 With beautiful beaches, friendly people, and great weather year-round, there are so many reasons to love living on the Alabama Gulf Coast. Imagine waking up and heading to the beach for a sunrise run before showering off and heading to your office at The Wharf which overlooks the marina and the Intracoastal Waterway.  Take some time to step away from the office to enjoy your lunch on the marina lawn or at one of the eight dining venues within walking distance of your office.  Pop out for a quick errand to one of the many retail establishments, also within walking distance, to pick up that forgotten gift for a friend.  You get the picture…
