I love my iPhone for many reasons, one big reason being that it allows me to download cool apps—like the Coastal Byway mobile app. It’s free to download and includes features like an attractions listing, interactive map, events, and videos. It’s also available as for Androids, too.
The Alabama Coastal Connection is one of my favorite Gulf Shores & Orange Beach nature attractions. My family tends to spend much time on the stretch between For Morgan and Gulf State Park—it’s the closest to Gulf Shores Plantation. But there’s so much more to see on this 130-mile scenic byway—museums, parks, nature preserves and trails (the Hugh S. Branyon Back Country Trail is a personal favorite). As many times as we’ve vacationed on Alabama’s Gulf Coast, even I haven’t seen the entire Byway. I sure would like to!
And with our spring vacation coming up, anything to help us explore the National Scenic Byway to its fullest extent is a welcome addition!
