A Winter Wonderland Right at the Beach

The Gulf Coast is known for its sugar-white sand beaches and crystal clear water and not usually for being a winter wonderland. But, that reputation may be changing slightly. Children and adults visiting Orange Beach this month are being treated to a

special activity typically reserved for those visiting colder climates: ice skating!
A 40' by 60' ice skating rink was constructed at The Wharf in November for the holiday season. Hundreds of people have already raced around the rink, which is kept cold by tubing coils that contain a special freezing agent. Guests can cruise the rink for $8 and skates are available for those who don't have their own.

Visitors to Gulf Shores & Orange Beach now have the best of both worlds – beautiful sandy beaches with great weather and a winter wonderland of activity. But, the winter wonderland won't last long, so make plans now to visit!

There are plenty of other Gulf Shores & Orange Beach holiday activities to keep you busy after you whirl around the ice skating rink. For the latest events, visit the Calendar of Events.
