Mother's Day Beach Getaway
Gulf Shores & Orange Beach
There are so many ways to pamper Mom at the beach. Bring the whole gang and enjoy family time celebrating her, or plan a trip for Mom and one of her best girlfriends. No matter what you choose to do for her, she’ll experience a Mother’s Day to remember on Alabama’s beautiful beaches!
Mother’s Day isn’t complete without enjoying a special meal with the family. You can never go wrong with brunch, and our beaches are home to several fantastic brunch spots. If you want to treat her to a memorable Mother’s Day dinner, opt for one of the fine dining restaurants in the area. Be sure to treat her to something sweet with a box of chocolates from the Chocolate Corner or truffles from Kayden’s Candy Factory.
There’s no better way to say “I love you” than taking her on a cruise along the coastal waters. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach offer various options, including sunset and dolphin cruises.
Mom loves it when the whole family gets together for an outing. Book a pottery class at The Clay Studio or go paddleboarding in the back bays. If she’s a country music fan, get tickets to see Hank Williams Jr. at The Wharf Amphitheater on May 13, the Saturday before Mother’s Day. Whether she likes outdoor adventures or creative endeavors, the perfect activity is on Alabama’s beaches.
Another fun choice for Mom is making her own natural bath or shower products at High Cotton Bath Company at The Wharf. She’ll have a blast creating a custom lotion or bath scrub, as well as a fun souvenir to take home. Then let her get out and explore with a Segway tour through the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail. The knowledgeable guides will lead her through Gulf State Park and share details about the area. It’s a fun and unique experience and a great way to see the natural beauty of Alabama’s coastal community.
Finally, book her and her friend a ride on Surfside Shuttle’s Bushwacker Tour. This shuttle will take them to four local spots that serve bushwackers, so they can relax and enjoy sipping on their creamy drinks while getting a tour of the area.
