Gulf State Park Pier

The Gulf State Park Pier is the only public pier on the Gulf in Alabama and at 1,540 feet is the longest pier on the Gulf of Mexico. It has a concession area with indoor seating, bathrooms, a snack bar and tackle shop. There is a cost of a few dollars to access it whether you are fishing or just sightseeing but our campground pass got us in for free.  We attended a Guided Pier Walk/Tour with a park employee and learned a lot about it. The original pier was destroyed by Hurricane Ivan in 2004 and was replaced with this much larger and much improved version that was built to withstand a category 3 hurricane.

Did I mention it was a beautiful sunny 70 degree day?
