This is home to the Gulf of Mexico's second longest fishing pier and 6,500 acres of land where you can explore its many nature trails, kayak, or canoe on its three fresh water lakes, and enjoy its fabulous beaches nearly year round. 

Fort Morgan
If you are a history buff you may enjoy a visit to the remains of historic Fort Morgan, which was built to protect the entrance to Mobile Bay and Southern coast of the United States with its counterpart across the Bay on Dauphin Island, Fort Gaines. It was named after General Daniel Morgan, who is well known for his part in the Battle of Cowpens, during the Revolutionary War.
