Things to do

Battles and tales of derring-do at Gulf Shores Beach

Take a step back in time at the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park and the National Museum of Naval Aviation, and explore Fort Morgan – the guardian of Mobile Bay since 1834 and the site of 4 wars. Kids may want to visit the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, which offers hands-on animal encounters – make sure you book early as these sell out quickly during the summer. The Gulf State Park Pier is the second longest pier on the Gulf of Mexico and is the perfect spot for fishing or for simply enjoying the ocean views – especially at sunrise.


An aquatic adventure awaits

It’s all about the water sports here – with jet skiing, parasailing, and surfing all available at the beach. Families are sure to enjoy snorkeling through the shallow, crystal-clear waters – or head out on a deep-sea fishing adventure and explore some of Alabama’s vast artificial reefs. Once you’ve had your fill of beachside fun, head inland where the many creeks and rivers can be explored on a kayak. There’s also a good network of walking, hiking, and biking trails, and when being on your feet gets too much, take a 2-hour guided Segway tour through the Gulf State Park.


How to get Gulf Shores Beach all to yourself (well, almost)

Gulf Shores enjoys a subtropical climate with year-round mild temperatures. June to August is the most popular time to visit, with daytime temperatures in the low 80s and tempered by the cool Gulf breeze – it’s no surprise then that Gulf Shores Beach vacation rentals are in high demand during this time. It’s still warm in spring and fall, and although it might be too cold to swim, you’ll still find plenty to do away from the beach if you book a Gulf Shores Beach vacation rental during the quieter winter months.

Gulf Shores Beach's natural wonders - including an oh-so-cute mouse
