9 Great Tips for Planning a Family Beach Vacation
Gulf Shores & Orange Beach
Taking the family to the beach this season? Ready to soak up the sun’s rays and let the stresses of life melt away? Family beach vacations make up some of our family’s best travel memories, but getting there can be a little stressful.
Below are some helpful tips our family uses whenever we head south to our favorite turquoise waters and white-sand beaches. I hope these nine tips will make your planning process a whole lot easier, and maybe even save you some money!
Explore deals on the Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism website. Listing deals for every season, you’ll stay abreast of great opportunities to save on packages, local festival tickets, and accommodations.
Load up on the non-perishable snacks. Buy protein bars, trail mix, chips, fruit snacks, etc. Pack a cargo truck (slight exaggeration) full of those kinds of snacks and leave some in the car and in the beach condo. Not only will this help save you money, but it will tide the kids over in between visits to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach restaurants and during long waits between meals. Less-cranky kids is always a parent-win.
