Alabama’s miles of inviting white sand beaches provide a beautiful contrast to the Gulf of Mexico’s clear turquoise waters. Parasail high above the waters for a bird’s eye view, go deep-sea fishing, or keep a watch for dolphins leaping out of the water–an incredible sight. When you’re ready to wind down, take in the area’s incredible wildlife, historical Civil War sites, and world-class golf.
Enjoy this family-friendly destination’s picnic pavilions, nearby shopping, water sports, or hiking and biking trails that let you explore at your own pace. And when you’ve worked up an appetite, some of the freshest Gulf seafood is yours to enjoy as you catch stunning sunsets at one of many casual outdoor dining and entertainment venues. Dinner and a show here can mean live music and cocktails with friends, all under a canopy of pink and lavender skies signaling the end of a perfect day and the beginning of a memorable evening.
