The best way to get there from the West.
Go down and catch the ferry, from Dauphin Island.
You will dock directly at the entrace to Fort Morgan.
If coming from the East, take Hwy 180W until it dead ends into Fort Morgan.

Amazing self guided tour that allows your imagination to run wild. Get your map when you check in and then walk in the steps of those who fought there. In a circular maze of rooms, stairs, cannons and curiosity.

The do have a gift shop, and some historical houses that have been turned to office/staff areas.
But the brick fort and it's labyrinth of questions is the best.
One of my teenagers actually said that the layout looked like the same map from a popular video game named "quake"
I told them a good fort and battle ground design is often repeated. Be prepared to climb steps, lots of steps, dark rooms and hallways that may lead to no where. I would suggest wearing tennis shoes, comfortable lightweight clothes, take a flash light, bottle of water, and camera.
