Sometimes life gets in the way and romance gets put on hold for work, kids, sports and other things. To make planning easier, we have a few suggestions that are perfect for couples planning a Gulf Shores and Orange Beach getaway.
Where to play. A sunset cruise is highly recommended for couples who want a unique beach activity. Charter a private sailboat or share a trip with new friends. Breathtaking sunsets over the water make sailing in the Gulf of Mexico one of the most romantic activities available. On many charters and cruises, you can bring a bottle of wine or champagne. Do something fun or different like making fizzy bath bombs together at specialty shops including Harmony Creek Farm. Treat each other to an adrenaline-pumping experience aboard an air trike with Beach Flight Aviation or glide through the water on your own, personal watercraft like Orange Beach Cat Boat Tours.
Where to dine. Toast your love over a dinner to remember. Voyagers at Perdido Beach Resort offers authentic coastal cuisine with a spectacular Gulf view. The intimate setting, seasonal menu and award-winning wine list make Voyagers a great choice for dining. For more options for special occasion dining, visit our Fan Favorites directory.
