"As a homeschooling family, we tend to seek educational opportunities outside textbooks. We look for interesting and fun activities that educate our children and create family memories at the same time. The Gulf Shores and Orange Beach area is our favorite destination for this. It truly has something to interest each member of the family, and there is always something new to explore and experience on each visit. From nature to art to history to family memories on the beach, Gulf Shores has it all!"

"For our homeschooling family, learning looks a lot like playing, which is why we love taking our classroom to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. From beach explorations, to dolphin sightings to historic Fort Morgan or the lemur experience at the zoo, every activity is a learning opportunity disguised in a sunny package of fun!"

Those Crazy Nelsons
"There's so much to do in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach to stimulate your homeschooler's mind! My family loved the unique animal encounter experiences at the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo. Petting a baby tiger and having a lemur jump on my daughter's head are memories she will not forget - and that help solidify the facts she's learned about these animals. There's also Fort Morgan where we learned a lot about the Civil War history of Alabama's Gulf Coast. And even a day at the beach is educational - learning WHY Alabama has such sugar-white sandy beaches or experiencing a fishing charter are excellent ways to slip in some school!"
