Top Ways to Start Planning Your Spring Sportcation
Don’t delay. Plan your spring sports trip today!
Gulf Shores and Orange Beach hosts hundreds of sporting events annually, drawing many travelers just for the competitions. While there is plenty to keep you busy while you’re here (or intentionally un-busy, if that’s more your thing), it’s never too early to start planning your next sports trip.
Plan to Stay
Condos can book up quickly, so the earlier you look for your ideal spot, the more likely you are to find something that checks all your boxes. Gulf-front views? Check. Lazy river? Check. Room to sleep the whole team? You can find that, too. Just make sure you book ahead. For those who return annually for their games, it’s not unheard of to book the same condo or house for the next year even before checking out! Returning to the same place year after year resonates with many of our guests. We’d love for you to consider Gulf Shores and Orange Beach your home away from home.
Plan for Play
It goes without saying that you want to be sure you’re registered for your sports event and have received all the details ahead of time. So when you’re the one in charge, you’ll be relieved to know that the Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Sports Commission offers several services to plan and market your event! Get started by taking a look at our numerous sports facilities. In the meantime, sign up for our Sports Shorts email newsletter to stay up to date on what we’re offering. Our handy Planner Toolkit will help you get started, so feel free to reach out and connect when you’re ready!
Plan for Food
Our vetted Sports Commission restaurant sponsors offer everything from on-the-go dining to team-friendly, in-restaurant seating. Need guidance for picky eaters and/or those with dietary restrictions? We can help meet everyone’s needs. With so many delicious options, you’ll want to browse ahead of time to determine which restaurants are a must-visit. But be warned: This is not an easy task when the food and the views are this competitive!
Plan for Fun
Last, but certainly not least, you’ll want to plan some informal activities for your team. Consider doing some exploring via a deep-sea fishing trip, enjoying the adrenaline rush from riding waterslides and ziplines, or discovering great shopping. You can easily fill your days with all kinds of new experiences.
It’s never too early to start planning your spring sportcation. If it’s already spring when you’re reading this, remember that now is the time to think about planning ahead for next spring.
