The Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Tourism released some impressive numbers on Alabama beaches for July.
Alabama’s revenue jumped 34.5 percent from their 2007 numbers to $69.8 million. In a related matter, retail sales for the month of July finished at $94.8 million, which was a 17.9 percent jump from their 2007 number of $80.4 million.
The overall figure stands at a 22.2 percent improvement for this past July compared to the same month in 2007.
All signs point to the region officially recovered from the BP oil spill that tarnished the shore.
