Gulf Shores may be better known for its sand, surf, and sunshine, but you can’t forget about the shopping, either. Once you’ve dusted the sand from your shoes and gotten your tan on, head to one of the malls, shopping districts and boutiques dotting the area. You’ll find a range of souvenirs, from luxury items from your favourite brands to unique and kitschy bric-a-brac that you certainly won’t find anywhere else.

    Whether shopping for a gift for a friend back home or on the hunt for a one-of-a-kind treasure to call all your own, here are the best places to go shopping while in Gulf Shores.

    The Wharf is so much more than a mere shopping destination. A short drive from downtown Gulf Shores, the waterfront spot offers shopping from a mixture of both local and national brands, as well as a plethora of dining options (and drinks to go, so you can sip while you window shop).

    Beyond the shopping , you can check out a show at The Wharf’s amphitheatre or take an after-dark ride on the Wharf’s Ferris wheel. Keep your eyes on the destination’s event calendar; they always have something fun up their sleeves, whether it’s an ‘80s-themed costume event or wintertime shopping specials.
