Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

I am talking about the “ultimate mancation” here, and the Alabama Gulf Coast has everything you’ll need to organize the next getaway for you and your buddies.

Whether you are looking for the ultimate adventure vacation or just a relaxing location for a few beers, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is a haven waiting to be experienced.

Golf Gulf Shores

Did you know that the golf course was the perfect spot to conduct business? They provide the ideal environment for you and prospective clients to work out a future deal! But more than that, a Gulf Shores golf course is a great place for bonding with your buddies. If you are heading to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to selection of championship golf courses.

From the challenging 27-hole complex at Peninsula Golf Club to the courses at Craft Farms, there are plenty of choices for all levels of golfer. Golfing with your buddies is more about the social experience than quality of golf (of course, if you’re like me, you’ll always want to shoot the best round for bragging rights). Enjoy a perfect day on the course with a few drinks and you’ll soon realize there is nothing more relaxing. Plus there is always the 19th hole waiting for you after you finish!

Perhaps a short nine-hole stretch would be appropriate, especially for the non-golfers in your party. The beauty of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is that the courses all cater to those who wish to play just a half round and enjoy the rest of the day on the balcony of the clubhouse, taking in the serene landscapes of Alabama’s Gulf Coast.

Orange Beach Red Snapper

Charter a Fishing Excursion

Orange Beach is THE destination if you are interested in adding a chartered fishing trip to your itinerary. Relax on the open waters as you soak in the Gulf Coast climate and try your hand at reeling in a bragging-rights-worthy catch.

From red snapper to blue marlin, the opportunities are endless. With more than 100 experienced captains ready to take you out into the Gulf of Mexico, be prepared to have the time of your life. Orange Beach charter fishing trips are available lasting from four hours to overnight trips.

Ready to really let your hair down and enjoy a bonding experience with the boys? Head over to the home of “live music and dead food,” also known as Live Bait Restaurant and Nightclub in Orange Beach, to entertain yourselves with a legendary karaoke performance. I think it’s safe to say when you are with your buddies, “What happens in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach stays in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.”

Fly-board Orange Beach

Ready for Adventure

If golfing or fishing is just a little too relaxing for that upcoming bachelor party you’re planning, add a little adventure into the mix and spice up the itinerary. Kayaking, parasailing, flyboarding and skimboarding are all readily available activities in these two beachside cities.

If you are still not convinced, try adding a zipline adventure. The Hummingbird Ziplines at the Gulf Adventure Center boasts six ziplines taking you up to 90 feet above the ground. If you’re a thrill-seeker, the zipline is a great adrenaline rush and may just prove to be the perfect tonic for the start of a guys getaway.

Fine Dining and Enjoying a Social Drink or Two

After a day of fun in the sun, it’s time to head out and sample the finest cuisine along the Gulf of Mexico. It’s all about the seafood – in particular, oysters – in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Whether you decide to dine at Cobalt or the Original Oyster House or elsewhere, you’ll never lack for available options.
