2. Go to the Beaches
One of the biggest reasons people come to our town for the holidays is for the amazing beaches. Both Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have miles of beautiful accessible beaches for the public. For those who usually spend the holidays in cold weather, our beaches serve as a warm getaway to experience the holidays in a new way.

Don’t forget to stop by the holiday tree and light show in downtown OWA. With free admission, you can bring as many of your loved ones as you want to experience the Christmas wonder. The holiday tree and light show began at the end of November and is available every night until the new year. The light show involves synchronized movement to popular Christmas songs like “Where Are You Christmas” from The Grinch and “Into the Unknown” from Frozen 2.
