Discover Unique Things to Do in Fort Morgan, AL

Tucked away on Mobile Bay sits Fort Morgan, a quiet beach community filled with sandy beaches, delicious restaurants, and exhilarating activities. Staying at a vacation rental from Beachball Properties puts you close to some of the best things to do and see during your getaway to Fort Morgan, AL.

A Checklist of Fun Fort Morgan Activities and Attractions

Whether you’re hoping to try a new activity or visit a piece of history, there’s something for everyone in your group.

  • A visit to this Gulf Coast community isn’t complete without a stop at the historic Fort Morgan. Tour the fort built on the eastern side of the island during the 1800s.
  • Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge is a must if you have any beach lovers or nature enthusiasts in your group. During your visit to this 7,000-acre refuge, keep your eyes peeled for the animals that call it home. Other popular activities include fishing, boating, and walking nature trails.
  • Learn how to become a world-class sandcastle builder with Sand Castle University. Your instructor and their sand tools will meet you at the beach to show you how to create unique sculptures. You can select from two different classes: one focused on the basics and one advanced building.
  • Take the Mobile Bay Ferry from Fort Morgan to Fort Gaines on Dauphin Island. Take in views of these historic forts as you enjoy the 40-minute ride between the two locations. Once you’ve arrived at Dauphin Island, you have a whole other set of fun activities and attractions to select from.
  • Rent a bike or lace up your hiking boots and explore the Fort Morgan Road Trail. The 11-mile round trip trail is one of the best free things you can do during your stay.
