Tidewater Condominium sits directly on the Gulf of Mexico in Orange Beach, Alabama.
Picture yourself savoring your morning coffee as you take in the panoramic beauty of the sunrise over the clear blue water and sugar white sand from your balcony off the master bedroom before you start your days activity. Think about frolicking in surf, building castles in the sand, looking for sand dollars and unique shells, or perhaps just relaxing while you sunbath and read your favorite book as the waves wash against the shore.

Orange Beach and neighboring Gulf Shores provide a wide array of specialty shops and boutiques including the Wharf on the back bay that offers many upscale shops, a variety of restaurants, a multiplex movie theater and a large Ferris wheel.

If you have children with you, may we suggest trying LuLu's restaurant. It is owned by Lucy Buffett (Jimmy Buffetts sister). She really knows how to treat people and keep their kids happy with all the activities available at her outdoor activity area. It is the kind of place you will want to return to again and again. We have to admit that it is great fun even if you do not have children with you!
If it is your first visit PLEASE stop by the Orange Beach Welcome Center and they will help you get familiar with all that is available for your enjoyment. They also have event calendars and maps of the area available, as well as discount coupons!
If you love nature there is a lovely zoo where you can get up close to the animals, acres of State Parks all around the area, dolphin cruises that will take you out for a couple of hours of fun watching the dolphins frolic in the wake of the boat. Remember to bring your cameras to capture the dolphins and the smiles on everyone's face. We recommend the Cold Mil dolphin cruise. Great fun!
Remember the simpler times walking the beach and listening to the surf in the early morning or evening. Relaxing in a lounge chair all day long when you need to just unwind. The Orange Beach area is also a great place for doing nothing at all but relaxing and enjoying the sea air. A day at the beach sitting in the sun or relaxing under an umbrella is a great way to renew and refresh yourself.

Great location for many adventures. Close to the navel museum in Pensacola Florida, home of the Flying Blue Angels. Practice shows on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Practice is usually at 8:30 AM admission is free. There are bleachers at the edge of the field or you can bring a bag chair. A chance of a lifetime to get up close and see a great show. On Wednesday pilots are in museum and you can talk to them and get autographs. It is a thrill for young and old alike.
