Visited Alabama Gulf Shores Beach

Saturday, April 13, 2024

If you want that white sandy beach and blue ocean but don't want the crowd of Panama City and Destin, Florida come to Gulf Shores. We typically visit Florida beaches at least twice a year, but  this time we decided to split up and go somewhere new this time. At this point in our trip we stop over to Gulf Shores Alabama. 


Gulf Shores Beach is absolutely beautiful. If you are a beach lover you will be so happy at Gulf Shores Beach. The sand is white and sugar fine. There are so many spots you can find to chill and relax and enjoy the sound of the waves. We parked across the street in a public lot. There are nice spots to shower off the sand and salt. There are also several large sails which provide shade if you are like me and have to watch that toasty Gulf sunshine. There are lots of bars and restaurants along the beach. We were surprised to find reasonable prices for very delicious seafood.

Definitely a beautiful beach. It was cool on this day, but we needed to see the ocean and make memories.

Visiting Steamtown National Historic Site

Saturday, February 10, 2024
We were amazed to see how detailed this train museum is. It includes a working roundhouse, refurbished cars and engines, and knowledgeable rangers. Across the way is a trolley museum. We didn't come on a train ride day unfortunately but the machine shop guided tour and self guided yard tour took up a lot of our time. So much to see if you are a fan of railroad history. There was no entrance fee which is a plus.
The Steamtown National Historic Site,  is located in downtown Scranton, PA. Here you can learn the history of the steam engine, see the giant locomotives that helped expand our nation, hear the sensational true stories of those that rode, worked for, and built these beautiful machines.
