Back to the Beach Before School or Bust

Gulf Shores and Orange Beach

“No more pencils, no more books . . .”

There’s something exciting about planning a trip to the beach, especially when it’s to celebrate no homework for a few months!

Beach Accommodations within Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, AL

School is out, summer is here and it’s time to take advantage of those vacation days you’ve been saving. There are only a few short weeks of summer, so get back to the beach before it slips away.

Accommodations available on the Alabama Gulf Coast cover all size groups, whether you’re traveling with the entire extended family or just you and a few. From Gulf-front to bay-front and everything between, you have a variety of options for where to park your flip flops. Those staying in the later summer months may even be able to take advantage of slightly lower rates on your Gulf Shores beach house or Orange Beach condo.

Celebrate summer by planning visits to some of the beach’s greatest attractions. Waterville USA is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and the young and young-at-heart will enjoy the lazy river and wave pool. The Wharf Amphitheater hosts the C Spire Concert Series with various well-known artists, including Kenny Chesney and Miranda Lambert. You can also enjoy family-friendly activities at The Wharf during its “100 Days of Summer.”

Free Summer Shows at OWA

Don’t miss the free summer shows at OWA, an amusement park in nearby Foley. Make plans to see the live, high-energy performances of the Power Skippers and other entertainment including a light show, an acrobatic stilt team and music by the OWA Party Band.

The Blue Angels practice along the Gulf Coast all summer long and well into the fall. It’s a jaw-dropping sight to see, and something you don’t want to miss. Normally, their practice sessions begin around 11 a.m., but their schedule adjusts for special occasions, holidays and weather.

Don’t let your summer be a bust – get back to the beach before the school bell rings. Download the Alabama Gulf Coast Vacation Guide to find places to dine, information on area attractions and beach accommodation options.
