GULF SHORES, ALABAMA INFORMATION
Gulf Shores Hotels

Boardwalk on the Beach, Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, Bon Secour, Gulf Shores, Alabama, USAGulf Shores is a coastal city in Baldwin County, Alabama, United States. Baldwin County as a whole, has experienced rapid population growth, second only to Shelby County in Alabama. Gulf Shores is part of the Daphne-Fairhope-Foley micropolitan area.

Gulf Shores is one of three seaside resorts in the state of Alabama (Orange Beach and Dauphin Island being the other two). Most of the city is therefore devoted to beachfront hotels, condominiums, vacation houses and a tourism/real estate based economy. Gulf Shores (like Orange Beach and Dauphin Island) has a large beach, fronting the Gulf of Mexico between New Orleans, Louisiana and Florida. The adjacent resort city of Orange Beach offers direct access to the Gulf of Mexico for vessels, via Perdido Pass. The greater area is home to a large charter fishing fleet. Gulf Shores is served by Jack Edwards Airport, which is located on the north side of town.

Unincorporated Ft. Morgan, the City of Gulf Shores and the City of Orange Beach are contiguous from west to east. The Intracoastal Waterway forms a canal starting at Mobile Bay to the west, and cuts through to the east, into Wolf Bay. The beach from Ft. Morgan to Perdido Pass is about 30 miles (48 km) long. From there, a bridge connects Orange Beach to Perdido Key, Alabama which continues to the Florida state line.

The Alabama Gulf Coast beach is known for its bright, "sugar white" quartz sand. Although quite abrasive to CDs, sunglasses etc., it is powdery, soft and comfortable to the feet. The Gulf of Mexico waters along the beachfront tend to have an emerald green tint due to the close proximity of the Mobile Bay estuary to the west, where the Mobile river meets the Gulf of Mexico. The prevailing west to east current along the beach brings suspended silt from the Mobile river delta toward the Florida panhandle, giving the water its green tint.
