When hunger comes calling, treat yourself to a down-home breakfast at The Diner
in Gulf Shores. The Diner serves traditional breakfast fare with a motto of “Food that breaks hunger, not the bank.” If you’re in Orange Beach, stop by Brick & Spoon
for breakfast. The over-21 crowd can spice up their breakfast with a build-your-own bloody mary with ingredients including bacon and cheeses.
Bring back some tall fishing tales of the Alabama Gulf Coast. Orange Beach is home to one of the Southeast’s largest charter fishing
fleets. Start with a four-hour fishing trip, either inshore or near shore. However, if your family includes older children you might also consider a longer offshore excursion.
It doesn’t get any fresher than right off the boat! After you’ve reeled in lunch, your deckhand will clean your catch. Make way to a cook-your-catch restaurant
in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, such as Gulf Shores Steamer
or Doc’s Seafood Shack & Oyster Bar
Are the kids in your group ages 12 and older? Go for a little adventure on the Hummingbird Zipline
at The Wharf. Experience nature with a bird’s-eye view as you zip across eight lines on the course. If your idea of fun is keeping your feet planted on solid ground, take your under-12 crowd to the miniature golf course at The Wharf while you wait on the rest of the family to finish their high-flying adventure.
Wind down your family’s spring break trip with dinner in your condo. Break out the board games and enjoy a low-key night in with the sights and sounds of waves crashing on the shoreline just a short distance from your balcony. Dinner in doesn’t mean you have to cook, either. Browse the restaurant offerings of delivery services like Gulf to Go
or order some heat-and-serve dishes from shops such as Sarah’s Homemade
