The wetlands and inaccessible coastline of Gulf Shores were largely unknown before the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway was finished in 1937. The beach's breathtaking beauty was only revealed once access to the area was made easier. In the 1940s, the first hotel opened, setting the stage for what would quickly develop into one of Alabama's most well-loved beach communities.
Gulf Shores neighbors Orange Beach and is home to sugar-white sands and turquoise waters known for their beauty around the world. While the main attraction of Gulf Shores is its beautiful coastline along the Gulf of Mexico, you'll also find a wide variety of other outdoor pursuits there, like biking, golfing, and bird watching, all against the backdrop of the area's clear waters and blue skies.
