Mixing it up during a coastal getaway
When you think of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, where do your thoughts go?
Do you think of a fishing trip on the back bays or in the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico? What about a round of golf with a warm Gulf breeze? More than 32 miles of beautiful white sand are also a big draw. There are hundreds of reasons to choose a coastal Alabama family getaway.
The Alabama Gulf Coast is well known as a fishing hot spot. World-class marinas, fishing charters and high-profile tournaments draw anglers to the area from far and wide. As much as we love fishing, there is always a little extra time for other activities.
Plan a day for the links if you enjoy an outdoor adventure on a manicured golf course. You’ll find more than 200 holes along Alabama’s Gulf Coast. Play on courses designed by golfing greats Arnold Palmer, Jerry Pate and Earl Stone. If you don’t want to pack your clubs, many courses offer rentals.
