On the Scene
Special Features of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach
It's Better at the Beach
Attendees need to unplug before they can recharge, and our 32 miles of sugar-white sand and turquoise water help them do just that. With flexible meeting spaces reflecting our laid-back coastal lifestyle, your group will find it easy to disconnect from the daily grind in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
Subtropical temperatures, bountiful deep-sea and bay waters and the largest fishing fleet on the Gulf of Mexico make Orange Beach a fisherman’s paradise. A charter fishing excursion is a great way for attendees to relax and build camaraderie while waiting for the “big one” to come along.
Keep your catch and plan a group dinner party at a local Cook Your Catch restaurant.
