Plan a Family Spring Break on Alabama's Beaches

When the backpacks get too heavy and the homework gets too much, spring break can’t get here fast enough.

Take a break from the books and plan a spring break vacation on Alabama’s family-friendly beaches. With 32 miles of white-sand beaches, you’ll find plenty of room for your family to stretch out and enjoy downtime of easy spring days and memory making.

When you’re making your plans, consider your family’s vacation style. Do you prefer a quiet and secluded stretch of beach? If so, Fort Morgan is a great spot to consider. The Fort Morgan peninsula is a short drive from Gulf Shores. Here you’ll find beach houses and a sprinkling of condos.

You can vacation along the Gulf of Mexico, Little Lagoon, Bon Secour Bay or Mobile Bay. You’re still only a few minutes from restaurants, shopping and attractions.

If you like to be in walking distance of restaurants and attractions, then Gulf Shores may be the beach for you. You’ll find many options for Gulf Shores condos and beach houses just a quick walk from public beaches, as well as popular restaurants and attractions. Those who like a mix of seclusion and close proximity to attractions may lean toward a spring break vacation in Orange Beach.

Beach Rules

From March to April (during Spring Break Vacations), beaches within the Gulf Shores city limits are alcohol free. In efforts to maintain the Alabama Gulf Coast’s family-friendly atmosphere, no alcohol may be possessed or consumed on beaches during this time.

To ensure your family has the best break from the books possible, be sure to familiarize yourself with the Leave Only Footprints beach rules. All beach gear, including tents, chairs and toys, must be removed from the beaches within one hour after sunset each night. Beach gear left overnight will be removed by beach patrol.
