#216 Las Palmas Directions
THANK YOU FOR BEING OUR GUEST!
Unit 216 Las Palmas 930 West Beach Blvd, Gulf Shores Al 36547
Here are some directions and information about the area and our condo.
Take I-10 east crossing over the Mobile Bay. Your third exit will be Hwy 59, head south approximately 28 miles. You will know you are close when you cross over the intercoastal canal (only large bridge) and you will be in Gulf Shores. At the second light, you will be at Fort Morgan Rd, you will find a Rouses grocery store on your right & if you take a left there is a Walmart immediately on your left, Pier 33 is also a block away from the condo. (great little mom & pop grocery store with lots more.)
Come back out on 59 & go south about 1.5 miles and you will dead end at the beach. We refer to this intersection as The T or THE HANGOUT. Take a right and the complex is located at about .8 of a mile, where the Road splits, the condo is in that V. Park on the front side of the building under number 216 Stairs are on your left & condo is on the second floor. Take a left and the unit will be a few doors down on the right.
Alexa is on the fridge for music & Dish network has lots of channels. There are 3 controls for the TV Cable – use main control and turn to HDMI 1 and then use the dish remote to change channels.
Roku – use main control and turn to HDMI 2 and use the small Roku remote. There are 25 free channels to stream news and free movies. You can also login to your Netflix (be sure to log back out or the next guest might be watching free movies on your account 🙁 Please do not leave the air conditioning running if you are going to leave the sliding glass door open. This burns up compressors and might end up leaving you in the heat until we can get a service guy out to see you. Also please keep the A/C set at 70 or above. This helps us keep our cost low for our guest.

**NAVAL FLIGHT MUSEUM** Pensacola is about an hour away. Run the beach highway & check out the Navy flight museum & also Pensacola beach. Could make an entire day out of this. If you have kids or husband they will love NAVAL AVIATION MUSEUM & its free entry.
**THE GULF STATE PARK** THE OUTBACK TRAIL. is 24 miles of paved bike paths. There are many entries, but the closest one will be on fort Morgan Road. Go past the Walmart when the road takes a hard left you will remain straight and you will be in the park. You will see parking, maps, & trail heads.
There is also a ranger’s station with maps and help. Gulf state Pier is located about a mile east all the condos if heading towards Orange Beach. The Fishing pier is about $6 for entrance & 7-day fishing pass is around $27. Kids under 11 are free. Fishing license can be purchased online. Fishing the beach is also great & only requires a license.
There are two great tackle shops just south of the Intracoastal canal bridge. Hooked Up & Firths Bait & Supply. These guys can get you set up for some fishing on your own. If you are interested in a charter fishing trip, please reach out to me and I will assist with that. PLEASE DO NOT CLEAN FISH IN CONDO.
**RESTAURANTS** For lunch I love Desoto’s in Gulf Shores. $8.00 lunch; Hangout, or Pappa Roccos for pizza.
BEST ON THE BEACH- Shrimp Basket, Old Bay Steamers, Gulf Island Grill, The Flip Flop Coffee shop is .5 miles back towards the hangout on your left.
I highly recommend spending lunch or an evening in Orange Beach at either The Gulf Restaurant or Cobalt’s for some food & drinks. But mainly because they are at the pass & you can just chill and watch the boat traffic.
Flora- Bama Bar is about 2 miles east of these two establishments. The bar is great but for food go across the street to the Flora-Bama yacht club. ( it is not a yacht club ) 🙂
