You don’t stay around for 55 years unless you’ve got something special to offer your guests. After you visit the Flora-Bama, you’ll see what we mean! Keep in mind, we have properties located just a few short minutes from this establishment.
#4 The Hangout
Serving specialty drinks and a menu all their own, The Hangout in Gulf Shores is so much more than just a bar. Home of the World Famous Hangout Music Festival, The Hangout is located right off the public beach facing The Gulf of Mexico in the heart of Gulf Shores. What better way is there to end a great day of shopping, fishing, or beach strolling than to bring your old friends or meet some new ones at The Hangout?
#5 Bills by the Beach
After a long day of fishing, you must visit Bills by the Beach where they will cook your catch as you listen to live music on the open air deck. West Beach Boulevard never sounded or tasted so good! If you didn’t have much luck catching your own supper, don’t worry. Bills by the Beach has a menu that is second to none. Come hungry for the cuisine and stay for the tunes!
From fishing and shopping and sunning all day, to relaxing and eating some great local seafood and listening to some fabulous music all evening, we hope you enjoy Island Life as much as we do. Remember its always the right time to have a good time when you’re living on Island Time!
