Meyer Vacation Rentals Coastal Currents 
March 2012 - Fun in the Sun at Your Beach

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Toss a Fish Soon
There is definitely no lack of people-watching action and fun in the sun at the annual FloraBama Mullet Toss, which is also described as the Gulf Coast’s Greatest Beach Party. Each year thousands of people gather to see the actual mullet tossing competition, but the party is not over when the winner is chosen. Hang around for music and fun times.

We’re flinging a Mullet Toss weekend special to you. Get a FREE night, valid 4/21/12 - 5/5/12, in condos and houses located at Gulf Shores and Fort Morgan, only a short drive from the Flora-Bama.

CONDOS: Buy 2 nights, get the 3rd night free.
HOUSES: Buy 4 nights, get the 5th night free.

(Valid for vacation stays 4/21/12-5/5/12; see website for details.)

Waterville Family Fun Day
Each year Waterville USA partners with Meyer Vacation Rentals and Century 21 Meyer Real Estate to open the amusement park for an entire afternoon of family entertainment for the unbelievably low price of $10 per person to support Relay for Life. In fact, 100% of the admission price goes directly to the American Cancer Society.

Our Relay for Life partnership provides you with a unique opportunity to treat the family to unlimited go-cart races and mini-golf. Ride the wooden roller coaster to your heart’s content or watch the joy on the faces of the little ones as they bounce on the trampoline, play in the House of Bounce and enjoy the kiddie rides. Note: The waterpark (which opens in May), Flowrider and arcade are not included.

Meyer is your beach vacation and concert connection. See a brief list of coastal happenings below. For details check our Gulf Shores/Orange Beach Calendar of Events and Gulf Shores Music Calendar to see what to include in your itinerary while you are visiting our beautiful coast.
