Crowds flock to Alabama beaches for Memorial Day weekend

GULF SHORES, Alabama -- Tourism experts in south Baldwin County were expecting a rebound for Memorial Day weekend, and that appeared to be the case Sunday, as the public beaches were crowded under clear skies and with warm temperatures. Some tourism experts were predicting possible record numbers for this weekend, given the large crowds that packed the beach last weekend. Gulf Shores Councilman Steve Jones said crowds often build around the late-May holiday weekend, with word-of-mouth advertising passed from tourist to tourist.
