for weekend brunch. Featured on the Food Network’s Beach Eats USA, Chef Jon Gibson’s brunch menu has something for every palate, including the Loaded Bloody Mary complete with a beef slider, Gulf shrimp, white cheddar, bacon and more!
Take home a handmade souvenir - and when we say handmade, we mean made by your hands. Make a reservation at The Clay Studio at the Coastal Arts Center and try your hand at throwing clay or painting your own piece of pottery. What better way to remember your couples getaway than with a souvenir you made together?
If you’re in the mood for a quaint, out-of-the-way lunch, stop by Beach House Kitchen and Cocktails

Spend the afternoon window shopping at The Wharf
with a specialty coffee from The Southern Grind Coffee House
, an ice cream cone from The Sugar Shack
or a daiquiri from Island Time Daiquiris
. Whatever floats your boat! Speaking of, take a walk by the marina and daydream about your next (or first) boat with your significant other. Hop aboard the Ferris wheel for a bird’s-eye view of Orange Beach or play a game of miniature golf. It’s all located near The Wharf’s Main Street.
Soak up your last moments on Alabama’s beaches with a sunset dinner on the sand. Pack a cooler and bring a blanket to watch the sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico. Make a stop at Rouses Market
for a large selection of cheeses, pick up flavorful dips at Blalock Seafood & Specialty Market
and don’t forget dessert from Hope’s Cheesecake
A picnic on the beach isn’t the only way to enjoy a sunset dinner. Come aboard the Perdido Queen
for a dinner cruise in Orange Beach. Feast on a gourmet buffet dinner, then dance the night away with live music. It’s an experience like no other in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach!
