Fort Morgan, Alabama, is a great place to vacation on the Gulf Coast area of Alabama. Beaches, Golf, Restaurants are all nearby.
Fort Morgan is a great choice for Alabama vacation trips for family or friends. Same great beach. Lots of activities and food options, often more cost-effective than staying right on the beach on West Beach Boulevard, AND the Gulf Shores beach chair, umbrella and alcohol rules often do not apply.
Beaches? You bet! It’s all one beach…
Same white sugary sands. The Fort Morgan beaches are in fact contiguous to the Gulf Shores beaches: It’s all one coastline. Rather than head out the more built up West Beach Blvd, you take a right at the Highway 59 x 180 intersection and head out 180. And we have several nice vacation Fort Morgan vacation homes available, including Fort Sun, Gulf & Golf at the Plantation, and the Beach Castle!
Golf Courses? Fort Morgan has 2 award-winning courses.
Some of the best golf courses in the area are on Fort Morgan, including the Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club, and the award-winning Kiva Dunes (home to our own Gulf & Golf at the Plantation, by the way).
And places to eat? Many choices. Great food!
