Since its creation, the council has identified objectives to better tourism opportunities and promotion for our region. These include:

  • Promote the entire region as a travel destination;
  • Create a regional brand that identifies diverse attractions along the Gulf Coast;
  • Advocate for improved infrastructure to link the communities and attractions for easier travel;
  • Identify voids in events and activities and ways to extend the tourism season beyond the typical Memorial-to-Labor Day period.

The council is excited to continue working with Visit Coastal Alabama to promote events and activities along our beautiful coast.
