Fishing opportunities abound

Although you can fish at many of Fort Morgan's beaches, jetties and piers, it might be a great gift idea to treat dad to a chartered fishing trip during your stay in Fort Morgan rentals. Take an inshore fishing charter and hook swimmers like speckled trout, white trout, red drum, tripletail, bluefish and flounder. You can take four-, six- or eight-hour trips, depending on how familiar you are with fishing and what you want to catch. 

Explore the great outdoors 

Just a short ferry ride from Fort Morgan condos and beach houses is Dauphin Island, which offers several opportunities for enjoying nature at its finest. The Audubon Bird Sanctuary is a perfect place for dads who are interested in the island's ornithological significance. This nature reserve also has trails through woods and a scenic lake if Dad feels like spending his special day surrounded by the beauty of the environment. 

Step into the past

Of all the locations in the Gulf Coast, Fort Morgan is the best destination for history buffs. The Fort Morgan Historic Park is a perfect addition to the itinerary if Dad loves learning about the past. Parents and kids alike will love exploring this fascinating fort, which played a critical role in the Civil War, the Spanish-American War and both World Wars. The living history program at this park helps visitors relive the many military periods the fort has been part of, and holds an annual event commemorating the Battle of Mobile Bay - the fort's most famous Civil War battle.

Get on the grill

Some dads may want to indulge in one of the most traditional ways to enjoy Father's Day - getting on the grill. Fort Morgan beach houses are equipped with full kitchens and many also have grills on their patios, making it easy to throw a Father's Day cookout. Pick up some fresh seafood at a local fish shop like Blaylock Seafood in Gulf Shores to experience the regional flavors.

The Gulf Coast is a perfect destination for the whole family, no matter the size. You can rent a five-bedroom beach house in Fort Morgan if you're traveling with a large family, or get cozy in a two-bedroom rental. No matter your needs and interests, Fort Morgan may prove to be the ideal Father's Day getaway.
