Gulf Shores is the westernmost Baldwin County community that sits on the Gulf of Mexico, and it is home to a number of protected natural and historical sites. Downtown Gulf Shores is one of the most exciting places to be on the entire Gulf Coast. Recently, the Gulf Shores City Council introduced a plan to revitalize the entire community and make it a more attractive choice for both visitors and potential residents alike. Dubbed the Small Town, Big Beach Vision 2025 for Sustainability, the first phases of this plan are already under way and improvements can be seen all over town, particularly in the Gulf Place (public beach) area. Many of the Gulf-front condominiums that have become such popular choices for both second homes and beach getaways for vacationers, will also benefit by these changes.
Gulf Shores has a number of attractions, including Gulf State Park and the historical Fort Morgan military installation. These areas attract visitors from all over the country and are a must-see for visitors to the area. The Gulf Shores Hangout hosts an annual music festival that lasts an entire weekend and takes place right on the beach, headlining A-list musicians and attracting thousands of people.
