We are making our after summer plans, and I am excited to say they include the Gulf Shores & Orange Beach area in Alabama. The kids are huge fans of the beach, and take every chance they can to visit the ocean. Since we are here in Texas, we are closer to the Gulf of Mexico than we are to either coastline. The Gulf of Mexico region isn’t usually known for beautiful beaches. The exception to this rule is Gulf Shores & Orange Beach. They have 32 miles of white sand beaches and turquoise water to play in.
But there are more than just beaches! Here’s a few of the things we’re looking forward to:
The Alabama Gulf Coast area is easy to get to. It is easily accessible from the Midwest and Southeast regions if you are roadtripping, and close to both Mobile and Pensacola airports.
