the main strip?

I have been to gatlinburg, pigeon forge, and panama city beach years ago and in these areas there is a main strip where you can park and walk the strip and check out all the attractions and shops etc etc. Is there a main strip in gulf shores where you can stay in a hotel and be able to walk the strip to check everything out?

Thx ahead of time, junktruck

No, not really. GS/OB is like none of the above. Certainly not Gatlinburg! Here you drive to the shopping venue and park. Basically the area is a long line of condos with a few restaurants along the line with some of the restaurants and shopping at what we call the "T" on this forum to describe where 59 hits the gulf and 182. Use google maps to see this.

Look at the local entertainment paper for ideas--http://mulletwrapper.net/

You will need to get out in your car for most activites. If you stayed near the "T" you could walk to several restaurants and souvenier/beachwear shops
