Work from here on Alabama's beaches

Work from Here on Alabama’s Beaches

Bring your office to the beach for the perfect weekday getaway.

Are you working from home for the remainder of the year? Consider bringing your office and family to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach this fall. We have pristine beaches, tons of outdoor adventures, the happiest of hours and gorgeous accommodations that make for luxurious office spaces. Below are four reasons we think you should come work from here this fall.

Top 4 Reasons to Work from Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

Kayaking in Orange Beach, AL

1. 32 Miles of Pristine Coastline

Our 32 miles of sugar-white sand beaches offer an inspirational backdrop that makes getting work done much more pleasant. Open up your windows or step onto your balcony and enjoy the feel of coastal breezes and the sounds of waves lapping. Not to mention, there’s nothing like using an afternoon on the beach as motivation to check everything off your to-do list before the sun goes down. 

2. Plenty of Out-of-Office Adventures

When five o’clock hits, there’s still a few hours of daylight to be enjoyed along Alabama’s shores. After eight hours of staring at a computer screen, you’ll be itching for a breath of fresh air and a destination excursion. If you can pull yourself away from the beach (we know…it’s hard!), there are tons of out-of-office outdoor adventures in the destination. Some of our favorites include:

If you’re working a half-day, we suggest booking a 4- or 6-hour fishing trip or a round of golf at one of the 15 courses in and around the area.

3. Happy Hours…Need We Say More?

It was no surprise to many of us that liquor sales have gone up in the past several months. We are living in such unprecedented times, and sometimes, a glass…or bottle…of wine is just what we need to unwind at the end of the day. In Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, you’ll find a countless number of restaurants and bars where you can experience the luxury of having someone pour YOU a drink. (Who else took that for granted prior to the pandemic?) Many of our restaurants and bars are waterfront and most have open-air seating available so you can sip easy knowing you’re staying safe and socially distanced. Whether you want to grab a craft beer at Big Beach Brewing Company, a bushwacker aka “adult milkshake” at the legendary Flora-Bama, or a prized Pinot Noir at one of the wine bars at The Wharf, happy hour awaits you along our shores. 

4. Opulent Accommodations = Your New Office

One of the bright sides of 2020 is that many of us are able to work from just about anywhere as long as we have internet access. Why not work from the penthouse of a hi-rise condo, in the quiet lobby of a beachfront hotel, on the balcony of a private beach home or the porch of a cabin overlooking a freshwater lake? With amenities such as complimentary WiFi, fitness and business centers, and proximity to area restaurants and attractions, the decision to have a workcation on Alabama’s beaches is easy. Our destination boasts vacation rentals that offer something for everyone, no matter your budget or group size. Head on over to our accommodations page to find what options will serve you best for both work time and downtime.
