Top Things to Do in Gulf Shores
Posted on February 9, 2016
If you have recently moved to the Gulf Coast or are thinking about buying real estate in Gulf Shores, you are undoubtedly itching to get out and see what the area has to offer. Allow us to help with our top things to do in Gulf Shores!
We know the first thing you will want to do in your new hometown is hit the beach, but it may still be a little chilly for that. If so, try hitting up a Gulf front restaurant instead. That way, you can enjoy the awesome beach views, as well as try out some local seafood. We recommend Bahama Bob’s or the Pink Pony Pub. Another great place to try is LuLu’s on Homeport Marina. Located off the beach, this fun restaurant is known for their great food, fun family activities and onsite attractions such as a ropes course and arcade.
Speaking of activities, if you love the outdoors, Gulf Shores offers your ideal attractions in the form of the local state park. Explore it from high above via a seven mile ziplining tour, or hike the available trails, including the popular birding trails. Once it warms up, grab your paddle board or kayak to explore the water ways. If fishing has caught your eye, head out to the state park’s fishing pier.
You may be thinking you want to steer clear of the tourist destinations now that you’re a local, but they are so much fun and spring is a perfect time to try them out before the summer crowds arrive. Our best bets include Waterville USA, the local water park, as well as the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo. Dolphin and boat tours are also a popular and fun activity the entire family will enjoy. And, of course, be sure to enjoy a sunset walk on the beautiful beaches as soon as it warms up!
