We've been wintering in So. Baldwin County for 18 years.What a great place. Real people, wonderful food and reasonable prices. Plenty to see & do in a 50 mile radius.We have friends from New Brunswick,Ca.,who come all the way down every year now. They love it @ Wales West. The area is truly one of the best kept secrets in the south.Plenty of RV campgrounds & services. Try it you'll like it............
Just for my own knowledge, when you say you've winter there are you currently in a RV, park model, condo, or ???.
We spend 3-4 months there, Jan.to April time frame.Currently in a motor home, previously a fifth wheel.We are fortunate to have friends with property who live there,so we have a nice three acre lot with full hookup for our use.we have stayed @ Ft. Picken's in Fl., and Blackwater State Forest also in Fl. Both are great spots.We usually take a side trip, last one to Ft. Worth, Tx.area.Stayed @ Grapevine RV Park while there.Excellent spot. Have a good one......
OK, now I'm pretty confused on this thread. Are we Talking Gulf Shores, AL or Golf Shores, FL?
Makes a big difference in the months of Jan/Feb to a RV'ing snowbird.
BTW Asphaltsailor, thanks for the tips on the parks.
I told you it was a secret. Thats why your confused. Its Gulf Shores Alabama.Cool nights, Beautiful Days. Do a weather search.
Not really a secret at all. That area is pretty big with the condo/townhouse snowbirds, but not so much with RV snowbirds because it is just too cold during the height of the winter months.
I understand what the weather search will say, but what it doesn't say is for how long the high is for (i.e 90 minutes) I'll tell you when the sun goes down, the temps go down pretty fast also. Then add in the wind chill factor, plus the salt air, and it can get darn right chilly if you're living in a RV. Do you currently spend the winter there? if so are you in a RV? If yes, do you find it chilly in Jan/Feb where you need to wear a jacket till noon and go in for the night after supper time.
Wonderful area to spend the shoulder season at though. We spent some of November 2009 there, and just loved it. Great area, great prices, and great people.
That's the real reason why I ask Asphalt Sailor what his rig was. He's in an RV , but way further south in Florida. For a second there I thought he was up in AL and found a nice little bananna belt somewhere along the Gulf.
The title of this thread states "Golf Shores" and I thought it was a typo. Maybe the OP really does mean Florida, the town of Golf Shores. I doubt it, but you never know.
