Nature and history lovers will find pure solace in the surroundings of Southern Baldwin and Mobile counties; home to some of the most unique attractions in the state.

Starting with a short ferry ride from Fort Morgan, “day trippers” can easily experience the marvel of Fort Gaines and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, both located within walking distance of each other on Dauphin Island. Anchored in more than a century of existence, travelers can experience original Civil War architecture as well as see cannons being fired and a real blacksmith creating ironworks.  The Dauphin Island Sea Lab is home to hundreds of sea creatures, all located in an easy to navigate, child friendly building.

If you so choose, travelers can easily reach the breathtaking estate of Bellingrath Gardens.  Originally home to the Coca-Cola bottling patriarch, this elegantly manicured expanse of floral and various agricultural collections gives a nod to the past with all original architecture and furniture still intact throughout the property.  Make a day of your visit including lunch at the café and a boat ride around Fowl River.

Kaiser Realty, Inc. is excited to announce our involvement in the upcoming, national release of the latest installment in the PBS series “Getting Away Together.”   This “Vacation Rental Managers Association” powered program features four California natives as they embark on a girlfriend getaway in beautiful Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama!

Making their way to one of Kaiser Realty, Inc.’s very own condos at the elegant Colonnades complex, these four best friends soon learned that they were about to have the trip of a lifetime.

Throughout the episode, the ladies use Kaiser Realty, Inc. industry partners for fun beach activities such as kayak tours, dolphin cruises and even meeting some of our furry friends at the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo! When it came time to dine, the ladies made it an adventure at the world famous home of Lucy Buffett, Lulu’s.

As these ladies learned more about the culture, cuisine and southern hospitality that surrounds our beloved area, they were able to show the world how to build a truly magical family vacation experience along the sugar white sand beaches of the Alabama Gulf Coast.

The video below highlights some of the fun actives that these ladies embarked on during their stay. Let us know what you think about this mini-webisode,  and don’t forget to tune in to your local PBS station this week to catch the full length episode!

Press-Release Written by Kim Chapman of the Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism Department. The Original version of this article can be viewed here:

GULF SHORES AND ORANGE BEACH, ALA. – Are you looking for ways to spend more time outside exploring the Alabama Gulf Coast and help science while doing it? Scientists are looking to gather snapshots of local birding populations all across the U.S. and Canada and need volunteers to count these feathered friends during the Great Backyard Bird Count.

“This project is a fun way to learn about the birds of coastal Alabama while being part of a very important study that helps with bird conservation efforts,” said Joanne McDonough of the Nature Tourism Initiative. “You can even go beyond the backyard and explore the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail that spans two counties and is enhanced by directional and interpretive signage, offering enthusiasts endless opportunities to count birds and explore their habitats.”

The Alabama Coastal Birding Trail is a series of loops winding through Mobile and Baldwin Counties. Event participants can also checkout more habitats in the area including the Gulf State Park and the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge.

Tracking begins on Friday, Feb. 17 and lasts until Monday, Feb. 20. No registration is required for the event and it is open to all ages. Participants are asked to simply watch birds wherever they choose for 15 minutes and document the species at www.birdcount.org. Helpful charts and other tools are also available on the website.

Last year, the Great Backyard Bird Count had great success with participants submitting over 92,000 lists and 11 states making new checklists records. More than 11.4 million birds were observed, and 596 species were identified.

To learn more about the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail, visit www.alabamacoastalbirdingtrail.com. Additional information on the Great Backyard Bird Count can be found at www.birdsource.org/gbbc.

(Gulf Shores, AL) The small waterway appears on Civil War-era maps of the
Gulf Coast.  It depends on a small cut-through to the Gulf of Mexico, known as  “Little Lagoon Pass” or locally as just “The Pass,”  for a fresh influx of salt water.  It has plenty of room for sail boats, windsurfing, power boats and jet skis.  Fish, shrimp and crabs call it home.  New condominiums on the south shore give Gulf Shores visitors a waterfront view to compliment the Gulf of Mexico view, while homes that have withstood decades of hurricanes line its shores on the north.
