    Default Anybody ever go to Gulf Shores, AL for vacation?

    The wife and I were talking about vacations today. She's never seen the ocean. That's what she wants to do. That's cool with me. Her sister has been to Gulf Shores a couple of time and says it's nice. Good family stuff, etc. I was wondering if any of the Linkers had any experience with Gulf Shores, thanks

    Are you ever in luck.....I've been down there so many times it's not even funny. Every summer for about 20 years or so and 4-5 times one summer, I've gone to Gulf Shores. It doesn't hurt that my uncle has lived down there for about 25 yrs or so. My cousin was actually a life guard on the public beach. Let me know if your going and I'll let you in on a few places to go eat and maybe some suggestions on where to stay.

    Also forgot to mention, but if your coming down I-65, you'll be coming about 10 miles from my house.

    Didn't the Alabama gulf coast region get pummeled by Katrina? Might not be as pretty as in past years.

    I've been there several times, when I was going to school in Alabama. Always had a good time, nice white sand.
    Nothing to see here.

    Been to Gulf Shores many times... in fact I was just there last month. I love it. For vacation spots though Destin, Fl is very close to Gulf Shores and I like it alot better. Much nicer beaches!

    Touring the Alabama is something you might want to do.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Just let me know. Thankfully with an uncle that live there, he can let me know what is good and what "looks" good. Sometimes the best places are off the beaten path a little. Also let me know if your coming down I-65.
