My thoughts are it's because the Alabama Gulf Coast doesn't have earthquakes, snow, the beaches are
beautiful, and there are plenty of things to do outdoors like golf and walking in the many State Parks and Trails that abound. The fishing and
boating is great too, and property taxes are considered low.
It's almost scary how much of a perfect place it is to retire to or spend lots of quality vacation time.
Some of the most beautiful beaches in the world exist right here! Jimmy Buffet, who has a home nearby, was reported to have said that
the beautiful beaches of the Alabama Gulf Coast was as good as what you'll find in the Caribbean, but a lot closer!
Truly difficult is trying to figure out where you want to be in this southern paradise! There's beautiful Orange Beach and
Gulf Shores, known for their great restaurants, water sports and gorgeous beaches, and historic Fort Morgan where the Civil War
battle of Mobile Bay was fought and now has lots of "beach" folks loving their life there. Then there's Bon Secour with, its
maritime fishing atmosphere, and we don't want to leave out beautiful Magnolia Springs, Fairhope & Daphne located on Mobile Bay,
Foley and many others. By the way, the Foley area is becoming like a "Myrtle Beach" and is home to a SUPER sports tourism destination, as well as "OWA", a new theme park
owned by the local Creek Indian Tribe which is only about 8 miles north of the beautiful beaches of Orange Beach & Gulf Shores!
And ALL OF THIS is within easy driving distance of most of the Southeastern USA! New Orleans and Houston
are also less than a day's trip away by auto, and Southwest Air Lines serves Pensacola International Airport through Houston and Nashville on a daily basis,
and weekly in the summers from Chicago, Kansas City, Austin, Denver, and St. Louis.
There's lots of history, sports, shopping, culture, arts, museums, fine dining, water sports and much more to keep busy with.
Our area is known for some of the best health care in the Nation.
