Fort Morgan Alabama Vacation
Just off the beaten path and down a winding stretch of road is the laid back community of Fort Morgan, Alabama. A peninsula, surrounded by bodies of water including the Bon Secour Bay, Little Lagoon and the Gulf of Mexico.
Along this 20 miles stretch of road, you’ll find relaxation at every turn with outdoor adventure, golf courses, nature walks and a pace that encourages biking and walking. Because of its low commercial development, the area offers picturesque and uncrowded waterfront settings and quiet natural surroundings. In fact, much of the Fort Morgan Peninsula is in the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, which attracts bird lovers from across the country.
Historic Fort Morgan
At the end of the road at the mouth of the Mobile Bay is Historic Fort Morgan which saw action during four wars and is a draw for history buffs. It’s most famous for its role in the Battle of Mobile Bay during the Civil War but was occupied by the military as recently as 1946. Join them for a Living History tour or tour the Fort by Candlelight at dusk. There is something for everyone.
The Mobile Bay Ferry
During the summer months, you can catch The Mobile Bay Ferry at the fort which carries passengers and vehicles across Mobile Bay. Considered “the Gulf-Coast’s Most Scenic Drive”, the ferry saves travelers hours of driving time plus the high cost of fuel by providing a travel link across the mouth of Mobile Bay. The trip between Fort Morgan, Dauphin Island and Fort Gaines at Fort Morgan provides wonderful views of the two historic forts that have long guarded the entrance of Mobile Bay. The trip takes approximately 40 minutes and is a great way for passengers to view birds, sea life and other boats and ships.
The area’s unique combination of nature, history, and recreation make for an unforgettable Fort Morgan Alabama vacation experience. Check out all of our amazing Fort Morgan rental homes today and Book Online Today!
