Educate your kids and yourself about the history of the American Civil War at Fort Morgan, an active location for the Civil and Spanish-American wars. During the battle of Mobile Bay, Fort Morgan soldiers used bayonets when they ran out of bullets and sacrificed their lives to improve the lives of future generations. Take a self-guided tour through the fort, exploring the way of life for these brave folks. Maybe your visit to the coast will coincide with a battle re-enactment - something you won't want to miss!

Kiva Dunes Golf Course

If Gulf Shores area golf courses are any indicator as to how incredible many of the other fairways across the Gulf Coast are, then it shouldn't come as a surprise that the Kiva Dunes Golf Course is just as impressive. As the number one-rated golf course in the U.S., this 18-hole course is considered by professional and amateur golfers to have some of the best and most unique greens in the world. 

Make it even easier to enjoy these and other Fort Morgan activities by staying at one of the many wonderful vacation rental properties along this narrow strip of land. Choose your location near the golf courses, nature trails or historical areas. Wherever you are, you'll be just steps from the famous white-sand beaches for which this area is known.
