Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

Read Your Way Around the Beach

A vacation is all about an escape to a new place, and that’s one reason reading and beach getaways go hand-in-hand. A sun-warmed beach chair, crashing waves and a good book are all the makings of the perfect afternoon as you lose yourself in fantasy worlds and made-up realities. Reading at the beach is a great way to relax and get away from it all.
