A Style Guide to Finding Just the Right Vacation Fit for You
Vacations are meant to rejuvenate, entertain and inspire.
But, oftentimes planning trips can be just the opposite, especially if you’re traveling with a group. Having to choose the ideal area, activities and lodging options can take time, and those choices can make or break your trips. (Have you ever tried to fit nine people into a two-bedroom condo? Talk about a long trip!)
The beach is always a good choice to travel to. Specifically, Alabama’s white-sand beaches are always a good destination. You’ll find some of the best beaches in the country and activities galore for any group of travelers. But, planning your vacation doesn’t stop when you choose a destination. Depending on your group’s desires, size, and length of stay, this vacation style guide can help you decide and plan a getaway to talk about…for all the right reasons! So, what’s your vacation style?
A trip to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is great for reconnecting. Lounging on the beach can be a great way to refresh yourselves and your relationship. You can also visit a luxurious couples spa or take a ride in a hot air balloon to make your experience one of a kind. (As long as you aren’t afraid of heights, that is!)
For couples, choose a Bed and Breakfast. They provide privacy, a romantic and small-town vibe, and often have exclusive amenities such as full meals and secluded areas that can’t be found with other accommodations. An Orange Beach hotel may also be the vibe you’re looking for. Be near the beach’s best restaurants, charter fishing and dolphin cruises. Many hotels in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores also offer complimentary continental breakfast and some even boast a beachfront balcony.
If you travel with your family in tow, you’ll have many needs to fill and accommodations to make. Activities such as miniature golf or wildlife experiences are affordable and fun for the entire family.
Consider booking a Gulf Shores or Orange Beach resort. Resorts offer a full selection of amenities and activities that make vacationing with a large group easy. Condos also feature kitchens, in-room laundry facilities and multiple bedrooms. It’s your house, but at the beach! Plus, organized kids activities, dining options and excursion bookings are available onsite. That means less time entertaining the kids and more time relaxing. That’s the perfect combination!
