5. Condo Life is Pretty Darn Sweet
Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are very condo and vacation home-heavy. Staying in a beach house or waterfront condo is a great way to spend a vacation as a family. If you think you can’t afford it, you’re probably wrong.
The area is home to a variety of accommodations ranging from beachfront hotels to full-service resorts. All you have to do is plug in the lodging type, dates, number of bedrooms, and amenities you need into the lodging page. It will pull up the available options that meet your criteria, so you can browse until you find the perfect one. Your mileage will vary, and there are many different options available, but you can easily get a two-bedroom for a reasonable rate.
The condo we stayed in had two spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen and living area, smart TVs, WiFi, a full-size washer and dryer, and a balcony breakfast area. Oh, did I mention this was beachfront property? It wasn’t fancy - it was comfortable with little touches of luxury, but it was the type of place you feel comfortable. It was the perfect place to stay, as the beach was right there. It was a comfy place to relax when we weren’t at the beach. And isn’t that what vacations are all about?
Spring break and the beach are ideal partners. If a family vacation during spring break at the beach is in the cards for you this year, do yourself a favor and check out Alabama’s Beaches. They have the absolute best of everything.
