When I left my house in Mobile around 10:30 in the morning, I was hoping to beat the traffic through the tunnel. But, I was too late.
An hour and a half later, I drove over the toll bridge to Orange Beach and spent another 30 minutes trying to find a parking spot.
Finally, I made it to the beach….along with thousands of other people!
Memorial Day is typically the busiest beach holiday followed by the 4th of July and Labor Day. Tens of thousands of vacationers will spend the extended weekend on Pleasure Island.
Those who don’t mind the crowds or the traffic soaked in the warm weather and sunny skies all weekend long.
