Get Out on A Boat
If you’ve visited the Alabama Gulf Coast before, you’re sure to have seen plenty of boats out in the water. Boating is a favorite pastime for many of our locals. For those traveling to our beaches with boats, there are launches scattered all across the island. Most launches enable you to easily access both the back bays and the Gulf of Mexico. If you don’t own a boat, fear not, because there are several boat rental companies in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Whatever your boating needs are, they’ll be able to provide you the perfect vessel for your trip.
Another popular event happening in March is The Wharf Boat & Yacht Show. From March 19 to the 21st, The Wharf in Orange Beach will host its annual multi-million-dollar display of boats and yachts. Attendees will also be able to view the latest technology in marine electronics as well as fishing gear.
Alabama’s Coastal Connection Scenic Byway
Experience everything the Alabama Gulf Coast has to offer along Alabama’s Coastal Connection, a National Scenic Byway. Driving along the byway, you’ll find sugar-white sand beaches, quaint downtowns, wildlife preserves, historic spaces and delicious local dining. It’s a great way to learn about our traditions, culture and what makes coastal Alabama a truly special place. And, because many of the attractions found on the byway are less populated and outdoors, it’s ideal for social distancing. The scenic byway website offers day-trip itineraries making planning easy for you and your family.
