Live where other people vacation!
The Alabama Gulf Coast is warmed by sunshine, history, culture and unspoiled natural beauty. You’ll find 32 miles of sugar-white sand beaches made almost entirely of fine, quartz grains washed down from the Appalachian Mountains thousands of years ago. Once you visit the Gulf Coast area of Baldwin County, you quickly realize these are some of the finest beaches in the world, and one of America’s hidden gem locations. Instead of yearning to return year after year to feel the sand between your toes, splash around in the turquoise water, smell the salty air and admire the jaw-dropping sunsets of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama you now have the chance to live here.
