Five Reasons to Spend Thanksgiving on Alabama's Beaches
If sparkling sand, turquoise water, sunny skies and temperate weather aren’t reasons enough to spend your Turkey Day on Alabama’s white-sand beaches, here’s a few more, just in case you need to convince someone else.
First and best reason: It's relaxing! You don't have to host Thanksgiving Dinner at your house. Escape the work and bring the ones you love to a special place. You don't have to clean and cook for days on end while you're spending a hassle-free holiday in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
The second savory reason: You don't have to eat turkey (unless you want to). Having Thanksgiving at the beach opens options for dinner. You know, the Pilgrims didn't just eat meat for the first Thanksgiving feast. Seafood, available in abundance along the New England coast, was probably part of their feast, and it can be part of yours. Visit one of the many seafood markets in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach for fresh fish, shrimp and crab. You'll be giving and getting thanks for that meal!
Another great reason for spending Thanksgiving at the beach? You'll find great deals on Orange Beach accommodations and Gulf Shores lodging. Venture out along the shore for a quiet walk and soak up some sunshine and fresh air. Breathe deeply and feel the stress wash away. Check out our Gulf Shores beach houses and Orange Beach condo specials and reserve your place on the sand.
One of the best reasons to be on the Alabama Gulf Coast Thanksgiving weekend? The shopping! Our outlet malls, boutiques and souvenir shops offer an impressive variety of shopping choices that will fill your Santa sack with unique gifts.
The last best reason for spending Thanksgiving in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach? If you'd rather save the time you'd spend in the kitchen for enjoying the beach and your loved ones, you don't have to cook at all. Many beach restaurants offer Thanksgiving feasts fit for a king. Best of all? You don't have to clean the kitchen.
