Experience Nature in the Alabama Outdoors
Need a break from the city lights, mega malls and suburban sprawl? Get in touch with your wild side on Alabama’s Gulf Coast, where schedules take a back seat to sunsets, to-do-lists aren’t nearly as important as tide charts and each change of season brings something awe-inspiring.
If you’re looking for land-based adventure, take a hike along the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail, which winds through the rich flora and fauna of Orange Beach all the way to the pristine beach of Gulf State Park. A series of bikeways offers the chance to investigate things up close and get your exercise at the same time. Grab your binoculars and head out on the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail where you’re likely to spot everything from the tiniest hummingbird to the statuesque Great Blue Heron.
Want to explore the coast from a less landlocked position? Plenty of water-based activities are waiting for you. Rent a kayak and paddle your way through serene back bays. Watch dolphins frolic as you learn all about their habitat on a dolphin sightseeing cruise. Or learn how local shrimpers catch the prized crustaceans we all love.
