Summerdale is a small, rural community in Alabama, in south-central Baldwin County. Its size makes it the perfect place to begin exploring the state of Alabama.

Fort Pickens Aquatic Preserve is a 34,000-acre haven for migrating birds that features salt marshes and more. The salt marshes are a distinct form of plant life, occurring in the areas between high and low tides, but only where the motion of the water is not too intense; the colors of the plants range from green to gray and brown. Photographers will have a ball capturing the landscape and its vegetation, as well as the variety of bird species on display. The preserve is located in Florida State but is an easy 50-mile journey in the Summerdale RV rental.
Across the state line in the opposite direction, near Moss Point, Mississippi, Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is another type of preserve protecting and documenting wetlands and bayous. The preserve works with endangered species of fish and shellfish, and exotic water-based plant life. It is composed of estuaries, where salt water from the ocean mixes with fresh water from lakes and streams in a sheltered environment (for example, where a low tide creates a pool of water not influenced by ocean tides). The visitors center is open to the public.
Closer to Summerdale, Fairhope Municipal Pier is an excellent venue for fishing or just enjoying the views; it is a good place to view pelicans up close. There is a seafood restaurant nearby where visitors can grab a quick meal, and also a public art trail where visitors can get a glimpse of the work done by local artists. Graffiti, once condemned as an eyesore, has become more widely accepted and much more intricate and well developed as a result. It can often reflect the hidden personality of a city and Summerdale's contribution to this art form is no exception. Using your Summerdale motorhome rental as a photography blind is a good way to get the pictures you want, of pelicans and whatever else catches your eye.

Summerdale is a good place to visit for those who can't get enough of museums. This small town has museums focusing on medicine, history, railroads and spear hunting. There is an art center in nearby Foley that showcases the private canvas work of local artists; some of the work here is also available for purchase. Keep your Summerdale travel trailer rental nearby so you won't have to carry around your art purchases as you continue.
There are numerous gift and specialty shops where visitors can pick up souvenirs and presents for family and friends back home. There are theme parks where guests can see something slightly different, and there are also tours of the city and surrounding area done by horseback, tour bus and other modes of transportation. You could create your own self-guided tour in your Summerdale rental RV; with a bit of imagination, anything is possible.
Night falls and thoughts drift from excursion to eating; there are a few restaurants within the city limits but for a wider selection, visitors will need to travel a bit farther to nearby cities. Summerdale's options are interesting, though, and all locally owned and operated; there is an all-day breakfast diner, a Mexican establishment and a barbecue for those who like their meat with a vegetable garnish. Farther out, you have your choice of the usual chain restaurants for something familiar or a selection of cuisines such as seafood, Cajun and creole, pizza, Italian, Chinese, Caribbean and Jamaican, Mediterranean (Greek and Turkish), fried chicken and more.
Another way to sample the local cuisine is to grab some groceries and prepare a home cooked meal in your luxury RV rental in Summerdale.
