What Not to Miss on a Beach Girlfriend Getaway
Gulf Shores & Orange Beach
There are two things that I am always up for: traveling with my best girlfriends and Alabama beaches. When you combine these, you have the perfect weekend getaway.
The Alabama Gulf Coast is the perfect place to relax on the beach, but it is so much more than just a beach destination. When I have traveled to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, I have experienced some of the best attractions that Alabama has to offer. From local fishing charters on the Gulf to a plethora of shopping experiences, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach has it all.
Spontaneity creates a great way to travel; however, if you are like us and have a limited amount of time, you have to manage it very well before it slips away. A quote comes to mind: “Time flies when you’re having fun” – and it goes even faster when with my girlfriends.
To help with the decision-making process, I have included a quick guide of the top 5 things that shouldn’t be missed when you and your girls hit the beaches of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
You’ll enjoy several types of shopping experiences in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, from souvenir shops to outlet stores. Those are all there for your retail therapy. Walking around The Wharf, you’ll find everything you would need, from shops to entertainment and, of course, those mid-morning cocktails to get your day amped up for beach life.
A short drive from the beach is the nearby Tanger Outlet Center. With 100+ name-brand stores, it will definitely require a couple hours to walk around.
Who doesn’t like a trip to the beach, especially on Alabama beaches that boast 32 miles of pristine white sand for you to sink your toes in and relax by the cool rolling water?
If you are interested in taking up a new activity, there are a wide range of rentals available for your sporting pleasure, ranging from stand-up paddleboarding to kayaking, and even charters for dolphin and sunset cruises. It’s the perfect spot to combine adventure with relaxation.
