Ask natives and they will tell you that this is the best season to be on the Gulf coast. The weather is gorgeous, the fish are biting and we have lots of events to explore. In celebration of that, The Orange Beach Business Advisory Committee is sponsoring Market Days to showcase the wonderful island experiences that are available year round, such as biking, hiking, shopping, dining, boating and fishing.
Naturally, Orange Beach is a place for families to spend quality time together enjoying the great outdoors. Biking on our nationally recognized Wilderness Trail is accessible by renting a bike from one of our local bike shops. Orange Beach’s charter boat fleet is known for their world class fishing and it is a year round sport in the Gulf of Mexico. Dolphins play in our bays daily and the captains of our dolphin cruises at various marinas are available for families to come aboard and experience the sites in our bays.
You may be in town to enjoy local seafood during the National Shrimp Festival, get your heart racing at Thunder on the Gulf, or wrestle with nature during the IFA Red Fishing Tournament. While you are here, look for Market Days specials such as the few examples listed below.
• Shipp’s Harbor Grill chef tastings and marina packages
• Flippers free Eddie Boy’s homemade ice cream and real NFL grass for gamedays
• Tacky Jack’s “Kiss the Fish” event for Make A Wish Foundation

This is a great time to visit and Market Days events are a great way to enhance your vacation and have an experience of a lifetime. We look forward to seeing you!
