Where 2 stay that's walkable

Making a trip to Gulf Shores and have never been there. I will be going with a couple other women all about 40yrs old. What we want is a condo on the beach able to walk to some restaurants, beachbars , ect. We enjoy a little nightlife . Nothing stuffy with a varied age group. What would be our best bet for an area in Gulf Shores or Orange beach? thanks

Pink pony pub has a live band , and is located right on the beach..

And located right next door is phoenix all suites hotel...Every suite is beach front with a full kitchen and a living room. They are just like a condo, but without any restrictions on the amount of days you can stay, you can stay one night or 50....

And there is several shops, and restaurants near by as well...

I want to also suggest Lu Lu's restaurant , they are awesome. Owned by jimmy Buffets sister and located on a canal, right in the midst of town..They have great mixed drinks, a live band, a sandy beach to play volley ball, and it sits right next to a marina...And the food is great,,,

Is has open walls to enjoy the wonderful gulf breezes, and is just like a party atmosphere...

here's a link for a restaurant guide for gulf shores..

Fordarama has some good picks there. If you're looking to walk to places, East Beach Blvd is probably your best bet. Otherwise, places like you mention are all within a 15 minute drive. You might also consider Tacky Jack's (good food and music), Live Bait (I'm not a fan, but they do have bands at night) and, of course, there is always the FloraBama, our most famous local dive.

We are locals (Pensacola, FL) and have stayed a couple of times at the Sand Dollar - although they are not fancy - they are very affordable, clean and within spitting distance of the beach road & Hwy. 59 intersection where the public beach is located. My kids love to run all over there, eat at the Sea 'n' Suds (almost directly across the street), have ice cream, get henna tattoos, browse the souvenir shops, etc. If you get bored and feel you HAVE to drive, Foley is right up the road w/ a huge outlet mall, movies, and restaurants galore.. Have fun!
