Show your love in Gulf Shores

There's no doubt that Gulf Shores, Alabama, and the surrounding beach towns of Orange Beach, Fort Morgan and Perdido Key are romantic vacation destinations.

For the athletic pair

There are Valentine's Day activites in Gulf Shores to meet every couple's idea of romance.If you and your beloved enjoy getting out and hitting the trails during the region's mild winter months, you might consider the 2013 Sweetheart 5K/10K/1m Run/Walk, held around Valentine's Day each year. You can register for this inexpensive event either online or at The Hangout, where the races start. Better yet, register the night before to carb up with an all-you-can-eat pasta dinner special at this very popular Gulf Shores establishment. 

The proceeds benefit The Gulf Coast Arts Council, Foley High School Junior ROTC and the Alabama Free Clinic of Baldwin County, so you can feel good about getting active and supporting good causes! Now that's a good way to spread the love. 

For the super-romantics

Floating above the land in a hot air balloon is a very special activity any time of year, and Taking Off Hot Air Balloon Co. makes sure your experience is top-quality. The 3-hour event, including your participation from setup to packup, offers a unique glimpse into the workings of these beautiful balloons. Scheduled early morning or late evening to take advantage of the lighter winds, these excursions create incredible memories of your visit to the Gulf Coast. And the traditional post-flight celebration inducts you as an official member of the world of hot air ballooning.

Although lounging on the beautiful beaches and relaxing in the comfort of your Gulf Shores rental are perfectly romantic ways to spend your time, the region's activities are also well-suited for lovebirds looking to add some unique elements to their vacation.
