Traveling to Gulf Shores? Use this tip to arrive faster.

Traveling to our coast for fun in the sun can present some traffic challenges during peak times such as summer season, Shrimp Festival, and concert weekends.

So how do you avoid long delays when your assigned check-in location for your Meyer Real Estate vacation rental is the Meyer office at 1585 Gulf Shores Parkway? Here's our insider tip: Take the FOLEY BEACH EXPRESS! Now you may be saying to yourself that the Foley Beach Express, which you enter just south of Summerdale, is fast access to to Orange Beach and Perdido Key - and it is. However, this route can also speed your access to Gulf Shores. The TRICK is to exit the express highway at the last exit before the toll bridge and take County Road 4 back to Highway 59. When you see the toll bridge ahead, just follow the signs to County Road 4 and you'll be back on Hwy. 59 adjacent to Publix in no time. Then you'll turn left, cross the Intracoastal Waterway bridge and arrive in Gulf Shores much quicker than the normal Highway 59 route. Of course you can reverse this route if you encounter heavy traffic as you depart the island.

Drive safely. We look forward to seeing you at the beach soon.
