Alabama probably doesn’t come to mind when you think of a beach vacation
. However, those who have seen the white “sugar” sand beaches and clear turquoise Gulf of Mexico waters know that the Alabama coast is one of the country’s best-hidden gems.
Aside from the 32 miles of pristine beach, Alabama’s coast offers mild year-round weather, world-class fishing, golf, miles of bike and walking paths, a vibrant foodie scene, shopping and more. Ready to experience it firsthand? One of the best ways to visit is renting an RV
and staying at one of the RV parks on the beach in Alabama.
