Foley, the city where Beach Express RV Park is located, tends to be a quieter and peaceful town that offers a number of things to do. Foley provides activities that many people can find enjoyment in, such as amusement parks, beaches, and deep-sea fishing. Many of the towns in the area that are established on the edge of the water have been known for being fishing towns that date back many years ago. For this reason, there are many seafood restaurants and tour companies that can take guests out into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
There are a number of shopping centers in the area as well. One that is mentioned by name on the Beach Express RV Park website is The Pelican Place at Craft Farms, which has a number of stores inside, as well as a movie theater. The Tanger Outlets are another shopping mall that is noted for the dozens of stores that can be found. Also in the area are several different bays, such as Bon Secour Bay and Mobile Bay. Since it is so far south in Alabama, it is not a very long drive to reach the neighboring states, Florida to the east and Mississippi to the West. Regardless of where visitors go, it can be relatively easy for them to find outdoor and recreational activities.
Beach Express RV Park was founded about 12 years ago in 2009.
