Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

State Clubs for our Winter Snowbirds

During the cooler months we welcome the winter snowbirds, Gulf Coast visitors from northern climes who take advantage of sunny skies and temperatures that are downright balmy. They escape the chill of winter and trade snow drifts for sand dunes.

With winter month temperatures averaging 60 degrees in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, there’s no excuse to huddle inside. In addition to the beautiful outdoors, the area offers ample opportunities to get out and socialize. State-specific clubs for winter snowbirds allow you to flock together with those from home. Bridge clubs and weekly potlucks bring together a diverse group with one thing in common, a shared love of the sun and sand. You can also play golf on some of the best golf courses in Alabama.

For winter snowbirds, Gulf Coast weather and activities offer the cure for cold. Learn more about snowbird vacation packages and make a plan to visit us! Experience a new definition of winter escape when you visit Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
