If you are beating the winter blues by daydreaming of a relaxing beach vacation to the Alabama Gulf Coast, then we’ve got you covered. When reserving your spring break vacation rental, we recommend planning a few local activities that we think are must-dos for the perfect Orange Beach and Gulf Shores spring break.
Don’t miss out on these great spring break activities below!
1. Relax on the Beach
With 32 miles of sugar-white sand for you to enjoy, we recommend making time to catch the waves and enjoying a little peace and quiet. If your vacation rental is not directly on the beach, check out these great coastal Alabama public beaches.
2. Sail Away
Set sail with Sail Wild Hearts this spring and take in the views of the beaches from the water. The 53-foot catamaran cruises daily and offer excursions just off the shore. You can set sail on a daily dolphin cruise or the three-hour adventure sail that includes an island stop, kayaks, paddleboard, and snorkeling.
3. Catch the Big One
Alabama is known for the diversity of saltwater and freshwater with inshore and offshore fishing. Get hooked on blue marlin, yellowfin tuna, red snapper and much more. An Alabama fishing license is required when fishing in public waters unless you are aboard a licensed charter boat.
4. Take a Hike
Walk, jog, bike or take a guided golf cart ride through the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail in the Gulf State Park. Six trails make up 13.5 miles so you can connect with nature. Schedule a 2-hour guided eco-tour with the City of Orange Beach on a covered electric cart. And check out these other fantastic trails and parks in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
5. Zip the Gulf
Experience the great outdoors and fly high about the waters of the Hummingbird Ziplines. Located at the Gulf State Park, the two-hour circuit zipline offers an unforgettable experience and a thrilling adrenaline rush, making for a great Gulf Shores spring break activity.
6. Go Wild at the Zoo
See lions, tigers, and bears at the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo where you can get up close and personal with over 500 animals. Enjoy spending time with a number of species facing extinction while getting a unique educational experience.
