Alabama’s Gulf Shore has something to offer everyone in your family. Whether you are looking for the perfect destination for your next family road trip or a more permanent residence, your search ends here. It’s hard to find Alabama’s perfect mixture of southern charm and small town life anywhere else.
Here’s a look at a few reasons why you should consider taking the family to Gulf Shores on your next trip:
Small Town Atmosphere
It can be rare these days to find an area with a truly laid-back vibe. It seems like people are constantly on the go, so taking a few days to enjoy small town life is always refreshing. Strangers still smile and say hello on the Gulf Shore, and there is something local to do for all tastes and interests. This makes it a great addition to any family vacation and a great reason to stick around.
If you love fresh seafood, there is no better place than the coast. Seafood flows in abundance at the local restaurants, making it a must-try for family dinner night. If you’d rather cook it yourself there are fish markets available too. Treat yourself to a healthy dinner everyone will love.
If you are looking for a way to get your kids disconnected from their electronics, you will find it somewhere in the Gulf Coast. All kinds of outdoor activities are available to make your kids forget they even own tablets. From kayaking to snorkeling, to swimming with the dolphins, they are sure to find a new passion on the coast.
