Seasonal travel can mean different things to different travelers. For snowbirds, it means heading down to the warm winters of the south while escaping the harsh weather of more northern climates. For families, it may mean those few weeks when they can plan a family vacation to the beach. Memories of the bright sun, wonderful weather, and soft, white sandy beaches are what keeps Gulf visitors who stay in our Orange Beach house rentals going throughout the rest of the year.
Why Orange Beach?
Bounded on the north by Wolf Bay and Bay La Launch, and on the south by the Gulf of Mexico, Orange Beach is located just east of Gulf Shores on the Alabama shoreline. Once here, you can enjoy a variety of water-related activities, whether you are a beach fanatic, or love the quieter backwaters and bays. So many travelers come here year after year, establishing decades-long traditions and memories. Isn’t it time you found out why?
What to Do Near Your Orange Beach House Rentals
No matter the time of year, there are always fun activities waiting in Orange Beach. Here are just a few suggestions to get you started.
Originally used as Native American hunting trails, the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail winds through six different ecosystems. Paths are ADA accessible and you can jog, walk, skate, and bike your way along the paths past freshwater lakes, wetlands and marshes.
The winter months are the perfect time to practice your golf game. Kiva Dunes, Alabama’s highest ranked public golf course, is located on the peninsula for a unique coastal challenge. And, the all-volunteer South Baldwin Community Theater has special snowbird promotions during winter months for theater groupies.
Spend a relaxing day on the water any time of year from your Orange Beach house rental, looking for dolphins and other marine life while you enjoy the beautiful scenery. Book a dolphin and nature cruise, dolphin eco-tour or a sunset tour. Or book a fishing charter for some casual fishing or extreme sport fishing. And the beach is always inviting year-round, whether you spend the day beachcombing, parasailing or just people watching.
Tired of outdoor activities? No problem. Head to The Wharf where there’s something for everyone: shopping, dining, nightlife, movies, concerts and a Ferris wheel! There are plenty of activities for the kids too – mini-golf, arcade games, laser tag, escape rooms and a zip line!
