Fort Morgan is a community located west of Gulf Shores along the Alabama Gulf Coast. In comparison to the nearby beach towns of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, this area is far more relaxed, laidback, and scenic. Throughout the Fort Morgan peninsula, you’ll find nature trails, family-friendly activities, gorgeous white-sand beaches, and fascinating historical sites. Whether you’re embarking on a romantic getaway, family reunion, or just need to escape for a bit, Fort Morgan is a one-of-a-kind Gulf Coast destination. Harris Vacation Rentals is proud to offer luxurious vacation rentals in Fort Morgan with all the amenities you need for the perfect beach vacation. No matter where you choose to stay during your trip, you’ll always be near the best Fort Morgan activities.   

If you’re considering treating yourself to a getaway along coastal Alabama, you should stay in Fort Morgan! This area is filled with fun and unique things to do. One of the most popular Fort Morgan activities is vising the Fort Morgan historic site. This fascinating fort was active during four wars (the Civil War, Spanish-American War, World War I, and World War II), but is most famous for its role in the Civil War Battle of Mobile Bay in 1834. Today, guests can visit this historic site, tour the fort, explore the gift shop, and gaze at captivating displays and exhibits. You can also roam the fort grounds, where you’ll have access to natural areas, boat launches, picnic tables, fishing piers, beaches, and more. Plus, this park is dog-friendly!    

Another favorite Fort Morgan activity is riding the Mobile Bay Ferry. This ferry is considered “the Gulf Coast’s Most Scenic Drive,” and sails across Mobile Bay, making stops at Fort Gaines on Dauphin Island and Fort Morgan at Mobile Point. In addition to riding the ferry, fun-filled Fort Morgan activities include enjoying waterfront dining at Tacky Jack’s, taking a class at Sand Castle University, hiking the Fort Morgan Road Trail, and watching picturesque sunsets.
