I would recommend anyone visiting Gulf Shores to stop by the Gulf Shores Welcome Center and pick up brochures on local attractions, restaurants and lodging.
The ladies in the welcome enter were most helpful with info about places to eat and bike trails",,we also picked up pamphlets on things to do with coupons to.
We stopped in at the visitor center and were greeted warmly and given discount coupons for the local attractions.
They even had coupon sheets for discounts for many, many local attractions - Including 20% off admission for the Space and Rocket Center.
They have coupon books for savings on eating establishments as well as “The Mullet Wrapper”, a newspaper that list day Day happenings plus ads of different stores to shop.
Great info, friendly staff
There are 28 miles of nature trails where you walk or bike and can see: Heron, pelicans, alligators, the endangered gopher tortoise, eagles and their young, a great horned owl and it's baby, lots of Osprey nests,...
What an absolutely lovely place to walk or bike!! We're on vacation with our dog and this was the perfect place to take him.
I am guessing the trails are about 1 1/2 miles Well maintained trails and nice picnic areas.
Worth a visit whether you are looking for a Sunday Mass to attend while on vacation or if you want to view a beautiful historic cathedral in the middle of downtown Mobile.
It is worth taking a few minutes to walk through while visiting Mobile.

A Great college/university consideration!
Beautiful landscaping, extensive varierty of ornamental plants, flowers & trees, vast open spaces, fun gift shop.
Great place to visit and I will be back again.
... stay in one of the ocean front condos we routinely looked from our balcony to and saw vehicles patrolling the beach, workers screening the sand, workers picking up litter and driftwood, and life guards on duty.
Great value, great service, and clean restrooms.
We paired it with a visit to the Selma interpretative center for the Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail and the civil rights park on the opposite side of the river.
Highly recommend checking out the National Park Service site on the Selma business district side of the bridge prior to your walk - brings incredible perspective.
And since it is right across the street from the Civil Rights Institute and Kelly Ingram Park you can visit them all on the same day.
It still operates as a functioning church and can certainly use your donation!

Great lemonade and was recommended by all to visit here while in Auburn for the weekend.
The fresh squeezed lemonade is outstanding!
It has large asphalt camp pads, in a very wooded area, and has full hookups including cable TV--which is very unusual for a state park.
Great to get out downtown and enjoy the beautiful green space in the city.
It is a great place to walk around and view the fountains, ponds, and fish.
I took a day trip to the falls while on vacation in Lookout Mountain.
Well worth the trip.
The entire place is comprised of several buildings/sites (Church -upper & lower; monastery, John Paul II Eucharistic Center; Nativity scene, replica of Lourdes Grotto and castle building which is a gift-shop and m...

It’s really amazing to walk around and see the development of industry and have an appreciation for the hard labor that was once done.
