Best Cheap, Local Restaurants in Gulf Shores/Orange Beach

It’s smart to look around and compare prices when you’re looking for restaurants. After all, even though we offer very affordable rentals, it’s good to make a practice of being thrifty elsewhere—especially when you don’t need to sacrifice quality!

The best spots to eat on vacation are local mom n’ pop shops—what’s the point of going to explore a new place if you’re just going to eat at the same place you always do? Instead, you should be looking for places where you can experience the local cuisine—and in a southern gulf town, it’s cooking you can’t get anywhere else! Here are a few ideas to get your mouth watering:

Sea-n-Suds

This is a great spot to visit while you’re on the beach. It’s not hard to understand why Sea-N-Suds has been around so long. You can get a delicious sandwich and a side here for $9 and enjoy it right by the Gulf! Their seafood is reasonably priced too, and fresh from the source. It’s the perfect place to grab “beach food!” You’ll find it by E. 3rd Street and E. Beach Boulevard in Gulf Shores.

Flip Flop Deli Shop

Despite the name, this restaurant is anything but a flop! The prices are quite the bargain given this restaurant’s combination of location, portion size, and service. They have a whole smorgasbord of different options— and each one is spectacularly delicious! Their offerings all make a great beach-outing bite: they offer pizza, snow cones, sandwiches, ice cream, and coffee! You’ll always get your money’s worth here. It’s on Beach Boulevard, west of 4th Street.

The Cove Bar and Grill

If you crave the bar scene but are worried about food prices, check out this spot! This casual spot is great for a good meal, with classic bar food like mozzarella sticks as well as southern staples like fried green tomatoes. For main courses, they feature sandwiches, salads, and wraps, with almost all offerings under $10—enjoy a meal while playing some billiards! It’s on (quite fittingly) Cove Avenue between Gulf Shores Parkway and W 2nd Street.

China King

Ranging from $6 lunch specials to the $12 chef specials and assortments of appetizers to add in for just $4 or less each, China King gives quite a lot of value! There’s an immense menu, too, so even people not fond of Chinese food are likely to find something that sounds delicious. Chinese restaurants may be hard to find in Baldwin County, but China King delivers! China King is in a strip mall on the north side of Alabama’s Coastal Connection in Orange Beach, but if you’re nearby you can even order online—perfect if you can’t stand leaving your vacation rental!

Top 5 Sunscreen Lotions for Your Beach Vacation in Gulf Shores

Gulf Shores is one of the greatest places in Alabama to enjoy the sand and the surf, but there’s nothing like a sunburn to ruin a vacation! If you’re planning on enjoying the best of Gulf Shores, make sure you’re protecting yourself from the sun while you do it.

Make sure that you apply sunscreen several times for longer days out, especially if swimming. Even if the product boasts a high SPF and a water-resistant label, total protection is too important to compromise!

Coppertone WaterBABIES

Coppertone has been a staple name in sunscreen for a long time, and this product is one reason why! While granting a strong SPF, WaterBABIES is also designed to be better for toddlers and infants than other options. It is not only hypoallergenic, but also has a gentler formula that’s less likely to upset your youngster; pediatricians recommend this sunscreen. (Please watch your kids around water!)

Equate Sport Sunscreen Lotion

Equate is Walmart’s store-brand sunscreen lotion—while some people are wary of store-brand products, Equate boasts the same quality as many popular brands, and its low price makes it a popular buy. Their Sport lotion is an excellent choice for a day of activity—its water-resistant, non-runny formula makes it just as good for surfing as for volleyball!

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in

La Roche-Posay is a French company that specializes in studying ways to keep skin healthy. Their line of sunscreen is called “Anthelios”—an abridged Greek meaning “against the sun.” Beauticians have commended the line of Anthelios products for protecting users from the sun as well as reducing the appearance of sun damage—the fast-absorbing lotions can even be used under make-up. Anthelios by La Roche-Posay is the perfect option for those who want to stay beautiful in the sun.

Ocean Potion

Ocean Potion started in 1989 in Virginia, and has spread throughout the south ever since thanks to its innovative approach to creating sunscreen lotions. The name comes from their use of sea plants in their products. Their lotions aim to not only protect against sun damage, but also supply vitamin D3 and vitamin E.

