We stopped in when we first got to Gulf Shores. The lady that helped us was very knowledgeable of the area and everything here. Plenty of brochures and coupons. This should be your first stop at Gulf Shores.

While it's humorous that this is the #1 attraction in gulf shores, they do earn their 5 star rating. Clean and well organized. Staff very friendly and helpful. Can't complain about anything here.

Splashing in the Gulf can be an enjoyable experience, but be mindful of the current surf conditions. Stop by the welcome center for a handout about surf conditions and the beach flags and their meanings.
