All About Gulf Shores in May
The following events/activities might be postponed or altered due to COVID-19. Be sure to check event websites.
You can’t beat the weather in Gulf Shores during this time of year. During May, temperatures hover between 75 and 85 degrees. Plus, the average seawater temperature in May is 76.8 degrees. This is still considered chilly to some people, but swimming isn’t out of the question. If you work up a good sweat playing an exciting game of beach volleyball, you’ll be dying for a refreshing dip in the cool waters.
Memorial Day Celebrations
Nothing says “summer is here” like a Memorial Day celebration! If you visit Gulf Shores for Memorial Day this year, there’s plenty of ways to enjoy the weekend. One of our favorite activities is packing a picnic and heading to the beach. You can also take a picnic with you to the Fort Morgan Historic Site or Lake Shelby Recreation Area. Saturday evening, head to Downtown OWA and watch their dazzling fireworks display.
Attractions and Activities
When it comes to Gulf Shores in May, there’s always something exciting to do. If you want to get out on the water, why not treat yourself to a cruise with Condor Sailing Adventures?
