Rain on Alabama's Beaches

Plan B: Rain Delays and Your Beach Tournament

Occasional rain delays don't have to dampen your day.

Whether you’re waiting out the storm or your whole game is postponed, it won’t be a day wasted. The Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Sports Commission has teamed up with our sponsors to provide you with fun, food and relaxation during downtime.

Tanger Outlet Center in Foley AL

If the storm will blow through quickly, the Southern Grind at The Wharf is right down the street from the Orange Beach Sportsplex. Warm up with a spot of hot chocolate or coffee, or browse their curated gift shop.

Have more time to kill? Try something deliciously decadent at Brick & Spoon, named one of the Top 10 Breakfasts in the US by Travel + Leisure Magazine. They serve breakfast and brunch daily until 2 p.m. After breakfast, swing by the Tanger Outlet Center for great deals. It’s a quick drive by way of the Foley Beach Express. Academy Sports + Outdoors is on your way to and from the outlets, so if you’re in need of any last-minute gear or are shopping around for training equipment, stop there.

Family watching movie at theater

Once you shop ‘til you drop, head back into Orange Beach and refuel with lunch at Ginny Lane at The Wharf. Check out daily lunch and happy hour specials, plus Gulf-To-Table menu options. Or how about a movie? The AMC Classic Wharf 15 begins showing movies around noon, and the last showtime is usually between 6 and 7 p.m. Browse shops at The Wharf while you wait for your movie, or create a special keepsake at the Build-A-Bear Workshop. Top it all off with dinner and dessert at Cosmo’s Restaurant & Bar, with eclectic eats for every palate!

Alternate plan: enjoy condo amenities and watch the rainfall in your rental with a sweet deal through our lodging partners. If you’re feeling really brave, venture out for a snack from Rouse’s Market.
