Plan Your Sporting Event During Your Holiday Stay on Alabama’s Beaches

All I want this holiday season is a wintery-white Christmas!

Ask and you shall receive here in Alabama! Well, sort of. Trade the snow for the sugary-white beaches of the Gulf Coast. They are nothing short of magical during the holiday season. If you’re a sports planner, arrange a December getaway to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach for some sand, surf, shopping and a scheduled site tour for your upcoming event.
