These are some of the best beaches in the United States, so I know you’ll love them! You can plan to spend the entire day on the beach.
Start your morning in Orange Beach. There is public parking at 28273 Perdido Beach Blvd. but get there by 10 a.m. during the summer to find a spot. Be sure to pack your sunscreen, shades, and a good book to sit and enjoy the sights on the beach and listen to the waves crashing on the sand. Find more public-access beaches and parking information on the beach directory.
I always hit a grocery store on a budget-friendly trip and pick up grab-and-go sandwiches, wraps, or salads. Bringing a cooler and having a picnic on the beach is perfect for this kind of trip!
