Activities for Solo Travelers Near Our Orange Beach Vacation House Rentals
Just because you’re by yourself doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy all the beach activities you’ve loved over the years. You don’t need a group to stroll along the white sandy beach looking for that perfect shell! Grab your favorite beach blanket, lay on the warm sand and watch the people go by, or the dolphins playing in the surf, or just take a nap. To make things easy for you, we have rental properties right on the beach, so you can roll out of bed and be on the beach in minutes.
Fishing is the perfect solo activity. Do some surf fishing right outside your rental—what could be easier? With the sun on your back and the calming waves swirling around your line, you can zone out while waiting for a bite. Rent a kayak or canoe and try your hand at landing a redfish up close and personal. Book a guided eco-tour and see amazing coastal scenery while learning about the area’s history and marine life. Fish in the Gulf, or head over to the Bay and backwater for a slightly different view. Charter a deep-sea adventure – traveling solo means you get all the attention and all the fish!
Get more out of your vacation and schedule it to sync with one of our local festivals. The National Shrimp Festival is in October. Enjoy all the shrimp you can eat, music, arts & crafts and beer! The Hangout Music Festival in May (in nearby Gulf Shores) is right on the beach, features both new talent and your old favorites; it’s all live music and adult fun. Or, plan to attend the Orange Beach Festival of Art, held in March (around St. Pat’s) for live music, great food from local vendors and local art! Our staff can help you with tickets to any event you’d like to attend, as well as selecting a rental close by.
Head over to The Wharf, near many of our Orange Beach vacation house rentals for a little of everything. There are concerts in their amphitheater all year long. Practice your putting at the mini-golf range, or your gaming skills in the arena (with arcade games and laser tag). Or just relax while you do some shopping and see a movie. Stop in at a sports bar, grab a brew and watch the game. At The Wharf, you’ll have your pick of things to do and eat!
Dining and More
After enjoying yourself on the beach, it’s time to cool down. Stroll on over to one of the many beachfront restaurants in Orange Beach for a drink or two. Sit out on the deck and do some serious people watching while you enjoy fresh seafood and your favorite beverage. Or sit inside at the bar (in the A.C.) and make some new friends. There are no strangers at the beach!
If you’re ready for something to eat, the Grouper Sandwich or Shrimp Tacos at The Gulf – Orange Beach are customer favorites. And, Fisher’s at Orange Beach Marina is two restaurants in one location. If you feel like dressing up a bit, head on up to the Upstairs, or just take a seat in the more casual downstairs Dockside. Either way, you’ll enjoy a delicious meal.
Maybe you just want to hang out and lose yourself in the crowd. That’s easy – head to Tacky Jacks or the nearby Flora-Bama. Tacky Jacks is a colorful, crowded, casual place that is open breakfast, lunch and dinner. And everyone – solo or not – needs to visit the world-famous Flora-Bama at least once. With live music, several restaurants (and an oyster bar), this honky tonk sprawls along the beach and always has something going on.
Of course, after a long day of fishing and beachcombing, you may want to stay in your lovely beachfront rental and grill your catch. Nothing is more satisfying than eating the fish you worked so hard to catch. If you’re a catch-and-release angler, stop by one of our local markets and grab a fresh fillet or some fresh local shrimp instead. It’s all good. And because all of our rentals come with fully equipped kitchens, turning your catch into a memorable meal will be a breeze. Eat out on your private deck and enjoy the vibrant sunset over the turquoise Gulf. Now this is a vacation!
Rentals for Solo Travelers
Our Orange Beach rentals usually have two or more bedrooms, but that doesn’t mean you can’t rent one for yourself. You can spread out and enjoy all that room for yourself! Take your pick of bedrooms, or use them all!
Rent a high-rise condo with amazing views, or a cute cottage on the Back Bay. Our rentals in resort communities come with resort amenities too: swimming pools, fitness rooms, and more.
No matter what you want – panoramic high-rise views, direct beach access or a private dock on the bay, swimming pool, or a pet-friendly rental – we have the Orange Beach vacation house rentals that will be just right for spending quality time alone, but not too far from the hustle and bustle of all that beach fun. Give us a call today! We want to help make your solo vacation here as memorable as it can be!
