Welcome to Gulf Shores

 

Why you'd want to live in Gulf Shores

 
Gulf Shores is nestled along the Alabama Gulf Coast's 32 miles of sugar-white sand beaches. This coastal city is home to just over 10,000 full-time residents who live across its 28 square miles. While the local shoreline is overflowing with American history at nearby Historic Fort Morgan, Gulf Shores wasn't incorporated as a town until 1957 and remains a relative youngster budding with opportunity. The local tourism economy injects more than $5 billion in visitor spending annually and is the catalyst behind many wildly successful businesses like Saunders Yachtworks and Lucy Buffett's LuLu's Restaurant. In a nutshell, Gulf Shores blends a unique combination of one of America's most award-winning coastlines and family-friendly communities with a local economy that is thriving like never before.
