The transformation begins the moment your toes touch the sugar-white sand and you hear the sound of waves lapping the shore. Suddenly, you’re in a whole different state of connection. Life seems to slow down, senses are magnified and families are strengthened in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
The Alabama Gulf Coast’s 32 miles of pristine white sand beaches and sparkling turquoise water set the scene for memories that last a lifetime. There’s nothing more relaxing than playing in the sand and surf, but when you’re ready to venture off the beach, you’ll find a wide variety of activities and attractions for all interests and ages.
From water slides to zip lines to go carts and more, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Visit the zoo or historic Fort Morgan; take in the view from a Ferris Wheel, helicopter ride or parasail; take a dolphin cruise or observe the banding of migratory birds; play a round of golf; charter a boat for a day of fishing or dive Alabama’s first whole-ship diving reef; shop at the many specialty shops, boutiques or the nearby outlet center; and be sure to sample the fresh, local seafood at some of the area’s many restaurants.
With accommodation choices for all budgets, including beachfront condos, brand name hotels, private beach houses and full-service resorts, you’re sure to find the perfect place to make memories and reconnect.
