The Quieter Side of Gulf Shores

Gulf Shores is the southernmost settlement in Alabama.  Located just west of Pensacola, Florida, the resort town with a population of 12,000 attracts many tourists, especially during spring break.  For some reason, I expected a quainter city, so I was surprised by all high rises which lined the beach and the amusement park.  That said, during the 24 hours I visited Gulf Shores, I didn’t even make it to the built-up area.
