When you think of an ideal tourist destination, images of high rises, crowded restaurants, and souvenir stores around every corner may spring to mind. Don’t get us wrong, those classic beach icons make for a vibrant vacation destination, but sometimes you need more of an escape. Enter Fort Morgan. Located on the peninsula just west of the Gulf Shores, this community is the sleepy beach town of vacationers’ dreams.

Still on the Grid

After a day of playing on the beach, the little ones are going to want to curl up and watch Moana, and that Netflix isn’t going to stream itself! Luckily, the area of Fort Morgan isn’t so isolated that you’re beyond civilization. Guests have no issues with cellphone reception and most homes are equipped with WiFi!

Traveling down Highway 180 (which the locals refer to as Fort Morgan Road), vacationers find gas stations and convenience stores, a pizza joint and seafood restaurant, and an award winning golf course. Plus, Gulf Shores and all of its attractions are only a few miles away! It’s the quiet destination you desire with all of the amenities of a modern day beach town!

Dog-friendly beach houses aren't hard to find in Gulf Shores


For some, Rover is as much a part of the family as their first born son and leaving either behind while the rest of the family lounges on the beach seems pretty unfair. Since Fort Morgan’s beaches are privately owned, dogs are allowed on the beach. Individual owners, of course, can state whether or not they want to allow pets in their homes.

Choosing a pet-friendly beach rental doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style, comfort, or cleanliness. These homes all allow dogs and are just as luxurious as their non-pet friendly counterparts:
