Fun Things to Do Near Your Beach House in Orange Beach
Of course, first up is the beach. Spend the day beachcombing, working on your tan, playing in a pickup volleyball game, or showing off your parasailing skills. Or learn a new skill like yoga paddleboarding! When it gets too hot, just jump in the Gulf!
Head out on the water for some casual fishing or to do some serious sportfishing; that swordfish is going to look great on your wall! Booking your expedition with one of the many charter boats in the area will give you a better chance at landing a big one. Plus, it allows you to enjoy the beautiful scenery while someone else pilots the boat. Choose the type of fishing you’re interested in (trolling, heavy tackle, or fly fishing), and choose your location (deep sea, inshore, or back bay locations). Mix things up a bit and book your adventure on a kayak, jet ski or sailboat. Landing your catch off a paddleboard with a fly rod is an experience you don’t want to miss!
Stay cool during your vacation in summer house Orange Beach rentals by doing some scuba diving. There are sites in the area for both the novice diver and the more experienced.Novices should try the Whiskey Wreck first. This sunken rum runner is one of the few sites that is accessible from shore. For the more experienced diver, take the plunge to one of the newest spots on the coast, the Lulu. This sunken freighter lurks in the murky water down to a depth of 115 feet.
Book a dolphin-watching cruise – the kids will love it – or take a romantic sunset cruise with your honey. . Turn some dolphin fun into a learning experience with an eco-cruise. Rent a paddleboard or kayak (or bring your own) and head into the backwater for some up-close encounters with marine life. Fishing or just taking a quiet trip in a kayak will give you a new perspective on the gulf or backbay. And those dolphins and alligators will be that much closer!
Tired of the beach and nature? Take a break from the water and outdoor activities and head to The Wharf for shopping, dining, nightlife, concerts and more. Take the entire family, as there is something for everyone here: a light show, mini-golf, arcade games, an escape room, movie theaters, and a Ferris wheel. If that wasn’t enough, there’s a zip line too!
And of course, all of our rentals are located close to beachfront bars and restaurants. Enjoy all the fresh seafood you can handle while you enjoy a cold beverage and sit out on the deck and people watch or stay inside in the AC to enjoy your meal. And no trip to Orange Beach would be complete without a trip to the world-famous Flora-Bama! This nearby honky tonk has everything you’ll need for a wild evening out. Multiple stages for live music (and you never know what famous musician will be dropping by to do an impromptu set), several restaurants, plenty of adult beverages and an oyster bar. Try their famous Bushwacker!
Tired of the crowds? Stay in and cook the fresh catch of the day in your rental’s fully equipped kitchen. Make sure your rental has an outdoor grill, or access to one, so you can show off your fishing expertise and your grilling skills at the same time.
