    Condo holiday in Gulf Shores, Alabama

    With Florida dominating the south eastern coastline of the United States, it would be easy to overlook the potential of a beach holiday in Alabama. After all, when we think of Alabama we tend to think more of its inland waterways and alligators rather than crystal clear seas. However, Alabama does have its own stretch of coastline and Gulf Shores is one of its premier beach resorts. So why not hire a beach condo and enjoy a seaside holiday Alabama-style? You may find that one visit is not enough and that you want it to become your sweet holiday home Alabama!

    Sandcastles, sunbathing and swimming:

    Gulf Shores is situated on the Gulf of Mexico which means you can look forward to warm waters that are a pleasure to swim in. The beaches are soft and welcoming and this combination means it is perfect for a family beach holiday. As well as sunbathing, swimming, and making sandcastles, you may also wish to hire a boogie board from one of the surf shops for some fun amongst the breakers, or perhaps you might decide to try some kite flying.

    Water sports for adrenalin junkies:

    Gulf Shores offers lots for those who like to live life on the edge. The list of activities that can be indulged includes surfing, parasailing, jet skiing, kayaking, and banana boat rides. Perdido Key Parasail offers these activities, and more, and their parasailing option provides a unique means of surveying the Gulf of Mexico coastline from up to 800 feet!

    Fishing:

    Another popular Gulf Shores attraction is sea angling. Opportunities exist to land a big haul either from shore or boat and there are plenty of charter trips for those wanting to try out some deep sea fishing. Along the way, you may also spy some of the magnificent Gulf of Mexico wildlife including dolphins and whales. Amongst the exotic species that can be caught are red snapper, tuna, triggerfish, and swordfish.

    Alabama beyond the beaches:

    Alabama is a fascinating state, full of history and charisma, and it’s well worth prying yourself away from its pristine beaches to check out some of its other attractions. One place that will appeal especially to families with small kids is a visit to Alligator Alley. Based in Summerdale, Alligator Alley is home to lots of rescued alligators and allows you to get close to these wonderful natives of Alabama and observe them being fed!

    Another recommended attraction is the Baldwin County Heritage Museum. Alabama has a rich history from the early Native American years to periods of French, Spanish, and British rule and then through to the story of the American Civil War. The Baldwin County Heritage Museum provides a window into the past lives of Alabama’s residents and makes for fascinating viewing.
