After the success of our Great American Road Trip to the heart of the United States a couple years ago, I was excited to turn a trip to Huntsville Alabama to a larger road trip to Alabama and Mississippi (with a stop at a UNESCO World Heritage site in Louisiana). I was in Huntsville Alabama for the TBEX North America conference. I had a chance to do a press trip afterwards down to Gulf Shores Alabama.
Gulf Shores is an area with long beautiful white sand beaches, a surprisingly good small zoo, some great opportunities for watersports and other outdoor recreation. Besides biking, boating, sailing, and lots of eating, I also had a chance to visit Fort Morgan State Park which was the site of the Battle of Mobile Bay in the Civil War.
