Father's Day Ideas
Gulf Shores & Orange Beach
Hit the links, head to the brewery, or take to the water with Dad this Father's Day in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach!
Want to give Dad a Father's Day to remember? It's easy when you're in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach! Just think about all there is for Dad (and family) to do on Alabama's white-sand beaches. We've got seven ideas to help you start planning.
2. Soar Above the Shore
Give Dad a bird's-eye view of the spectacular Alabama Gulf Coast with a flight in a gyroplane. He'll fly the aircraft with the help of an FAA-certified flight instructor from BeachFlight Aviation and experience the gift of a lifetime. He'll be outfitted with a headset, helmet, and windscreen before flying a loop around the beach. Choose from 20-, 40-, or 60-minute flights and dazzle Dad with a one-of-a-kind experience.
4. Golf in Coastal Alabama
Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are brimming with great golf courses that are not only located in beautiful settings but are also award-winning. In fact, three of our area's golf courses landed on Golf Advisor's Top 20 list of courses in Alabama for this year. Dad will love playing a few rounds while enjoying the coastal breeze.
6. Big Beach Brewing Company
Take Dad to Big Beach Brewing Company, a fun taproom and 10-barrel brewhouse in the heart of Gulf Shores. You'll join other craft beer enthusiasts at this indoor-outdoor alehouse featuring live music on the weekends. There are always 12 beers on tap, made in-house at the locally owned brewery. You are welcome to bring a picnic lunch or order food from the food truck on-site.
Orange Beach Inshore Fishing
Spend a few hours or an entire day fishing the back bays of Gulf Shores & Orange Beach, Alabama. Inshore fishing is great year round, and yields abundant catches like mackerel, trout, redfish, flounder and many other species.
