Alabama’s Coastal Connection National Scenic Byway
Beautiful beaches, authentic downtowns, wildlife preserves, historic sites and the freshest of seafood are all yours to enjoy on Alabama’s Coastal Connection, a nationally designated scenic byway.
The beaches of Alabama have been blowing minds for a long time, and yet somehow, they still seem to be the country’s best-kept secret. Their soft, sugar-white sands and warm, turquoise gulf waters combine to make the best beach experience you can have. And with fun family activities and incredible dining across the shoreline, you might find yourself planning your next trip before the current one is even over.
