Save the Turtles 5K & 1-mile Beach Run

How to do Perdido Key with the kidsTo help your kids let out some of their energy, enter the entire family in the annual Save the Turtles 5K & 1-mile Beach Run, which takes place right behind Flora-Bama. All of the proceeds for this fun run on the beach go to help save the turtles that come to Northwest Florida to lay their eggs every year. The run is held during the Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival, so after running for a good cause, you're rewarded with awesome live music and hours of entertainment.

The beach

It might sound like a no-brainer, but Perdido Key's beaches will always be the best place you can take your kids. While the sun is shining bright in the sky, you can go for walks along the shore, dig holes, build sandcastles and throw around a Frisbee with all of your loved ones.

Once the sun sets, you can enjoy the twilight from the comforts of your beach retreat - never taking your eyes off the pristine shore.

National Naval Aviation Museum

The kids may not even realize they are being educated, because the National Naval Aviation Museum is so fascinating! With numerous planes, wartime and space displays, flight simulators and IMAX movies, everyone's curiosity will be piqued and your children will ask for more time to explore. Don't worry about your next meal - the Cubi Bar Cafe, which replicates the bar area of the Cubi Point Officers' Club from the Philippines, offers plenty to satisfy all tastes.

So plan now to kick back in a family-sized 3-bedroom condo in Perdido Key, Florida, located just 11 miles east of Gulf Shores, Alabama. Once you've experienced the beauty and serenity of the area, you'll know you've found your vacation home.
