5 Things to Do for July 4th Fun on Alabama's Beaches
Break out your favorite flip flops for Fourth of July fun in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. There's always something to see and do in these two beachside cities, especially during a holiday.
Beach History. The Fourth of July festivities begin just a few days early with the Salute to American Independence at Fort Morgan on Saturday, July 1. From 9 am-3 pm, see weapons demonstrations, take special tours and witness artillery firings at the historic fort.
Fireworks. No Fourth of July is complete until you’ve watched a fireworks show, especially one held over the water of the Gulf of Mexico. Spend the day on Gulf Shores’ main public beach and stay for the fireworks at dark that evening. Be sure to bring plenty of water, snacks and sunscreen. Depending on where your Gulf Shores condo is located, you may even see the fireworks from your balcony.
Beach Music. Stick around for a few more nights and tap your toes to Journey in concert at The Wharf on Thursday, July 6. Special guest Asia opens the show.
