Top Team Activities During the Off Season
Milder temperatures during the off season in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach mean that some of the warm-weather activities may not be available. But those who want to stay active during their downtime will discover an abundance of adventure outdoors, by land or by sea.
Are you a nature lover? The woods and wetlands along the coast are a popular place to explore. You’ll be able to get a glimpse of the variety of flora and fauna native to the region. It’s a wonderful way to spend time with the kids after a sports event.
Want to walk, jog, run, or ride a bike? The Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail provides a serene setting. This paved trail system provides an off-beach experience of Orange Beach, Gulf Shores and the Gulf State Park. Nature buffs will delight in being immersed in the beautiful landscape, including swamps and old pine forests. You’ll be able to see the diversity of plants and wildlife indigenous to the area, such as butterflies, deer and alligators.
Is it your goal to get out on the water? Paddling out on the Gulf in a kayak allows you to catch sight of the spectacular scenery of Alabama’s beaches and get a closer look at the fascinating aquatic life. If you’re also an angler, opt for a fishing kayak.
Speaking of fishing, are you angling to reel in an offshore fishing adventure? Book a charter, and a boat captain will take you out to some prime spots to drop a line in the Gulf of Mexico. For those who may not wish to go far from shore – or those with small children – inshore charters are also available to catch dinner on a hook.
