Why go to Florida?
"All the beach, for less $"
Actually, I love Florida and I used to live there, but when we got the opportunity to spend spring break in Orange Beach, Alabama, just about ten miles from the Florida border, we took it. The same beautiful white sand beaches, relaxed atmosphere, great seafood, and tourist opportunities, with fewer crowds and for a lot less money. We really enjoyed our week here and will definitely go back. It was gorgeous. I write extensively about it and have many more pictures on my travel blog.
Highly recommended if you like that condo-on-the-beach experience!
