Where to Stay for your Family Vacation

In Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, you’ll find just the right lodging to call home. Whether you want the amenities of a full or limited-service hotel, the flexibility of a condominium or the individuality of a beach house, we’ve got it. Beachfront or not, large or small, you pick. Campgrounds and RV parks are popular here, too. 

Hit the Beach

With the Gulf of Mexico just outside your front door, Gulf Shores & Orange Beach make it easy to make daily beach outings on your family vacation. If you’re not staying near the beach, you’ll find ample public beach access points throughout the peninsula. Beach rental companies stand ready to rent everything from chairs and umbrellas to volleyball nets and personal watercraft. For some, the simple things like floating on waves or dipping a crab net in the surf are the perfect way to spend the day. No matter what activities you choose on the beach, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach will show you why we’re such a popular family vacation destination. 

Amuse Yourself

From mini-golf courses to the largest Ferris Wheel on the Gulf Coast, we’ve got family fun on a grand scale. Maybe your daredevil kids want to brave  hairpin turns on the go-kart track. Or maybe testing their skill at dozens of arcade games is the thrill of choice. 

By land or by sea

We’ve got what you want. 

There are many ways for families to enjoy the water on Alabama’s Gulf Coast. Whether your kids want the action of skimboarding and paddle boarding, or if lounging on a tube is the answer, the Gulf Coast beachfront is the perfect place for you. Beyond the beach, you’ll find water activity options ranging from personal watercraft and pontoon boat rentals to amazing dolphin tours and sunset cruises. 

And of course, don’t forget the fishing! We’re known for big catches here and Orange Beach’s fleet of experienced charter captains love to see families reeling them in. 

Mystery & History Awaits

History buffs can take advantage of our area for days.  Visit Fort Morgan for a day of exploration and join the escape room fun while trying to break out of jail before you’re shot as a Yankee Spy! During the summer you can experience tours by candlelight and if you’re lucky you will hear the cannon shots pointed across the bay.
