Local Bars

If you want the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach local experience, visit some local bars.

If you're looking for a place to kick back and relax, you'll find lounges and sports bars where you can do that.

Incredible Food

You can't visit the Gulf without enjoying at least a few great meals. Visit one of the many Orange Beach and Gulf Shores restaurants in the area for a delicious meal that you'll remember long after your vacation is over. Look for outdoor seating where you can enjoy your dinner while watching the sun go down, or find a restaurant with great views of the water. Look for culinary festivals during the fall and delicious, fresh Gulf Coast seafood year-round.
