Blue Angels
Their trademark blue and yellow planes are a Gulf Coast tradition as they fly in formation over the glistening open water of the Gulf of Mexico. Stationed in Pensacola, Florida, this precision fly team performs at 68 air shows for more than 17 million spectators each year. If you are lucky enough to catch one of their exhibitions, you will see premier aviators perform acrobatic aeronautic feats such as the four plane diamond and the pinnacle of precision flying, the renowned six-jet Delta formation.

My Favorite Restaurants
Sea-N-Suds
Sea-N-Suds has been servin' up steamed and fried seafood on East Beach Blvd in Gulf Shores for over 25 years. They are located behind The Boardwalk, which are condos in Gulf Shores AL, directly overlooking the Gulf.
The Pink Pony Pub
The Pink Pony Pub started as a little neighborhood bar in 1956. Since that time it has been destroyed by Hurricane Frederick in 1979 and weathered numerous other storms on its way to becoming a true Gulf Shores landmark. It remains one of the very few real beachfront eateries. Check out the sourdough cheese burger or the shrimp and oyster poboy and wash it down with the cold drink of your choice. You can't miss it! It's the hot pink building right on the beach! 251-948-6371.
Original Oyster House
The Original Oyster House is located in the Bayou Village Shopping Center just a few blocks north of the Gulf of Mexico. They have been a Gulf Shores staple since 1983. They serve great broiled, blackened and fried seafood and have the best salad bar on the island.
Hooters in Gulf Shores

Live Bait and Live Bait Too Restaurants
Located in Orange Beach on Perdido Beach Blvd. Serving a wide array of steaks, seafood, sandwiches and appetizers for 13 years. If you are here in the fall, you will want to check out Live Bait Too and the big screen TV's for the football games.
LuLu Buffett's Restaurant
LuLu Buffett's Restaurant at the Homeport Marina on the Intercoastal Waterway became a Gulf Shores icon the day it opened on Mardis Gras 2004. Grab a picnic table in the sand and watch a volleyball game or groove to the sounds of local song writers. Enjoy LuLu's L.A. Caviar (Black Eyed Pea Dip), a Cheeseburger in Paradise, listen to live music and watch the boats cruise the Waterway.
Dizzy Bean Coffee Shop & Internet Hotspot

Tacky Jacks
There isn't a better place to be than on Tacky Jacks spacious outdoor deck, enjoying fresh seafood, great music and gorgeous views while a nice summer breeze cools down a hot afternoon. Come by land or by sea!
Bahama Bob's Beachside Cafe
Bob shook hands with the Grim Reaper during a hurricane in the Bahamas a few years ago but was fortunate enough to live to tell it. While relaxing at Margaritaville in Key West, he ran into Frank and Steve, old friends from Gulf Shores. Thus was born the idea of Bahama Bob's on West Beach. Remember Bob's motto....the lower the Latitude, the better the Attitude!
King Neptune's Seafood Restaurant

Moe's Original Bar-B-Que
You know sometimes - even though you're at the beach - you just might want to eat something besides seafood. Moe's Original Bar-B-Que in Orange Beach is the perfect alternative! They serve generous portions of tender ribs, moist pulled pork and boneless smoked turkey breast. Don't eat it dry, though.