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate comes in several degrees of SPF, its most popular being SPF 30. As a company, Aveeno specializes in skin lotions of various sorts, so many people with dry or sensitive skin may gravitate toward their sunscreens as well. Aveeno Protect + Hydrate gives water-resistant sun protection designed to not block pores and to keep skin feeling soft.

Our Guide to Waterville USA

Since opening, Waterville USA in the heart of Gulf Shores has become one of the premier entertainment destinations for families vacationing along the Alabama Gulf Coast. From the start of the season in late May to the end of the season in mid-August, Waterville is a favorite for those looking to break from the pristine beaches for a change. So, what’s there to do at Waterville? Well, there’s the water—bucket loads of it! This may be the best place to spend a day when you cannot get into the Gulf water.

Attractions & Things to Do at Waterville USA

One of the coolest attractions is the Flowrider, especially if you like hanging ten. The Flowrider creates a continuous wave over a base of soft foam. You will be able to practice all your tricks on a perfect wave with no fear of falling or injury.

If you’re a thrill seeker, then you’ll want to get in line for Great White, a world-class one, two, and three passenger tubing adventure through the jaws of the Great White Shark, a tunnel, a waterfall, and then a quick drop to the lagoon below. This ride is the Gulf Coast’s most awesome tube ride.

And if that isn’t fun enough, then really get your heart going on the Screamin’ Demon. Yeah, it’s that scary—and thrilling! What is it? It’s a water slide not for the faint of heart! Drop almost 60 feet in a flash on Waterville’s white-knuckle scream machine. This high-speed body slide is a must for thrill seekers.

But not all the attractions at Waterville might make you skip lunch; there’s plenty of relaxing water-centric attractions like Shrimp Boat Village—a waterworks attraction and the ultimate water playground. This water wonderland has something around every corner. Three stories of sprays, geysers, net crawls, slides, water cannons, and dumping buckets abound on this amazing attraction. Turn the handles and soak a friend or family member on Waterville’s interactive water playground. Shrimp Boat Village is fun for the whole family and must be experienced firsthand, but beware of the giant shrimp bucket dump!

There’s also Rainbow Falls, Crystal Waters River, North Shore Wave Pool, Gold Rush, and much more, with plenty of things to do for the really little ones. And when it comes time for some grub, Waterville’s got a great snack and lunch bar. Want to just get some rays? Then relax on a lounge chair and let your troubles float away!

Last but not least, Waterville USA is home to the Cannonball Run, a wooden rollercoaster that hits 50 MPH. Feel the thrill of zero-gravity and pure speed with family and friends on the Gulf Coast’s fastest wooden coaster, day or night. This is definitely one of the Gulf Coast’s coolest attractions and a must ride for sure.

The Hangout – Gulf Shores’ Top Hangout Spot!

These days, The Hangout has become the heart and soul of downtown Gulf Shores. What many folks don’t know is The Hangout was a meeting place for surfers during the beach-blanket-bingo-era of the’50s and early ’60s, when it was a little joint that served as a gathering point for young folks enjoying the local beaches.

The Hangout occupied a prime piece of beach at the foot of Ala. 59 more or less continuously until Hurricane Ivan came along in 2004. But in 2008, The Hangout returned bigger and better than ever.

Things to Do at The Hangout

Just feet away from the Gulf of Mexico and Gulf Shores Public Beach, The Hangout is ground zero for family fun. There’s so many things to do at this iconic business.

The menu holds dozens of the Gulf Coast culinary favorites found all over Pleasure Island, but there are a few signature dishes unique to The Hangout like the Cajun Campfire Steak, Hangout Jambalaya, Hang 10 Cheeseburger, Big Beach Burger, Shaka Wrap, and more. But there’s more than the fun food. Have your picture taken with the giant shakra hand, pick up official Hangout merchandise at the One-Stop Fun Shop, or spend some time participating in the courtyard games. Kids can also climb in the sand pit, get foamy in the daily foam party, or pay a visit to the wish wall.

