Attractions on Alabama's Gulf Coast

There’s so much to do during a beach vacation along the Alabama Gulf Coast. The possibilities are nearly endless! Enjoy a dolphin cruise and see what nature offers in both the back bays and the Gulf of Mexico. Does fishing have you hooked? Boat rentals, Orange Beach charter fishing trips and pier fishing abound.

Is adventure your middle name? Try the zipline course at the Gulf State Park or travel to Historic Fort Morgan and relive the early days of our nation’s history. Make time for a trip to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo and get a first-hand look at the “Little Zoo That Could.” At the end of the day, there’s still time for a walk along the beach at sunset. Of course, you can always plan a day for just relaxing on the beach and digging your toes in the sand. 

Discover a whole new definition of fun when you stay and play in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach.

A note from the Director:Our two-story art gallery building has been closed in order to deal with a variety of structural issues and functional concerns. Given the age of the building (1923), this is not entirely unexpected.  All our artwork has been removed by our artists for safekeeping until we can reopen the building.  Exact construction plans have not been finalized, but as information becomes available, we will post it on our website and include in our next newsletters. Meanwhile, our Hot Shop and Clay Studio remain open Tuesday - Friday, 9:00-4:00, and Saturdays 9:00 - 2:00.  All hot glass blowing and clay classes will be available.  In addition, all our children's after-school programs will run as scheduled utilizing both our Coastal Arts Center campus and the Orange Beach Rec Center.Free admission.The Mission of the Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach is to enrich the experiences of both our community and our visitors through educational and interactive experiences and the exhibition of fine arts. The Center cherishes its place in the rich history of our area and promotes innovative ideas in the arts all in a warm and welcoming environment. Classes available.
