Gulf Coast Birding: Fort Morgan, Dauphin Island, Theodore
Alabama's Gulf Coast is a stopover point for birds as they return from Central to North America in the spring, so it's the perfect place to see herons, seagulls, pelicans and more.
Take a bike ride or go hiking on the many scenic trails that wind through picturesque mountains and canyons, and then later, cool off under a waterfall. Or if that’s a little too active, simply relax on the sugar-white sands of the Gulf Coast beaches before taking a dip in the warm, turquoise waters. There’s something for every lover of the outdoors here, no matter how you like to enjoy it.
