6 Beach Attractions You May Not Even Know About
When I go to the beach, I look forward to the traditional activities - like playing in the waves, walking along the beach and relaxing in the sun.
I like traditional off-the-beach activities, too. You know the ones: miniature golf, go-kart racing, and fishing charters.
But, when I travel, I love to try new things, too.
In Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, there’s a lot to do that you might not expect. Check these out!
Guided Pier Walks
When visiting the Alabama Gulf Coast, add some education - don’t worry, it’s fun and free - to your visit with a guided pier walk at the Gulf State Park Pier in Gulf Shores. Knowledgeable staff will take you on a tour of the pier to share the biodiversity of the area, conservation efforts that have revitalized the shore and even introduce you to some of the local marine wildlife.
Whiskey Wreck Shore Diving
Snorkelers and scuba divers (beginning or expert) will enjoy diving the shallow waters 150 yards due south of Bahama Bob’s Beachshore Cafe. Explore the wreck of this 200-foot rum runner in waters only 20 feet deep. Scuba dive and open water diving students enjoy exploring this wreck that’s also suitable for night dives.
Escape from Mobile Point
Here’s a fresh twist on escape rooms.
Fort Morgan played an important role in the Civil War, and the escape room experience “Espionage at Mobile Point” takes you there. Imagine life in the summer of 1864. You’re a federal spy captured by Confederate soldiers. Unravel the clues. Find the map. Escape capture to win.
Based on real life history, this escape room experience is one you’ll remember for years to come.
