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.
Due to Hurricane Sally on Sept. 16, 2020, some restaurants and attractions will be closed as they undergo repairs. At this time, we do not know the timeframe for all reopenings.
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!
Orange Beach Cat Boat Tours
What’s a cat boat, you ask? Great question! Cat Boats are compact catamarans with ergonomic, side-by-side seating and easy to maneuver controls that make it easy to operate and lots of fun.
With Orange Beach Cat Boat Tours, you get to explore the intracoastal waterway with a guide as you drive your own boat to discover the natural beauty of the area, and maybe even see a dolphin or two.
Sand Castle University
Sure, you know how to build sand castles with a plastic bucket, sea shells and twigs. But, what better place to learn how to build a sand castle like the pros do than at the beach?
The staff at Sand Castle University will bring all the tools you need to build an amazing sand castle and teach you professional techniques as your family creates its very own super castle! They even include a time lapse video of the experience so your castle can “live” long after the waves wash it away.
A zoo visit is a great outing for families with young kids. But, at Alabama’s Gulf Coast Zoo, even teens will want to go if you include a signature experience like cuddling with kangaroos, playing with lemurs, or hanging out with the tamanduas!
If you don’t know what a tamandua is, be sure to check out this awesome adventure!
