Fun Things Going On In Gulf Shores

We are so proud of Gulf Shores and hope it is your favorite place just like it is ours!  Gulf Shores is fortunate to have nabbed one of fifteen finalist slots in Budget Travel’s America’s Coolest Small Town Contest! We’d love to win, of course, and that means we’ll need people to vote so the whole country knows about our cool destination. Your role couldn’t be more simple – vote daily and include this link ( in your communications via social media channels, and help push us to #1. Contest ends Feb. 15.

Part of why Gulf Shores is our favorite place is because our environment is important to everyone who lives and works here.  One of our newest adventures in this area is An Artificial Reef!   As you may have seen or heard via The Weather Channel’s video clips and promotions, the sinking of the Lulu by our local Reef Wranglers is set to air Feb 12th at 8 pm. Lulu’s is planning a viewing party that evening – please call them if you would like more details.  I know we are planning to watch and can’t wait to see our new reef grow.

Hey everyone. It is almost 7 on Thursday, June 3rd. I just got back from the beach in the dunes Community on Ft. Morgan. this Beach is about 2 miles from the end of the island by sand and a mile on the street. I got a report that we had tar balls on the beach. I wanted you to see what these are. However when i got down there, I couldn’t find any. The reports I got said they were from the size of a dime to the size of a Hershey Bar. I did take a couple of videos of lots of people on the beach and in the water, and of the army of workers that came to clean up these tar balls. From what we understand the majority of them were on the end of the island. We saw NO OIL!!!!! I will post first thing in the morning, about 7.