But The Hangout isn’t just for the little ones. For those over 21, The Hangout is just as much fun. Enjoy a high-octane frozen brain-freezer at the daiquiri bar, custom cocktail at the indoor bar, or sip on a boutique draft beer or chill out at the Mermaid Bar.

The Hangout dining room itself is huge with a buzz of excitement that lasts all summer long. Just walking around The Hangout is like traveling back in time. One of the coolest things is the wall collections. Among other things, the walls hold old-school lunch-boxes. Now, if you want to travel back in time to the old Hangout, then check out the old black and white and color photographs that tell the story of Gulf Shores in a by-gone era.

And of course, The Hangout Music Fest, held the weekend before Memorial Day, has become one of the country’s largest, multi-day out door festivals, and this year is expected to be even bigger, being held from May 18 to 21.

Stop By The Hangout

The Hangout may not be what is was in its heyday, but it’s even bigger and better now and promises a memorable experience for the whole family.

Enjoy Fantastic Live Music in a Beautiful Tropical Locale

Nothing pairs better with a relaxing getaway in a gorgeous Gulf Coast setting like Gulf Shores than awesome music played by talented local artists. One of the best parts of visiting Gulf Shores is the city’s abundance of laid-back bars and music hotspots. See some of the greatest up-and-coming musicians around for yourself firsthand at the neat places we’ve listed out below!

The Wharf Amphitheater

Perhaps the most obvious choice to start off this list would be the Wharf Amphitheater. As the number one destination for live concerts performed by the biggest names in music, the Wharf Amphitheater is a popular choice for concert-goers who love that arena-style musical experience, housing just under ten thousand seats.

Flora-Bama

Even though Flora-Bama straddles the state line between Florida and Alabama and is technically situated across the state line, this carefree and fun bar is the area’s classic roadhouse and home to a number of small stages that are frequented by local musicians on nearly a nightly basis.

Live Bait

A two-part restaurant and club, Live Bait offers a good selection of live music that samples from older music to newer top-40 radio hits. The schedule for live music is seasonal, so you’ll want to call ahead and make sure that they’ve got someone lined up to play before heading over if you’re visiting during the off-season.

Lulu’s

No list of live music in Gulf Shores would be complete without mentioning Lulu’s! A popular spot for both visiting and local musicians, Lulu’s is dedicated to its favorite performers, such as Alabama native and past winner of the reality singing competition show American Idol Taylor Hicks. Lulu’s is also known for having delicious food, so be sure to grab a bite while you’re here!

The Hangout

Rounding off our list is The Hangout. A cool bar with inside and outdoor seating and a perfect location right on the beach, The Hangout literally built its reputation on its live music offerings. In fact, they’re so well-known for it, they even host an annual music festival each May! Kick back and unwind with some great tunes, good beer, and a sunset view of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Top 5 Extraordinary Spots to Go Picnicking in Gulf Shores

When you visit Gulf Shores, you won’t want to skip out on enjoying our phenomenal weather—especially during the temperate months of the spring season. Take full advantage of the warm and cheerful Gulf Coast sunshine by planning a picnic in one of the city’s many distinctively beautiful spots that are perfectly suited for such activities. Read on below to learn more about some of Gulf Shores’ best places to picnic.

Fort Morgan Historic Site

Pair your picnic with a side of history at the Fort Morgan, where visitors can explore the ruins of a key battle site of the Civil War (sometimes with the added effect of costumed reenactments), as well as the rugged bluffs overlooking the scenic splendor of the Gulf of Mexico. You will likely get a glimpse of some of the huge cargo freighters that deliver goods from around the world to the Port of Mobile each day!

Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail

Consisting of over fifteen miles of trails interspersed amid six different ecosystems, each trail in this extensive network offers distinctive sights for your viewing pleasure, from towering sand dunes to aromatic magnolias and a butterfly garden. You can hike off your meal as you go!

