Here, youʼll find the charming waterfront communities along the Mobile Bay and two beach towns along the coast: Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. With their plethora of resort and condo accommodations, these cities bring in some of the countryʼs largest entertainment events like the National Shrimp Festival held each October in Gulf Shores, the Hangout Music Festival held each May in Gulf Shores, and Mardi Gras celebrations, which can be found throughout the area in February. While not enjoying a festival, take to the beach where youʼll find sugar-white sand, emerald water and golden sunsets. For meetings, the area offers gulf-front accommodations and meeting facilities for up to 800 as well as amenities for most any groupʼs needs. Add in an abundance of recreational opportunities and succulent gulf seafood, and you've got a meeting destination no one can resist. ■ ALABAMA ARKANSAS FLORIDA GEORGIA KENTUCKY LOUISIANA MARYLAND MISSISSIPPI MISSOURI NORTH CAROLINA OKLAHOMA SOUTH CAROLINA TENNESSEE TEXAS VIRGINIA WEST VIRGINIA Alabama's Gulf Coast I N S I D E R ' S G U I D E Throughout this coastal region there are dozens of seafood restaurants preparing local favorites like gumbo, oysters on the half-shell and shrimp Po'Boys.
