1. Decide on a Date
The first step in planning the ultimate beach Friendsgiving is to find a date that works for everyone in the group. Many people spend the Thanksgiving holiday with family, so most Friendsgiving feasts happen a week or two before or after the official holiday. Of course, there’s nothing that says you can’t plan a fun Friendsgiving event on Thanksgiving - or at any other date of your choosing!
The good news is, November is considered a slower season on Alabama’s beaches. That means lower rates, fewer visitors, and more choices in accommodations. It may also mean shorter wait times should you choose to have your Friendsgiving feast at one of our great Gulf Shores or Orange Beach restaurants!
2. Pick A Place
Once you’ve chosen the perfect date, it’s time to find the perfect accommodations for your Friendsgiving event. There’s no shortage of vacation rental options across the area, from private beach houses to luxurious condos to all-inclusive resorts.
The format of your Friendsgiving meal may help you narrow down your best options. If you plan on dining in, a rental with a fully stocked kitchen and a large dining area may be the way to go. If you want to spend more time conversating than cooking, a spacious beachfront condo provides a convenient space right near the area’s best restaurants.
Whatever you choose, be sure it fits the size and budget of your group. Browse our Special Offers to find a great rental at a rate you can be truly thankful for!
