Gulf Shores, Alabama
The Gulf Shores is situated close to Orange Beach, which is also located on the 32 mile coastline at the southern tip of Alabama next to the Gulf of Mexico. The small beach town of Gulf Shores is home to an amazing beach which is made up of fine grain sand deposited here over centuries from the Appalachian quartz deposits.
