Top 5 Gulf Shores Attractions for Family Vacations

Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo

As one of the most popular family attractions in the region, the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo can’t be missed by any group of people staying in town! You’ll enter a gorgeous tropical urban oasis tucked off the main highway and six miles from the beach. Youngsters and those young at heart will fall in love with the zoo’s exhibits and hands-on activities. Get ready to slither through the Reptile House or hoof it to the Petting Zoo!

Gulf State Park

There are endless things to do at the sandy Gulf State Park, from geocaching and fishing to biking and hiking. Families can get the most out of their park visit by reserving a guided pier walk tour or educational Angler Academy session! We love diving into the surging waters, paddling around with our loved ones. One important thing to note is park guests should leave only footprints behind. Did we mention there’s a pet-friendly dog pond at Lake Shelby!?

Fort Morgan

Family of history buffs? The historic site of Fort Morgan is the Gulf Shore attraction for you! Take a self-guided tour of the fort, learning about the Battle of Mobile Bay and its impact on the Civil War. You can also explore the site’s many nature areas, picnic spots, beaches, and a boat launch. Fort Morgan has had a long history throughout the “modern” era, being active during four wars.
