Festivals, Fresh Seafood & Fun: Dining & Nightlife On Alabama & Florida's Gulf Coast

After enjoying a relaxing day at a beach vacation condo or house along Alabama or Florida’s beautiful Gulf Coast, why not explore everything the coast has to offer once the sun sets in the Western sky? With all of the festivals, fresh seafood and fun things to do, there is always something new and exciting to explore.

Whether you're looking for an intimate dinner for two or a night on the town with friends, your favorite coast won't disappoint. The area boasts a great range of restaurants, clubs and bars where you can enjoy world-class seafood, dig into a rare steak, sip a refreshing piña colada or savor a creamy bushwacker.

A World Of Flavors

Nobody does food like we do in the South. If you're ready for excellent cuisine served in a relaxed setting, we’ve got you covered.

Why not indulge in some freshly caught oysters at one of the many seafood restaurants along the waterways and at inland locations? Shrimp is a local delicacy, and you’ll be spoiled for choice when you spend time here.

If you’re looking for something a little more quintessentially Southern, there's certainly no shortage of barbecue joints to choose from. After a long afternoon on a Gulf Shores golf course, sample a delicious rack of ribs or a juicy porterhouse at one of the area’s many fine restaurants.

Dance The Night Away

As the sun goes down, the Gulf Shores nightlife just gets started. Many of the area’s pubs and bars regularly host live musical acts across a range of genres, so whatever your preference, you’re likely to find it here.

Locations such as LuLu’s at Homeport Marina, Pink Pony Pub, Nolan’s and The Hangout are popular with locals and visitors alike, and there's always something going on.

One nightspot that's a must for live music aficionados is the Flora-Bama. Straddling the state line, this classic roadhouse prides itself on favoring local musicians and bands, and is one of the best places in the area to hear up-and-coming acts from around the South.

Refined Tastes

If you'd prefer something a little more sophisticated, head to the Villaggio Grille at The Wharf in Orange Beach. This charming establishment boasts fine wines, elegant décor and live music on the patio during the summer - perfect for evenings after a long day relaxing by the beach. Sit on the patio area outside for a little fresh air while you dine or sip some wine.

No matter what you're looking for from your vacation in Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan or Orange Beach, Alabama, or Perdido Key, Florida, there's something for everyone. Why not discover another side to the northern Gulf Coast and experience everything this piece of paradise has to offer?
