Get a slow start to the holiday season – you’re going to want to pace yourself for all the bustle and madness that’s coming. Why not come on down to Fort Morgan for a little quiet before the storm? Located at the western tip of the peninsula, Fort Morgan is the perfect place to relax, recharge and regroup before the holiday season ramps up.
At Harris Properties, we have rentals with large gourmet kitchens that will be perfect for making that traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings for your family. This year may also be the year to start a new family tradition – try a low country boil or fish fry! The fully equipped kitchens in all of our rentals make it easy to keep everyone fed and to whip up plenty of snacks and popcorn for family movie night. And many of our rentals have large open floor plans that are perfect for larger gatherings, it’s so easy to gather everyone together for that holiday meal, movie night or a friendly family game night.
Or, if you don’t feel like cooking on your vacation, you can head on over to the ever popular Tacky Jacks’s or The Hangout (in nearby Gulf Shores) for a traditional holiday meal. After everyone has eaten their fill, roll them out the door for a refreshing walk on the beach. A simple stroll along the white sands and blue surf easily reminds us of everything we have to be thankful for.
Of course, you can enjoy all the usual beach activities (except maybe swimming and sunbathing) during the fall months. So bring your boat, kayak or paddleboard (or rent what you need from the local marina) and relish the solitude while you paddle along the coast enjoying the scenery. The kids will have plenty of space to spread out for those sandcastle building contests or volleyball games too. You can easily keep an eye on them from your rental’s deck or covered porch as they play in the sand and surf in front of your rental when you’re in one of our beachfront cottages.
If you love to fish or boat, we also have Fort Morgan property rentals with private docks waiting for you. And these docks aren’t just for boats; imagine sitting on the dock fishing the day away or laying back at night watching the stars! You can catch dinner, grill it up and dine out, without ever leaving the dock!

In October, Historic Fort Morgan presents Known Deaths & Burials, a candlelight tour through the historic masonry fort. Take one of their living history tours and you’ll appreciate how good we have things today. Be sure to make time to tour the entire historic Fort and its grounds. An Escape Room, picnic area, miles of beaches and a fishing pier are just some of the highlights you’ll find here on this historic peninsula. Plus, a hike through the nearby Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge in the fall is a birder’s dream come true. The Refuge is a major stop-over for migrating birds as well as being year-round home to some of the country’s endangered species including loggerhead turtles and the tiny Alabama Beach Mouse. The Refuge in the fall is a must-see for birding enthusiasts of any level.
