The two Cities of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have been awarded as one of the top 5 Gulf Coast Beaches by the Travel Channel. For the purposes of the competition the two cities were combined as one destination. The story starts off with the age old reference to the “surprise” that Alabama even has a beach! From there the The Travel Channel Article takes a pleasant turn towards truly explaining how beautiful our area really is, with statements like “offer beachgoers 32 miles of spectacular, sugar-white beaches”. Some of the area attractions mentioned are the Gulf State Park and the Gulf Shores Public Beach as well as Adventure Island and Waterville USA.
