10 Fun, Socially Distanced Activities for Your Meeting Attendees

Coastal Segway Adventures at Gulf State Park

The Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail offers 28+ miles of paved trail systems within Gulf State Park. Its 6,150 acres are filled with fresh air and open spaces, so it’s like this trail was made for social distancing. 

Lake Shelby, which is slated to reopen in the spring of 2021, is at the heart of Gulf State Park. Arrange for a picnic lunch for your attendees and enjoy a casual day of strolling around this beautiful lake. Pavilions and gathering spaces are available to rent.

The Learning Campus at Gulf State Park brings a fun, educational adventure to your attendees. The campus offers day trips and overnight stays, nature walks, solar cooking lessons and more. Learn about local ecotourism and sustainability during hands-on workshops.

The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo is fun for all ages. Offering group rates, the zoo encourages your attendees to spread out and explore a 25-acre habitat with a wide variety of animals. Pet the baby kangaroos, watch outdoor presentations, and dine in the first green-certified restaurant in the state of Alabama. 

Charter fishing trips are great for smaller groups. Your attendees will set sail with a certified captain for an exciting and safe water experience. 

Arrange a guided 2-hour Segway adventure through Gulf State Park. Enjoy beautiful, natural scenery during this group-friendly activity. 

Dolphins Down Under sunset cruise

Dolphin cruises and tours make for an unforgettable experience. Watch dolphins play, jump out of the water and even swim next to the boat. Be sure to bring your camera! 

Delta Safaris provides a fascinating exploration of the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta. Choose to kayak or ride the boat for an up-close experience with wildlife in this unique ecosystem found only in Alabama. 

Shopping is another great way for your attendees to explore the area. Locations such as The Wharf offer food, drinks and unique boutiques full of gifts they will want to take home. The open-air surroundings create a fun day for everyone after attending indoor meetings. 

Last but not least: THE BEACH! Take advantage of our 32 miles of sugar-white sand and wide-open spaces. There’s plenty of room to plop beach chairs six feet apart from other beachgoers, and there’s nothing as relaxing as white sand under your feet and the lull of the Alabama Gulf Coast waves. 

Our team at Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism can help you reserve spaces for any of these activities. We know the area, and you can trust us to help you plan the meeting of the year.
