Gulf Shores & Orange Beach
Family Beaches. Family Fun.
A beach vacation on the Alabama Gulf Coast is a family affair. Families have called Gulf Shores and Orange Beach their home-away-from-home for generations, and the tradition continues with you.
While our white-sand family beaches and clear Gulf waters beckon children to build sandcastles and teenagers to hone their skim board skills, parents watch and take photos as their family files memories away. With beach activities like volleyball, parasailing and boogie boarding, there’s plenty of fun for kids of all ages, from toddler to teen.
When you’re not soaking up the sun, amusement parks featuring go-kart races and miniature golf offer a fun way to spend the day. You can even get your adrenaline rush as you travel along the Gulf Coast’s mile-long zip line course or rushing down a waterslide. A beach vacation is also the perfect time to introduce your family to charter fishing in Orange Beach, home to the country’s largest artificial fishing reefs.
Whether you have a 6-year old or 16-year old, family-friendly restaurants in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach offer something for everyone. From great eats to play areas and live entertainment, your options are as varied as your children’s tastes.
Come make memories to last a lifetime. Experience a tradition like no other when you spend your family vacations on Alabama’s white-sand family beaches.
