Tip Tops to perform at Hangout Reunion in Gulf Shores

Over 500 joyful attendees celebrated the first "Hangout Reunion" in August 2007 and now excitement is building for this year's event on Sunday May 31st from 5 to 10 p.m.

One of the Gulf Coast area's most popular bands, the Tip Tops, will grace the stage for an evening of FREE fun (no cover charge) at the 3rd Annual Hangout Reunion. The party is easy to find, just drive to the public beach in Gulf Shores and you are there at the "happening" place. In the 50's & 60's the phrase "meet me at the Hangout" meant dancing, arcades, pinball, root beer and spending time with good friends. Join us at the beach to relive those carefree days. Organizers of the event say "This is when fans and guests of the Hangout's past can come and get together, re-hash memories and pick up where they left off." Of course even if you have never been to The Hangout you can start your own special tradition of relaxed beach fun.

Take a break from day-to-day stress to return to simpler times at the best beach in the world. Meyer Real Estate has hundreds of nearby condos and beach houses in Gulf Shores or surrounding areas where you can kick up your feet and find peace of mind. Check out the HOT DEALS for a price break.

Fort Morgan Beach House Great for Couples & Families

Think it's too late to pick a beach house for your summer vacation? Well it's not too late at all. Consider a quaint four-bedroom, three-bath gulf-front cottage named "Out Front" which is located on the Fort Morgan peninsula near Gulf Shores, Alabama.

This spacious 1609 square-foot house features a large screened porch, barbeque grill, picnic table and porch swing for relaxation day or evening. Couples might consider "Out Front" a great option since it is equipped with two king-size beds, a queen and a double bed, plus a sofa sleeper. There are even two master bedrooms facing the waterfront and accessing the screened porch. Families will also love the amenities of this home and especially the fact that you are just steps away from the Gulf waters edge.

To save on this home and other resort properties take advantage of our Last Minute Memorial Day sale. Rent "Out Front" for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday for four nights for a total of $527 per day which is less than $66 per person per day for eight people (and the house actually sleeps 10).

Memorial Day is closer than you think (May 25) so call 800-213-9544 to consult with a reservation specialist or reserve online at and let the fun begin.

Meyer Real Estate Selects Gulf Shores Vacation Winner

For many reasons I love my job at Meyer Real Estate. One of those reasons is the privilege of awarding FREE vacations to winners of various promotions. Recently we completed Meyer's "B Our BFF" campaign to increase friends, fans and followers on our social network sites (Twitter, MySpace, Flickr, BLOG and Facebook). Believe it or not it's sometimes difficult to give away a vacation but it is always rewarding for me.

Our final winner of the week-four "B our BFF" drawing was Lee Ann Wyatt from Tuscaloosa, Alabama who happily told me she and her family "always use Meyer when they come to the beach." She is very excited to win three nights in a four-bedroom condo for this fall. But it took three tries to find someone who would respond to my message that they had won a vacation.

If you have not yet become a fan, friend or follower of Meyer Real Estate please do so and you'll be connected to the latest happenings on the coast and the most up-to-date info on HOT Deals and specials as they occur. Staying in touch gives you a great advantage for those spontaneous decisions to throw your shorts and sandals in a suitcase and head to the shore.
