Vacation Rentals: 3 Great Places to Take Your Dog in Gulf Shores
1. Fort Morgan Beach
At the westernmost tip of Mobile point sits Fort Morgan, a little over half an hour from Gulf Shores. As the best dog-friendly beaches in the state, Fort Morgan gives your pet the chance to run and play in the sand—as long as they stay on a leash.
2. Dauphin Island
Further afield, Dauphin Island rests a few miles outside of Mobile Bay, and a couple of hours away by car. However, with the stunning beaches, incredible views, and year-round access, the drive is worth it! Keep in mind that dogs here must also be leashed, and are only allowed on public beaches.
3. Gulf State Park
Exploring pristine Gulf State Park gives you and your pup the chance to explore some of Alabama's wildlife with campgrounds and dog-friendly trails winding through an unspoiled natural habitat. Your dogs should always be leashed in the park, for the safety of your dog and fellow hikers. Please be aware there is wildlife in the state park such as alligators and wolfs.
