    Attendant was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Lots of information available here. Worth the time to stop and chat.

    Nice place to walk around, but the shops there are very expensive. We did ride the ferris wheel, which was nice. But other than that, we probably wouldn't return.

    This trail is right across the road from our rental. Nice level trail and boardwalk with many benches if you need to take a break. We saw an armadillo and saw/heard many birds. Easy to spend an hour or two here getting some steps in.

    We went as a family with two teenagers, so not the target audience, but they wanted to do the glow golf, which was fun. The outdoor golf course was a little too warm, and at one point we saw a snake on the course, but that wasn't their fault. We had bought tickets to do a water bumper thing, but nobody was working there, so we skipped it. The go-carts were fun, however.

    March is hit and miss for warm weather. We missed it, only in the 50,s the week we were here. But the sun is very warm and if you put your back to a dune and get out of the wind it’s really warm. The water temperature was warmer than the air so you could swim and be warm as the air was frigid.

    A popular beach and rightly so. The state maintains nicely, but trash is everywhere. We always bring a bag and try to do our part even though we aren’t the ones making the mess. It was very windy and red flags were up, but you could still collect some nice shells and wade in the water.

    This was a neat little museum. It wasn’t very big, and only takes around an hour or so. That said it was a good museum about the local history. The curator was friendly, and very informative. Worth a stop if your in the area.

    $8.00 to ride around four times. You can see the water and boats from the top. You can bring your dog on the ride at no extra charge.

    There was a wonderful young woman inside the nature center who had a ton of information about the park and the animals that inhabit it. She held a snake so my friend could pet it (better her than me). There were also turtles, tiny alligators, a brown bat, a skink, some fish... We saw WAY more animals here than we did in the park, but it was a chilly day and probably not the best time of year to visit. I'm very glad we stopped there.

    Great priest. Very welcoming church to those of us that are visiting. They have a Friday fish fry, hosted by the K of C that is good and supports a good cause.

    Good facilities for playing and watching baseball, softball and soccer. Plenty of parking and access to the Gulf Shores State Park Trail system

    We spent a few hours here before the rain moved in. There is a pay station in the parking lot, parking is not free. It is a bit of a walk from the parking lot to the shore to set up. It is family friendly and clean. We really enjoyed our time here.
