If you were at the beach this weekend, I hope you got a chance to go to the Strawberry Festival.  I hadn’t been in years and really enjoyed all the festivities.  

April 20th, Gulf Shores is hosting two fun events, the Zydeco and Crawfish Festival in Gulf Shores and Breakfast with the Bunny.

Not only do we have sugar sand beaches and sunny blue skies, we have great family friendly activities, year-round.
