Your Guide to a Couples Getaway

Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

Warning! Warning! Ever get to that point in your relationship where you hear yourself saying things like this: “Everything he/she does annoys me!” “We're like ships passing in the night.” “It's been forever since we got away!” “We haven't been alone in ages.” These are red-alert words that couples utter when they are overdue for a getaway. Pay attention when you hear these phrases, and do something about it ASAP!

Romantic Dining at the Beach

Every relationship needs maintenance, like cars need tune-ups. Nothing helps jumpstart that connection like a relaxing beach retreat.

Here is the perfect plan:

  1. Pack a bag.
  2. Hop into the car.
  3. Type into your GPS: “Gulf Shores and Orange Beach”
  4. Fill up the tank and stuff your pockets with some of your favorite gas station road-trip snacks.
  5. Drive like the wind.

Now that you’re here, what should you do?
*Ahem . . . We’ll give you guidance on the activities Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have to offer. How’s that?

For the Couple Who Likes to Relax: Stay Put
Gulf Shores/Orange Beach has a variety of day spas to settle the mind and the body. Here is a list of handy options.

The Beach Club is a beautiful resort option for the couple who doesn’t want to venture anywhere. The onsite amenities include six swimming pools, full-service spa and salon, private beach, arcades, shopping, and a variety of dining options. Stay put, enjoy the beach, and reconnect.

For the Couple Who Likes to Adventure: Two Ideas
If you need to move and be on the go, ideas for adventure are everywhere.

Take a bike ride. From short jaunts to 20+ miles of trails, riding along the Alabama coast is one of the most breathtaking outdoor activities.

Flora-Bama Marina in Orange Beach, AL

Water activities are second to none in the area. Rent a pontoon boat, a kayak, a stand-up paddleboard, or a fast-paced jet ski and explore the waterways for the afternoon. We recently rented a pontoon boat at the Flora-Bama Marina. It’s located right next door to the Flora-Bama Yacht Club, the least fanciest yacht club you’ve ever seen in your life. You can order a pair of bushwackers here and watch the sunset while your toes tap in the sand to live music inches from the water.

For the Foodie Couple: Three Savory Spots to Reconnect
The list of romantic restaurants is long. We’ll recommend a few of our favorites.

  1. Voyagers: This fine-dining gem, with a view of the water, will require reservations. Try the ostrich carpaccio and the lionfish.
  2. Cobalt the Restaurant: Located under the Alabama Point Bridge, this restaurant has a patio overlooking the water to facilitate late-night discussions.
  3. Fishers at Orange Beach Marina: With an award-winning chef and accolades including being #5 on Southern Living’s Best Restaurants in 2017, this hot spot is a must to squeeze into your visit.

So, if you’re in need of a couples getaway, send this article to the person you love.
It’s an easy way to start the conversation about taking a much-needed trip. Ask them to look at the calendar and pick a date.

Happy reconnecting!
