Labor Day Wishes from Gulf Shores

Have a safe and happy Labor Day. Our coastal area is anticipating good weather for the weekend and a big influx of visitors. I'll be in the mix when I visit The Wharf on Sunday for dinner and the Taylor Hicks concert at The Amphitheater. Come on down and check out the coastal experience if you want to have a good time.

Anytime you want to relax at the shore remember that Meyer Real Estate has the best selection of vacation rentals on Alabama and Florida's gulf coast. We have vacation rentals in beautiful beach homes and coastal condominiums in Dauphin Island, Fort Morgan, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama and Perdido Key, Florida.

American Idol Up Close in Gulf Shores

I must confess that I am an avid American Idol watcher each year. During 2006 when a contestant who had frequented our local Orange Beach and Gulf Shores clubs began to rise to the top my interest peaked. The fact that I am friends with his grandmother, who lives in Gulf Shores, made the weekly excitement even more special. When he won, oh my goodness, it was such a thrill. And now in just a few days I will see him perform on stage in Orange Beach, Alabama at The Amphitheater at The Wharf. By now you've guessed the object of my adoration - Taylor Hicks - who will hit the stage on September 2 for a memorable performance. It will be quite unusual to have Taylor Hicks back on his old stomping grounds, so to speak, now that he has made it big in the music industry.

Tickets are still available for the Taylor Hicks Labor Day Weekend concert. In fact, Meyer Real Estate has a great vacation rental special for Labor Day that includes four FREE Taylor Hicks Concert tickets. For more info call 866-948-3261.

Orange Beach Boasts More Fast Boats

The Thunder will roar this weekend (August 17-20) in Orange Beach when the Thunder on the Gulf powerboat racers hit the gulf waters. Prior to the race you can meet the racers at the dry pits at The Wharf in Orange Beach. There are VIP parties and other fun activities.

This is year six for the Thunder on the Gulf Powerboat races that are held on Sunday each year - this year's date is August 19. This year there are additional boats from the Pacific Offshore Powerboat Racing Association based in California. This group of 40 powerboats will race on Saturday (August 18).

It's not too late to head to the Alabama gulf coast and find accommodations at Fort Morgan, Gulf Shores, Orange Beach or Perdido Key. Plan to witness the astonishing power of 4800-plus horsepower engines that will exceed speeds of 170 mph on the six-mile track in the Gulf of Mexico. With two days of racing action you'll find even more entertainment. Another weekend delight happens because The Amphitheater at The Wharf will be hosting a fun concert on Friday, August 17 featuring the Doobie Brother and Peter Frampton.
