If you have come so far as to ask yourself the question “why prepare for a cold winter?”, then it might be time to rethink your winter plans! Snow tires, anti-freeze…why?
Forget all of that and spend your winter months in the Gulf Shores, AL area. With an average temperature of about 60 degrees, sugar white sand beaches, championship golf courses, fabulous fishing, shopping, countless snowbird activities and the ever-popular snowbird clubs, the Gulf Shores area is an ideal winter nesting ground for those of you wanting to escape the winter chill of the North.
Scheduled events for winter 2009/2010 include the Annual Christmas at Fort Morgan, where you can experience life during a Civil War Christmas. The 25th Annual Polar Bear Dip is scheduled for January 1, so all of you “polar bear” crazies can take a dip into the chilly, January Gulf of Mexico water.
