There You can zip line across Gulf State Park for one of the best views in town.are plenty of ways to explore Gulf Shores, whether you want to weave through the back bays on a kayak or jet across the Gulf of Mexico on a Jet Ski. But this year, visitors renting Gulf Shores condos have yet another option for seeing the lay of the land - zip lines. The Gulf Adventure Center at Gulf State Park operates its Hummingbird Ziplines, allowing thrill-seekers to fly over the park at Lake Shelby. 

If you're down for a real adventure, head over and get strapped into a full-body harness. Once you complete the mandatory ground training, you'll climb up a rope ladder to one of the eagle nests, towering as high as 90 feet above the ground. From this vantage point, you can see for miles. Look west toward Fort Morgan, north to see some of Foley, and east to the Perdido Key and Pensacola area. The thrill of this view is nothing compared to the one you'll get soaring across Gulf State Park at Lake Shelby.

The zip line course is more than a mile in total, but each stretch of cable is about 380 to 1228 feet, carrying visitors over scenic views of the park's dunes, lakes and trails. As you fly, be sure to look out to the south and admire the sparkling Gulf waters lapping at the shore. Although the entire experience takes about two and a half hours, once you're actually flying, you'll be back on the ground again before you know it! 

Of course, if you don't feel like flying, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy Gulf State Park. The Gulf Adventure Center also offers kayaking and paddle boarding rentals for use on Lake Shelby within the park. When you stay at Gulf Shores beach house rentals, all of this excitement is just minutes from your doorstep!
