The Alabama Gulf Coast has some of the most beautiful beaches in the United States.
Heritage Shores is located at the end of a scenic drive 17 miles west of Gulf Shores and 3 miles east of Ft. Morgan, Alabama. Heritage Shores is surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico on the south and Mobile Bay on the north. By water, Heritage Shores is only 40 miles from the coasts of Mississippi and Florida. With over half the peninsula reserved by the government, this is some of the best property left on the beach. It is unlikely the peninsula will ever be overbuilt like some of the surrounding beach communities.
By Car: Heritage Shores can be reached from major transportation routes, including Interstate 65, Interstate 10, U.S. Highway 98, and U.S. Highway 90, all of which intersect with Alabama Highway 59. Highway 59 South intersects with Highway 180 West which ends at Ft. Morgan.
Heritage Shores is connected westward via the Mobile Ferry, which links Ft. Morgan to Dauphin Island. Highway 193 North from Dauphin Island intersects Interstate 10 only six miles West of Mobile, Alabama and eighteen miles east of Mississippi.
By Plane: Major airlines serve the Mobile Municipal Airport and the Pensacola Regional Airport. Both airports are within a one hour drive of Heritage Shores. Private and corporate aircraft are served by the fully equipped Jack Edwards Airport, located near the Highway 180 & 59 intersection in Gulf Shores.
Residents of Heritage Shores enjoy a subtropical climate, caressed by pleasant Gulf breezes. Year long mild temperatures, with warm summers and moderately short winters, makes Heritage Shores a place you never want to leave!!
