A visit to the coast of AL is not complete without a trip to historic Ft. Morgan, a key part of the Civil War. Take a short ferry ride to sister Ft. Gaines & visit the Estuarium/Sea Lab on Dauphin Island. Your stay at the well-landscaped Gulf Shores Plantation, half way between this historic fort & main town of Gulf Shores, is worth the drive. This 524 unit complex has separate low density buildings, on-site cafe & is near the famous Beach Club offering a market & spa. See the view on your private balcony. When you are ready for some activity enjoy the dome pool and exercise room in Building 3. The only heated, outdoor pool is located right in front of this building! Get a bite to eat or some coffee at the on-site cafe. You are only minutes from the famous Beach Club where you can enjoy the market and spa. Go golfing at the prestigious Kiva Dunes, or Peninsula Links. Interested in staying longer? This unit is also available for monthly rentals October to May 1. Call for details.
