Unique Fall Adventures
In Gulf Shores & Orange Beach
Everyone has a good idea of what they want to do during a summer beach vacation—beach, pool, repeat. However, fall on the Alabama Gulf Coast is the ideal season to explore different avenues of fun and adventure, and we’ve rounded up a great list of options to get you started.
Explore Gulf State Park by Segway
Explore the natural beauty of Gulf State Park on a Segway tour through the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail. Certified operators with Coastal Segway Adventures begin each tour with a safety lesson and practice ride. Riders must be at least 12 years old, and a signed waiver is required. It’s an exciting way to look for native wildlife, including eagles, tortoises and even alligators and explore the wonders of the park. Take in the peaceful lakes and lush greenery on a Segway for a new kind of adventure.
Get Wild at the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo
The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo in Gulf Shores is the first ZAA-accredited zoo in the country and is home to dozens of unique, wild animals. If you’ve ever wanted to pet a sloth or hang out with a lemur, you can fulfill your dreams here as this fabulous zoo offers up-close animal encounters. The zoo also boasts a giraffe feeding station, a large playground, a zipline, and lots more fun. Don’t miss dining at the trendy Safari Club, the state’s first full-service, green-certified restaurant with delicious salads, exquisite plates, wood-fired pizzas, seafood, and a full bar.
