Looking to treat your mom to something special this Mother's Day? A trip to the Gulf Coast of Alabama is a perfect way to celebrate motherhood and give your mom an experience she won't soon forget. When you rent Gulf Shores beach houses, you're near many fantastic restaurants and lounges, not to mention the stunning white sand beaches right outside your doorstep. This year, moms and their families can also travel just a bit north to the Art in the Park event in Foley, Ala.
Located about 20 minutes north of Gulf Shores rentals, Foley makes a perfect day trip for those looking for a little variation in their beach vacations. Since 1973, the Art in the Park event has drawn fine artists and craftspeople to sell their wares during this weekend-long event each May. With all the regional arts and crafts to choose from - more than 100 exhibitors showcase their work at the event each year - you might find an even better Mother's Day gift for your mom!
In the past, the festival has drawn as many as 25,000 visitors, all of whom come to explore the arts and culture of Alabama as well as enjoy the natural beauty of Foley Heritage Park. The event raises money for arts in the community, helping the county continue to offer cultural enrichment programs to the area, especially the Baldwin County schools. Join in on the fun if you are staying in Gulf Shores condos this Mother's Day!
