Fly South this Year
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to visit Alabama’s Gulf Coast, and not just to see the beautiful beaches. There are many events to experience and enjoy this time of year.
Feast on This
The top thing on most people’s minds is where to feed the family. You can cook a meal in your fully-equipped kitchen provided at many beach rentals, or choose to dine out at one of the many area restaurants who will be cooking up memorable Thanksgiving feasts.