Lake Shelby Recreation Area

Shaded by immense oak trees, Lake Shelby offers serene picnicking conditions for those who wish to take their meal next to the idyllic backdrop of a 900-acre freshwater lake. Beyond sitting on the grass or by the shoreline, pavilions are also provided for picnics. Activities like kayaking and paddle boarding make for fun post-meal pursuits. Remember to bring your pooch because the waterfront dog park at Lake Shelby is just a few steps away!

Orange Beach Waterfront Park

Nestled against Wolf Bay, Orange Beach Waterfront Park has a number of amenities that are ideal for a picnic excursion, including shelter areas with grills, walking paths, a fishing pier, and a park for children.

Alabama Point East

Situated slightly east of Perdido Pass Bridge within the boundaries of Gulf State Park, this breathtaking locale includes pristine beaches, impressive sand dunes, tranquil boardwalks, and areas designated for picnicking, though just about any spot along Alabama Point East will provide stunning visuals to go along with your meal.

Where to Go for the Best Golf in Gulf Shores

Nestled between windswept coastal dunes, snow-white beaches, and the glittering waves of the Gulf of Mexico, Gulf Shores is an incredible vacation destination for people who want to escape into the beauty of a tropical paradise. However, even beyond its stunning environment, Gulf Shores has an abundance of things to do for recreation and leisure—including playing a round of golf on each of its many renowned courses.

Play your way through Gulf Shores and experience the area in a completely unique fashion that no tour could offer you! Below, we’ve put together a brief list of just a handful of the many great golf courses that have earned Gulf Shores its reputation as a top-tier destination for golfers of all skill levels. Harris Properties even has special pricing available for eight local courses; be sure to contact us at 877-446-4853 for more information before you hit the course!

Kiva Dunes Golf Course

Ranked by Golf Digest as one of the Top 100 Public Courses in the country, the expansive Kiva Dunes stretches across 7,092 yards and features an excellent course coupled with exquisite scenery. Situated along the shore, this course is much windier than others in the area. The opening hole gives you a relatively easy par 4 before launching into the more difficult holes. In particular, hole 9’s shot across the water can be challenging! Anyone looking to play this course will certainly want to take a look at our 19th Hole property, which overlooks the 9th green of this course!

Cotton Creek and Cypress Bend Courses at Craft Farms Golf Club

One of the two courses at Craft Farms that was designed by Arnold Palmer himself, is Cotton Creek, which consists of a massive 7,127 yards. Twelve of the holes on this course are framed by water, while the flat sites are given definition through the mounding along the fairways. Hole 6 is where you’ll really have to step up your game, with the first shot requiring carry over water just to reach the fairway, and then a second shot over water to land on the green. Anyone who walks away with a birdie on this hole can consider themselves a pro!

Rated four-and-a-half stars by Golf Digest, Cypress Bend is the newer sister course to Cotton Creek, both of which are located at Craft Farms Golf Club and were designed by Arnold Palmer. It’s widely known for its playability for golfers of all skill levels. The toughest challenge at Cotton Creek will be found at hole 4, where a well-placed initial drive sets you up for a tough approach over the water to the green. This 4.5 star course is sure to delight all players!

Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club

Located near Bon Secour Wildlife Preserve, this Earl Stone-designed golf course showcases twenty-seven holes and a stunning natural backdrop. The three different 9-hole courses—Cypress, Lakes, and Marsh— combine to make one of the most unforgettable golf experiences in the country! Each of the 9-hole courses offers completely different challenges, so you’ll need to break out all your skills (and maybe some luck!) to come away with a low score.

Gulf Shores Golf Club

Established in 1960’s, The Golf Shores Golf Club was the first course established in Gulf Shores. It underwent renovations in 2005 that added bunkers, upgraded fairways, and water features, as well as raised the total yards to 6,812. This beautiful course is also home to an abundance of wildlife. It creates an experience that no golf enthusiast will want to miss.

If you’re an Alabama resident and are planning your wedding in Gulf Shores, you’ll need to get your license in your home county or at the Baldwin County Courthouse in Bay Minette.

If you are having a smaller ceremony, 10 – 20 people, renting a beach front home and having the wedding right there may be the best option. The beaches of West Beach in Gulf Shores and the beaches out in Fort Morgan are perfect for this because they are more secluded and uncrowded.
