Tailgate at the Sand During Football Season
What’s better than tailgating outside your favorite college or pro football stadium? An away-game tailgate on the white-sand beaches in Alabama, of course!
It’s a fun and relaxing place to hang out with your home team as you prepare to watch the big game. It’s also a great alternative for those fans who prefer to watch on television instead of from a crowded stadium.
Will you come experience a different type of tailgating on Alabama’s beaches this football season? Show your team spirit by bringing out beach chairs, umbrellas and towels displaying your team logo. Have your own pre-game warmup with a friendly competition of sand football or relax to the sound of the waves.
Once it’s time for kickoff, watch the big game in the comfort of your beach condo or house, or cheer with fellow football fans at a local hot spot. Check our dining sponsor list for a selection of beachside eateries.
College football Saturdays will tie in to some major fall events hosted by the Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Sports Commission. Watching your football team play is a fantastic way to warm up or to wind down from the day’s festivities.
The fall season also means smaller crowds and shorter lines at area restaurants and attractions. You’ll have time left on the play clock to enjoy some downtime, whether it’s fishing, golf, shopping or just lounging on the beach.
With off-season lodging rates in effect, you may even want to extend your tailgating weekend by a day or two. It’s a great time to break for the white-sand beaches. Some rental companies offer additional discounts to draw people to the beach after the summer season is over.
