American Road Helps You Explore the Mystique That Occurs Wherever Sea Meets Shore

Jan 19, 2016, 10:17 ET from American Road magazine

DETROIT, Jan. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Surf's up in this "Muscle Beach Party" issue of American Road magazine, beginning with "Gulf Course," a tour of Alabama's Coastal Connection National Scenic Byway. On this journey along the edges of Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico are the origins of Forrest Gump's Bubba Gump Shrimp, the fish of the Dauphin Island Estuarium, the sea turtles of Bon Secour, and even the mysterious Catman. Oh, and what's a beach party without the cheeses of Elberta, Alabama?

Say "desert isle" or "three-hour tour" and most children of the 1960s will recall Gilligan's Island and the ever-popular question—"Ginger or Mary Ann?" American Road believes there is no contest, and an exclusive interview with Dawn Wells (aka Mary Ann) reveals why.

For even more fun in the sun, American Road departments chase Gidget down Hollywood Boulevard, sleep on the RMS Queen Mary, revisit old Cape May, and investigate the racing heritage of Daytona Beach, Florida.

Grab a beach blanket to enjoy the American Road Winter issue, and discover what American Road readers can do with a camera and a bit of shoreline inspiration in the "Back to the Beach Photo Contest."

Ahhh...a day at the beach. Pack flip-flops and a copy of American Road magazine. Then point a compass toward the coast. How about a little umbrella for that lemonade?
