Gulf Shores is nestled along the Alabama Gulf Coast's 32 miles of sugar-white sand beaches. This coastal city is home to just over 10,000 full time residents who live across its 28 square miles. While the local shoreline is overflowing with American history at nearby Historic Fort Morgan, Gulf Shores wasn't incorporated as a town until 1957 and remains a relative youngster budding with opportunity.
In a nutshell, Gulf Shores blends a unique combination of one America's most award-winning coastlines and family-friendly communities with a local economy that is thriving like never before.
