When looking for things to do in Gulf Shores, there are plenty of options! We always encourage our guests at Harris Vacation Rentals to let us know the experiences they are looking for so we can recommend activities, restaurants, and any services that are needed.

Here are a few places and activities that our Harris Vacation Rentals team enjoyed this summer at Gulf Shores. 

Dining at The Perch at Gulf State Park 

If you’re looking for an exceptional dining experience, we suggest The Perch at Gulf State Park. Patrons can enjoy locally-sourced food, cocktails, sunsets, and stunning views of the surrounding beaches. Here’s what someone on our team said about their experience:

“The views are amazing! I enjoy this restaurant because it has a beautiful view, great food, and a fantastic wine selection.”

A Peaceful Vibe at Acme Oyster House 

Vacations can be really exciting. But we think it’s good to slow down and take advantage of a slower pace. The Acme Oyster House opened in 2014 and is a popular spot for fresh seafood and cajun classics. They also have great outdoor seating. Here’s what one team member had to say::

“I like the atmosphere and sitting on the back deck. Very peaceful.”

Enjoying the Nature at Gulf State Park 

With two miles of beaches and white sand, Gulf State Park is an excellent staple for those drawn to the outdoors. From hiking and biking to kayaking and canoeing, visitors can participate in a wide variety of activities, which makes it a great attraction for families. This park is a highlight for our team:

“I enjoy walking the Gulf State Park trails. Bike riding in the Gulf State Park. You can rent a bike for free if you do not have your own. Enjoying music at Meyer Park is always fun! Bring your chair and the pup.”

Having a Blast at the Beach 

While there is a lot to do in Gulf Shores, nothing beats the fun and entertainment a day at the beach has to offer. Take a look at what our team had to say about spending time on the beach:

“I enjoy spending time on the beach with friends and family. It is a good way to unwind from a busy week and enjoy the serenity and peace away from all the stress that life throws at us.”

“I enjoy going to one of the many beautiful beaches and collecting seashells. The beach always clears/calms the soul!”

“I enjoy relaxing at the beach, shopping, and playing mini-golf with friends and family. I would recommend taking one of the boat tours or fishing charters as it is always a fun experience.”
