4:24 pm

Beach vacations are at the top of most people’s travel lists, as there are few better ways to ditch the stress of everyday life than by burying your toes in the sand or feeling a salty breeze whip through your hair.

You could scroll nearly indefinitely on Instagram or Pinterest through images of popular sunny vacation destinations, of far-off places in foreign countries, with bustling beaches and crashing waves. But did you know that you don’t have to travel quite so far to find aqua-marine water and warm temperatures? And that the beaches don’t necessarily have to be packed with people?

That’s right. The Gulf Shores in Alabama, the hidden gem of travel destinations, is the daydreamy vacation you’ve been waiting for.

Sandy Beach Gulf Shores

With over 30 miles of sandy, pristine coastline, and more than 10 public beaches, you’ll have more than enough oceanfront to keep you and your family entertained, without the crowded feel of other popular beach destinations.

Then there’s the water itself. Clear, blue, and wonderfully warm, the Gulf Shores waterfront is the perfect place for all of your favorite recreational activities, including swimming, SUP boarding, kayaking, parasailing, jet skiing and more.

And splashing along with you is the Gulf Shores marine wildlife. Take a Dolphin cruise, skirting the coastline in search of the social, smart, and playful creatures that call Orange Beach their home. Additionally, keep your eyes peeled for nesting sea turtles, crabs, jellyfish, stingrays, and more. Seeing animals in their natural habitat is really something special.

Finally, Gulf Shores boasts an impressive lineup of restaurants and activities to keep you and your family well fed and having fun.

With renowned seafood, traditional Southern cuisine, and lively atmospheres try one of the many beachside dining locations, catching a sunset while munching on fresh-caught fish and chips.

And of course, there’s The Wharf at Orange Beach, with a Ferris wheel, mini golf, laser tag, shopping, an escape room, live music, and literally something for whatever type of vacationer you are.

We know, Alabama’s Gulf Shores sounds too good to be true. You’ll just have to visit yourself to believe. Book a beach vacation to the Gulf Shores today!
