Gulf Shores is an underrated place for a Gulf Coast getaway, with immediate access to the best of Alabama's coastline. You'll be near the Florida Panhandle too, but between local sights and plenty of events, you won't need to hop state lines too often!
Where is Gulf Shores, AL?
Gulf Shores lies at Alabama's southern tip. It's right across the Florida state line, putting you only 17 miles from Perdido Key and 34 miles from Pensacola. The same fantastic beaches lie on either side of the border so you won't need to cross over too often. If you'd like to participate in the annual Flora-Bama Mullet Toss (the fish, not the haircut), however, you'll need to be on the Florida side!
