New Osprey Chicks!
Ospreys are amazing creatures... large raptors which can grow to a wingspan of 50 to over 70 inches, and their habitat includes our back yards. In a partnership between the Alabama Coastal Foundation, The Nature Conservancy, and the City of Orange Beach, with grant funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, we get to watch a remarkable event... the rearing of baby Osprey chicks. They just hatched over the weekend, Friday May 3rd and Sunday the 5th. Keep posted as they grow, and even watch mama bring home some fish !

Welcome to the new site all about Orange Beach the fastest growing Family Vacationland on the Gulf Coast.
Many people do not realize that Alabama has some of the most beautiful white sugar sand beaches on the Gulf Coast. We have 32 miles of Gulf of Mexico beaches between Mobile Bay and the Florida Panhandle. For the first time in history, in 2002 our Alabama beaches generated more income from vacationing tourists than any of the counties along the Florida Panhandle. We think this is because people have finally discovered what we knew all along, that The Gulf Shores / Orange Beach / Perdido Key beaches are the best place for family vacation fun. We have less traffic than the popular Florida Gulf Coast destinations too and that certainly makes a vacation less stressful and more of a true vacation.
Did you Bring your Pet to the Beach ? Coastal Pet Resort is a luxury pet resort and kennel serving the entire Gulf Coast area. Coastal Pet Resort's services include boarding and grooming to doggie day camp programs. They can provide accommodations for all types of pets.
