We didn't find the welcome center until halfway through our vacation. They were a great help in finding things to do and restaurants in the area! Make sure and stop by at the beginning of your trip and get coupons and booklets for the area!

The visitor center is on Hwy 59(left side of road) heading to Foley from Gulf Shores. Look for the large dolphins in the front of the building. Worth the stop for information and coupons.
