March 2013 - Spring Beach Adventures

Easter is Hopping at the Beach
Spring is ideal for a family beach vacation with excellent temperatures and lots of fun activities. From quiet walks along the shore to a parasailing or dolphin cruise adventure, there are abundant choices for fun. Discover a waterfront venue for fresh seafood as you watch the boats go by or order take-out and spread your feast overlooking the sugar-white sands and blue waters. 

You can even get a FREE NIGHT with our Spring Special:

CONDOS: Buy 3 nights, get 1 more night free.
HOUSES: Buy 4 nights, get 1 more night free.
(Valid for vacation stays 3/1/13 - 5/11/13.) 

Off the Beaten Path
Zip from one part of the Gulf State Park at Lake Shelby to another, with seven towers and six ziplines covering a mile in length and up to a height of 90 feet - and learn about the environment and eco-system, too. Four of the Hummingbird Ziplines offer amazing over-the-water views of the coast. The Gulf Adventure Center at Gulf State Park also announced plans to soon expand the outdoor experience to include canoes, kayaks and paddle boards, bicycles and anything that is oriented toward coastal adventure. So each time you visit there may be more activities to explore.

Take a look (add FB video link) at what you can expect when you add this adventure to your next Gulf Shores area vacation.
