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 Employees at the 2010 Alabama Coastal Cleanup

This Saturday, September 17th, marks the 24th Annual Coastal Cleanup, organized by Alabama PALS (People Against A Littered State) in Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan and Orange Beach. The event kicks off at 8 a.m., with volunteers from around the area walking designated sections of our beautiful coastline to insure the beaches are nice and tidy for everyone’s enjoyment.

“Approximately 5,000 volunteers picked up 100,000 pounds of litter from our treasured Gulf Coast region,” during the 2010 Coastal Cleanup, ensuring that thousands of others can enjoy our sugar white sand beaches.  This year, volunteers will once again be combing the beaches to perfection, but will also be cleaning along the Hwy 59 corridor, from I-65 all the way to Gulf Shores. This will provide a brilliant introduction of the Gulf Coast to those traveling towards the Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan and Orange Beach areas.

Volunteers are encouraged to meet at one of the various gathering points on Saturday and be sure to bring water, sunscreen and a hat or visor of some kind.  Along with individual sponsored sections of the coast, general volunteer meeting places along the beaches are  [Read more...]

Peninsula Golf Club (Lakes Course)Pulling into the entrance of Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club, is like entering a world you only present in great Southern literature or stories passed down from your grandparents.

The canopy of live oaks, cypress trees and coastal vegetation create the perfect backdrop for the stunning 27 holes of Earl Stone golf, 8 Rubico tennis courts and newly renovated clubhouse.  The surroundings are even more intensified by the club’s close proximity to the Bon Secour Wildlife Preserve; providing possible animal encounters throughout the three separate 9-hole courses.

For everyone from the weekend golfer to the avid competitor, Peninsula’s allure is perfected by their acute attention to detail. From the meticulously stacked practice balls at the driving range, to the chilled towels offered throughout your round, the entire staff is wholeheartedly [Read more...]

Fort MorganThe 4th of July weekend is upon us, and the thoughts of a 3-day-weekend, fireworks shows and family barbeques have probably filling your heads for weeks now.

Independence Day is the perfect time to sit back and relax with the family, but it is also a time to remember those who have fought and died for the freedom that we are able to enjoy everyday.

Fort Morgan, located at the mouth of Mobile Bay along the Gulf of Mexico is giving everyone the opportunity to reflect, honor and have fun with our nation’s history at their “Salute to American Independence.”  From 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on July 4th, there will be interpreters dressed in various uniforms from the periods throughout Fort Morgan’s active history, located at the fort in Gulf Shores. Spectators will also be given the opportunity to see the Civil War cannon fired in honor of our nation’s birthday.

An event like this is great to have at Fort Morgan, especially since it has had such a rich historical past among our nation’s military.  Originally built in 1834 and named after the Revolutionary War hero, Daniel Morgan, Fort Morgan is often described as “One of the finest examples of military architecture in the New World.”  The Army’s Corps of Engineers were responsible [Read more...]

American FlagFor those of you planning the perfect 4th of July celebration, Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan and Orange Beach are here to help.

Kicking the weekend off early, The Wharf in Orange Beach will begin its multi-day fireworks extravaganza on Saturday, July 2nd.  For three days (July 2, 3, 4) The Wharf will be putting on, what they hope to be, the “biggest set of shows this island has ever seen.”  The shows begin at 9 p.m. each night and will be accompanied by Patriotic music to help celebrate this exciting event.

On July 3rd, from 6-9:30 pm, Perdido Beach Resort is also starting the celebrations early by hosting one huge Independence Day party.  They will be serving Southern-style barbecue, have live music from the Tip Tops (Jazz/Soul/Rockers from Mobile), and of course, Fireworks!

The fun on July 4th begins bright and early at Fort Morgan’s Artillery Salute to American Independence.  This celebration of our nation’s birthday will be exemplified by the ceremonial cannon blast and guided tours of the Fort will take place [Read more...]

“I don’t want to leave the Hangout” yelled Grace Potter of “Grace Potter and the Nocturnals,” halfway through the band’s Friday afternoon set. “I want to stay here forever with all you beautiful people.”

Potter’s quote pretty much sums up the feelings of both the musicians and participants of this year’s Hangout Music Fest. Boasting sold-out ticket sales (35,000 tickets) and practically sold out room accommodations from Fort Morgan to Orange Beach, nobody can claim the event was not a success.

The weekend festivities began Thursday evening at the pre-party, open to those who opted for the extra night’s ticket, giving those in attendance a sneak peak of what was to come. Friday, the opening day of the festival, could have been described as hectic but fun, with thousands of people excitedly waiting outside the gate to exchange their paper tickets for the 3-day wristband before the festival’s 1 pm start time.

“The priority is the fan experience,” Shaul Zislin, the festival’s founder, told a Press-Register [Read more...]
