The beaches of Alabama have been a well-kept secret for quite a while. As I am traveling this month, this has been reinforced many times. When people ask where I live, and I answer Orange Beach Alabama, they usually say that they have never heard of it.
Sometimes I just smile to myself and keep my little secret, and other times I try to explain that yes, we have pristine beaches in Alabama!
I like to tell folks to do a little research when planning their next vacation, they might just want to ditch Florida this year to Gulf Shores or Orange Beach. Some of the advantages are obvious, it is less know, and therefore much less crowded. If you are a regular visitor to Alabama beaches, you already know this.
Come see for yourself!
As a photographer in Orange Beach, I meet lots of families that are here on vacation. Some are continuing a tradition and others have just discovered our family-friendly vacation destination. Regardless of how long they have been visiting the area, everyone can agree there is something for everyone here. Best known for fishing and water-sports, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach also offer plenty of shopping and entertainment.
Alabama beaches are stretch out for miles.
Our shoreline has white sandy beaches and clear Gulf of Mexico water for miles and miles. In town, you can find seafood and evening entertainment. If you head west towards Fort Morgan, you can have the peace and quiet that some families love. You can even bring your bikes to explore our nature trails that go from the Fort Morgan area to Orange Beach.
Come on and visit us to see for yourself!
While you are here, chase a ghost crab, hit a golf ball, catch a wave, go fishing, take a dolphin cruise and most importantly take family beach photos with Beach Shutters Photography! Just like this extended family did. Part of this extended family came all the way from Oregon, so it was very important to document their time together here at our Alabama beaches with photos.
