Fishing, Shopping, Great Music Top List of Fall Activities
Summer crowds are gone, and our visitors may be fewer, but the sand is just as white and the water just as blue. That means Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are just right for a visit.
Come down and enjoy a less-crowded beach as you stroll along the water’s edge, relishing the peace and quiet that is fall along the Alabama Gulf Coast.
The fun didn’t leave with the hot weather and sunscreen. There’s so much to do year-round near Alabama’s white-sand beaches. Enjoy a dolphin cruise and experience the back bays and bayous of Baldwin County where nature thrives. Cruises are both educational and fun.
Take a hike down one of the seven trails at the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail. Ramble through six distinct ecosystems that take you through one of the last remaining maritime forests along coastal Alabama and along the banks of marshes where you may spy one of our resident alligators sunning himself.
Find a treasure from the Gulf. Go shelling – sometimes there are more shells along the beach during the fall. Or, you can discover an interesting one at one of the many souvenir shops along the beach highway. Either way, it’s fun to take home a natural treasure from your beach getaway.
Love great music? The Frank Brown International Songwriters’ Festival, Nov. 6 to 16, attracts some of today’s best songwriters. Have a listening-room experience at numerous Gulf Shores and Orange Beach venues.
