This is our first post in this section of the website and we were thinking, what better way to start a category for fun in the sun, than to talk about the places on or just off of the beach.  We've recently gathered aerial video for some great spots in downtown Gulf Shores and Orange Beach and will start the first parts of this section by including posts from Waterville, the Hangout and the Track in Gulf Shores and Tacky Jacks, the Gulf, San Roc and Perdido Pass in Orange Beach, AL.
