Kickoff summer the right way and spend your Memorial Day Weekend in Gulf Shores! There are many things to do and special events to enjoy during the first official weekend of the summer season. Attend the local events, relax on the beach, check out the free activities, and spend time with family and friends at your Gulf Shores vacation rental.

See the Memorial Day Fireworks at OWA 

Quickly becoming one of the most popular Gulf Shores attractions, OWA is truly one of the most fun and entertaining destinations. There is something for everyone in your group to enjoy including rides, shopping, and entertainment located in both the amusement park and downtown area. Take part in the Memorial Day weekend festivities that include fireworks on May 23rd and live performances throughout the weekend. We highly recommend spending an afternoon at OWA and staying for the incredible fireworks! 

Catch a Concert at LuLuPalooza

Long known as one of the top Gulf Shores destinations for food and family fun, Lulu’s has a special musical celebration for Memorial Day weekend. LuLuPalooza means free concerts all day long on Saturday, May 23rd! In addition to the nonstop live music, you can win special prizes at the arcade, enjoy the delicious food, and try the kid-friendly ropes course! The concerts begin at noon and last into the night, so you’ll be able to catch a show whether you decide to stay for an hour or the entire day! 

Eat Delicious Seafood 

Luckily, there is no shortage of Gulf Shores seafood restaurants. Many of our guests look forward to their first fresh seafood meal of the year during Memorial Day weekend. We recommend checking out our recommendations for the top Gulf Shores restaurants and even exploring a bit to find a local establishment that appeals to you. If you ever can’t decide on a restaurant or are looking for some local knowledge, contact our team. We would be thrilled to help you find the perfect place to eat! 

Spend Time on the Beach 

No Memorial Day weekend is complete without spending a day on the beach! Some of your best Gulf Shores memories can be created by simply soaking up the sun and relaxing on the cool white sand. Now that summer has officially arrived, it is the perfect time to enjoy the warm weather. If you have a busy day planned, make time for an evening walk on the beach. Not only will you be able to see an incredible sunset over the Gulf, but nothing creates family memories like a picturesque walk on the beach.
