Located about halfway between Tallahassee, Florida and New Orleans is a 32-mile stretch of Alabama beaches that are all about the food! This area is not as well known as the pricier resort-towns to the east, and that is precisely why it is one of the best values on the Gulf! Escape the cold and head on an affordable culinary excursion enfolded by the sun and warmth of the south. This is all about value… and amazing seafood. Alabama’s Gulf Coast is known for shrimp (especially the prized Royal Red Shrimp), oysters, crab, clams, flounder and catfish. It’s a foodie destination; here you can groove on live music, dance in the sand, play a game of volleyball, or watch a magician. Fun and food are meant to be mixed.
