Relax and enjoy Spring Break with the family on the beaches of Gulf Shores. There are so many ways to unplug and reconnect with nature and friends and family.

Enjoy A Relaxing Gulf Shores Spring Break

After months on end of the daily school/work grind, a week at the beach is the perfect getaway for a Spring Break vacation.

Leave all your daily distractions behind and unplug for a while in Gulf Shores, where family togetherness and wholesome fun meet.

The white sand beaches and turquoise waters along the Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast are the perfect setting for family members to reconnect with nature after being cooped up inside for far too long.

Gulf Shores area beaches are wide and the sand is soft and squeaky under your feet, creating the perfect setting for building sandcastles during the day, splashing in the waves gently rolling ashore, taking long relaxing walks along the shoreline and so much more.

When you’re ready to take a break from the beach, head up to your beach condo or house for a meal or snack you can easily prepare in your own, fully equipped kitchen.

Dine with friends and family indoors at your dining table or out on your private balcony or deck. There are so many reasons to choose a vacation rental for a family vacation.

Go back to the beach for a while, or step out to one of numerous attractions that are open during Spring Break: amusement parks, arcades, outlet shops, restaurants, entertainment complexes, and the list goes on.

While there are 38 miles of beaches to enjoy, attractions, shops and restaurants are never far away from your vacation rental.

For example, the Park at OWA is just a few miles north of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach beaches and is only a short car ride from Tanger Outlets of Foley.

At OWA, you’ll find 21 fun amusement park rides, including the giant Rollin’ Thunder rollercoaster. Many more high-adrenaline rides are steps away, but there are plenty of low-key, kid-friendly rides. Not to mention a midway-style collection of fun games, concession areas and shops.

There are also some fun restaurants on site, including the new Wahlburgers restaurant, which is known for family favorites like Mom’s Sloppy Joes and Mac ‘n Cheese with Smoked Bacon.

Also new is the Groovy Goat, where the menu tempts with soups and salads, seafood and steaks, and other local specialties. Numerous beers are on tap.

The new Hershey’s Ice Cream Parlor will delight with its 1950s vintage vibe and full selection of yummy flavors.

If there are golfers in your group, spring is a perfect time to hit the links. Award-winning courses dot the area. For non-golfers, or those looking for a twist on the game, a round of footgolf might be in order at nearby Glenlakes.

Sure, you could stay at home for Spring Break and work on the yard or paint your kitchen in the latest trendy color. But why disappoint the kids when you can break free from the school/work grind and plan your fun and relaxing beach vacation to the Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast?

Your Spring Break vacation starts by selecting your favorite beach house or condo in Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan, Orange Beach or Perdido Key.
