4th of July Traffic

Last year we left the Sunday after the 4th and encountered a nightmare of a traffic jam all the way to 65. We had hoped to avoid this day this year, but due to circumstances, will be leaving on Sunday again. Our condo is in Orange Beach. One of the worst jams was getting over the toll bridge on the Express. Do you think that we would have any better luck going thru Gulf Shores?

I hate to tell you, but traffic that weekend just is what it is. Tons of people all going the same direction. After you get across the ICW you might look at some of the County Roads to go north.

I would not go through Gulf Shores to avoid the traffic!!! It may not be that bad this year though since the 4th is on a Saturday. Most people come on Saturday and leave on a Saturday so this year the traffic will be staggered a bit. Of course that could make it worse :-) and more staggered, if you know what I mean....
