Visiting Fishing Charters & Tours and Gulf State Park will get you outdoors. Fort Morgan State Historic Site and Our Lady of the Gulf Catholic Church will appeal to history buffs. There's lots more to do: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, take a leisurely stroll along Gulf State Park Fishing Pier, and get engrossed in the history at Gulf Shores Museum.
