Gulf Shores Area Attractions

Most people come to Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Fort Morgan or Perdido Key for some well-earned peace and quiet, but don't let the laid-back Southern lifestyle and tranquil scenery fool you - there's plenty to see and do while you enjoy your beach vacation house or condo rental. Whether you're an adventure sports enthusiast or want to indulge in the area's vibrant nightlife, there's something for everyone on Alabama and Florida's Gulf Coast.

As anyone who has ever enjoyed a Gulf Shores area beach vacation can tell you, the warm temperatures draw you to the water. In addition to the beach, a popular way to cool off is a trip to the area's largest waterpark. Waterville USA is an exciting water and theme park located in the heart of Gulf Shores. Featuring roller coasters, flume rides, wave pools and more, this attraction is a must for visitors with kids of any age. A brand new amusement park opened just north of the Gulf Shores beaches. OWA, located in nearby Foley, features the Rollin' Thunder roller coaster plus 20 more rides to appeal to the whole family, retail outlets, and other fun places to explore.

Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo

This area has some of the most diverse wildlife in the South, but if you're looking for something a little more exotic, head to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo. Open year-round, this facility is considered one of the most unique zoos in the U.S. and is home to an impressive range of critters - from marsupials to macaws and tigers to tortoises, you can find them all here...and even pet some of them! The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo was also where the hit Animal Planet TV show "The Little Zoo That Could" was filmed.

The Track

Everyone in the family, from the youngest to the oldest, is in for a treat at The Track, one of the area's largest family recreation facilities. Here, you can enjoy a range of high-octane entertainment, including go-kart racing, and the adrenaline-pumping SkyCoaster. If you'd rather take things a little easier, opt for a round of mini-golf.

Pirate's Island Adventure Golf

Looking for a picturesque and memorable mini-golf experience? Pirate's Island boasts 36 holes of family fun. This pirate-themed attraction offers guests the chance to putt their way through a challenging course filled with swashbuckling Corsairs, cannons and nautical combat.

With so much to see and do, Gulf Coast vacations are an ideal way for the whole family to experience the beach and beyond. Whether you want to take it easy or get your blood pumping, there's something here for everyone.
