Gulf Shores Family Attractions

Your beach vacation isn’t just about sitting on the beach (although that is certainly part of the fun!).  Enjoy an entertaining day on the Gulf with a variety of activities that the entire family will enjoy and bring home memories that will last forever.

Haul your troops out of bed and start off with a fairly mellow morning adventure to wake everyone up.  The Battleship Memorial Park houses the USS Alabama, where you and your family can soak up some history and check out the various vessels used in our country’s brave battles.  There are many other educational Gulf Shores attractions that your family will enjoy.

After a morning filling your “tanks” with knowledge, why not increase the group excitement with a trip to Alligator Alley!  The entire family is sure to get a thrill watching over a hundred gators in their natural habitat, safely above ground on the boardwalk that is.  In addition to alligators, observe owls, osprey, turtles and more.  Don’t forget to feed the gators before you leave please!

If the excitement of gator-watching has your group a bit tuckered out, plan to head to one of two nearby movie theaters in gulf shores and catch a family flick.

Cap off your fun-filled family day with a trip to “The Track” in Gulf Shores.  Go-karts and mini-golf are bound to inspire a friendly wager or two on who can lap Dad on the track or sink a hole-in-one first.

Capture memories that will last your family a lifetime with a beach photography session on our sugar-white sands.

Check out even more fun family adventures by using the links in the navigation above, as there is plenty more to do.  The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, water park and Gulf Coast Exploreum are just a few more activities that your entire family will enjoy.
