Gulf State Park

We are preparing for our third outing in our new Crusader 270RET..this trip will be to Gulf Shores on the 27th of July thru the 7th of August.
We are praying that this trip will be un-eventful as compared to our previous two outings with the Crusader which have not been un-eventful.
We have checked everything over three times, taken all necessary precautions known to us...

Very familiar with the Gulf Shores / Orange Beach area. Have spent time in the Gulf State Park and campground. You will really enjoy yourselves. They don't call it Pleasure Island for no reason. Would like to be going there as well.

The Original Oyster House is a must eat at restaurant. It's convenient to the park on AL 59 about 3 or 4 blocks from the Gulf. Been eating there for 20 years and never had a bad meal. Seafood gumbo is outstanding. Theirs is the standard that I measure others by. Rarely, but rarely, find one as good. For a different fine dinning (but buffet) experience try the Gift Horse Restaurant in Foley. It's 1 1/2 blocks west of AL 59 on US 98. You'll never get praline sweet potatoes like theirs anywhere else. The Mellow Yellow in Foley has great pizza as does Lillian's over on the Florida side. Crico's Pizza & Subs on 59 in Gulf Shores is also very good. I believe they deliver. Enjoy your stay, use plenty of suntan lotion, spend lots of money. Wait a minute, come to the Florida side to do that! My retirement check depends upon you.

I'll second the recommendation for the "Original Oyster House" . Their chocolate peanut butter pie is the best anywhere. It's hard to do but you must save room for a piece.

GREAT little zoo in Gulf Shores, Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo | Gulf Shores, Alabama

And the National Naval Aviation Museum (home of the Blue Angels) is about 25 miles East, National Naval Aviation Museum - Home

I like to wander around Fairhope on Mobile bay, neat little town. Fort Morgan is worth a look, damn the torpedos, full speed ahead, where the battle took place.
Make sure and be on the beach at sunset at least once.
Good fishing, white sand and turquoise water, and Royal Red shrimps, the best.
