Christmas in Gulf Shores

If you feel as I do you can't believe the calendar or the buzz that Christmas is only a few days away. I'm not really certain where the time went this year but without a doubt 2007 is fast approaching.

Christmas in Gulf Shores will be even more exciting than ever before this year because of new entertainment venues, shopping and restaurants. It has been my pleasure to stay in my comfortable surroundings at my home just 10 miles from the beach and watch all these improvements take place around me. Retail and outlet shopping that I would have in the past traveled either to Mobile Alabama or Pensacola Florida (or further) to find is here in my own backyard. Restaurants that were first famous in Destin, Florida are here now too. And even more shopping and dining opportunities are coming soon. The Wharf continues to add more retail and dining and Colonial Pinnacle at Craft Farms is making great strides in their construction with plans to open in spring. Target and Cobb Pinnacle 14 Theatres are already open and handy for me (between my work and my home).

The development I'm enjoying seeing is also attracting more visitors, which is a wonderful boost for our resort area. So even though it's hard to believe Christmas is almost here for me the holidays will be enhanced by the new opportunities to shop, dine and have fun in Gulf Shores.
