Let’s Begin Summering This Spring

When the birds start chirping, the sun begins to shine a little brighter, and the breezes coming off our coastline start to warm your skin, you know it's springtime on our beaches. 

With clear skies, sugar-white sand and pristine turquoise waters, it’s no wonder families continue to choose Gulf Shores and Orange Beach as their spring break haven. Our beaches are expansive, allowing your family to have plenty of fun in the sun while also staying safe.

Spring also which gives your family the opportunity to explore attractions and entertainment off the beach with smaller crowds. Enjoy the beautiful spring weather by biking on the Backcountry Trail, kayaking the Back Bay Blueway, hopping on a jet ski, booking a dolphin cruise or visiting our friends at the new Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo

"Our family likes to be active on vacation. Spring is the best time to explore the more than 25 miles of the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail before it gets too hot. Renting bikes at Beach Bike Rentals is super easy, because the shop is located right on the trail. While back on the trails, we felt miles away from the hustle and bustle while we explored. Afterwards, we pedaled off the beaten path for a superb lunch at Anchor Bar and Grill, and the best darn fish tacos I've ever had."

"Following a cold couple of months in the South, there's no better way to remind ourselves of the promise of summer than a springtime trip to Gulf Shores or Orange Beach. Enjoy the amenities of summer, but most everything is less expensive. You may have to pack some long-sleeved tees for evenings, but the newly found adventure will be worth it."

"Gulf Shores was one of our best family trips last year. Each day was like peeling a (sweet!) onion - layers of fun, GREAT food, people and fascinating places to explore. Our list is already made for 2019."
