Discover 130 miles of scenic beauty on Alabama’s southern tip, surrounded by sunshine, history, culture, unspoiled natural areas and southern hospitality where the Deep South meets the beach. 

Over 10,000 years ago, Pre-Mississippian Native American cultures lived here before the first Europeans arrived in 1702. They began a rich history that grew under the Spanish, French, and English, and more recently under the Confederate and American flags. Learn the story behind the famous words from the Battle of Mobile Bay “damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!”  Although much of the area is still farmed, when the rich soil gives way to white sands, watermen gather bountiful seafood.

Outdoor recreational opportunities abound in Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge and arts and culture blooms in the breathtaking Bellingrath Gardens. Visit during the Orange Beach Festival of Art, March 14-15 and the Fairhope Arts and Crafts Festival, March 20-22, 2020.
