Your first day at the beach calls for a hearty breakfast with your crew. Stop in at Another Broken Egg
for a variety of breakfast classics, including pancakes stacked high, omelets and benedicts. If you want breakfast with a kick, order up a serving of Cajun Louisiana Crawfish Skillet. It’s packed with scrambled eggs, crawfish tails, Andouille sausage, onions, peppers, potatoes and cheese.
Morning and Lunch
Hit the greens for your first morning in Gulf Shores. If you’ve got time to spare (and you should since you’re on vacation), go for a full 18 holes of championship golf
. Fall golf specials make it an affordable way to spend the day. Break for lunch at the clubhouse grill and give each other’s golf game a little friendly critique over a cold drink. Tip: Don’t worry about packing everyone’s clubs in the car. Use Ship Sticks to ship your clubs directly to the course you plan to play.
Rest up after your day on the golf course and enjoy some time on your beachfront balcony. When happy hour calls, you’ve got your pick of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach hot spots, including Live Bait
, The Hangout
, Driftwood Bar & Grill
Refuel with unique takes on traditional Southern cuisine at Luna’s Eat & Drink
. Luna’s also boasts one of the largest selections of craft beer on the island. (But don’t indulge too much, because day two begins with a charter fishing boat!) After dinner, pick up plenty of bottled water and snacks to pack in your cooler for your deep sea fishing adventure. You’ll want to grab a few items for breakfast, too.
