Make Mom's Day Memorable with a Trip to the Beach
Why not turn Mom's big day into a weekend-long event with plenty of R and R in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach? There's plenty to do to show her your appreciation for all those years of love and care.
Start the weekend off with a sail aboard the WildHearts,
a 53-foot-long catamaran. Captain David Whidden and his crew ensure a fun and relaxing cruise. Bring a cooler of drinks and snacks and set sail for a good time of dolphin watching complemented by laid-back beach tunes.
After a morning sail, pamper Mom with a treatment at one of the area's spas. Whether she enjoys a massage, manicure, facial or a pedicure for flip flop weather, she'll appreciate the gesture and some time alone.
Round out the afternoon with a little beach time. There's nothing more relaxing than kicking back in a chair with your toes in the sand and listening to the waves. Pack a cooler with plenty of water and watch the afternoon light slip away to sunset.
