Best route

Should we use the Foley beach expressway or highway 59 for the best route into Orange beach and Turquoise place? The last time we used highway 59 it was quite congrated. Also does the folly expressway have a toll? Thank you!

Definitely the Beach Express and I think the toll is $3.00 for a car. Highway 59 is always a cluster between the volume of vehicles and traffic signals.

If you see a huge traffic jam heading east on Canal Rd after you cross the bridge, you can head west to GS instead and cut through Gulf State Park to get to Beach Blvd and then head east from there to TP.

Any suggestions for coming from Mobile. We are staying the weekend and want to go down to either Gulf Shores or Orange Beach to a public beach.
