.  The pizza is hand made with the best ingredients. 

 Oceans, takes pride in their pizza creations and they truly are artists at baking them.  All pizzas are made with hand tossed crusts, and they have a huge variety of toppings.  Everyone will find something they love from vegertiarians to meat lovers.  The pasta meals are enough to feed a small family and just as wonderful as the pizzas.  Great salad choices,  yummy appetizers, and hot sandwiches should be sampled too.  The bacon wrapped sea scapllops are a local favorite, along with the laguna pizza, or Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo.  Save room for dessert too, Cheese cake and Key Lime Pie are always on the menu.

  I personally have heard countless people say “this is the best pizza I have ever had, or I would have skipped the grocery store if I had known about this at the beginning of the week.”  As a rental company we take it it very seriously when people thank us for telling them about the Pizza Place.  Don’t miss out on Oceans Pizza while you are visiting Ft.
