Alabama’s southernmost part is home to numerous outdoor adventures, making the region an exciting area to explore. Orange Beach is one area that makes this region a getaway destination for thousands of travelers. This part of Alabama receives tourists annually for various reasons, ranging from exciting attractions to exquisite accommodation spots. Due to these reasons, Orange Beach guarantees visitors an Orange Beach vacation worth the shot, regardless of period or reason. If you’re interested in visiting this coastal town, here’s a detailed three-day itinerary to help you explore the area.

Day One

The first day of your visit should entail visiting the welcome center, an area that lets you access free brochures, local maps, and firsthand information on everything that entails your stay in Orange Beach. While at the center, you can further interact with the staff and learn more about what to look out for when exploring different spots, especially restaurants. Once you sort everything regarding familiarization, head to your Orange Beach vacation rental and check in for a quick freshening-up session by diving into your rental pool. This therapeutic session of freshening up prepares you for an adventure-filled afternoon. Afterward, you can head to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo and interact with the animals, including kangaroos, Lemus, and monkeys.

A visit to the Safari Club, an in-house restaurant, is a great idea. Here you can try out the deep culinary brilliance that the establishment serves, which includes a Margherita wood-grilled pizza, a key lime, and drinks. Once lunch is over, you can a little break by soaking in the surroundings and enjoying the other amenities offered by the zoo.

After the re-energizing session, prepare to resume adventure by heading to The Wharf. This large entertainment district in Orange Beach promises a fun-filled evening for you and your loved ones. It’s an amazing spot to enjoy the multiple activities available in the area, like dining, shopping, and even trying out the Ferris wheel. After visiting The Wharf, you can spend the rest of your evening strolling in the district while viewing its impressive structures as you wait for the SPECTRA Laser Light Experience, a fantastic display of lights in sync with musical classics.

To cap off the incredible art display, a visit to one of the numerous eating establishments on The Wharf is worth it. Here, you can enjoy the rich seafood cuisine, including southern dinner classics that will wow your palate and prep you for a good night. After dinner, you can either try the Orange Beach nightlife or return to your vacation rental for rest.

Day Two

Start your second day by using our rental’s fully-equipped kitchen. You can prepare a sumptuous breakfast that’ll have you ready and kicking. If you’re not in the mood for a home-cooked breakfast, visit one of the many brunch restaurants offering fantastic breakfast options. After breakfast, prepare for a beach adventure by carrying all the beach essentials you’ll need for the day. This visit to the beach is ideal for taking in the morning sun as you prepare for a fishing adventure in the deep seas. If you’ve never fished solo before, try out the different scheduled fishing charters and tours offered in the area. The trips range from four-hour trips to 8-hour tours. You can pick whatever suits you and sail to the deep waters for the perfect catch.

Once the trip is over, you can head to the shores with your catch and prepare to feast by taking it to one of the restaurants that offer cook-your-catch services. Alternatively, you can save your catch for some home-cooked dinner back at your rental. If you prefer cooking your catch for dinner, enjoy your lunch by trying out the food offered by the numerous restaurants across the area.

At the beach, the end of lunch signifies the commencement of fun-filled beach activities, including relaxing while taking in the magnificent ocean views or trying out beach games such as beach volleyball. If you have kids, engage them by building sandcastles and trying other water and beach activities like swimming, playing beach soccer, and boating. After a day exploring the beach, you can head back, prepare yourself for dinner at Luna’s and try out the tasty crab and artichoke dip served in the restaurant.

Day Three

Start your final day differently by treating yourself with a southern breakfast delicacy of shrimp and cheesy grits. Enjoy this scintillating southern classic at Another Broken Egg Cafe, one of the multiple brunch restaurants in the area. After re-energizing, head to High S Branton Backcountry Trail for an exciting hiking adventure that’ll take you past varied ecosystems. The views along this trailhead are amazing. Enjoy these views as you take note of unique animals traversing across the trail. Once the hike ends, you can head to Louisiana Lagniappe for a unique Cajun and Creole seafood taste. Enjoy crab cakes that the restaurant serves before embarking on an adventure of perambulating the area as you usher dusk, marking the end of your exciting trip.

A Step into the Past

Alabama has a long and rich history as can be expected from any coastal state and this section of the state was once where the British attacked twice; once in 1812 in a battle we won soundly and again in 1815, in a battle that didn’t have such a happy turnout. Fort Bower was the small fort that won and lost those battles, standing in during the construction of Fort Morgan that began in 1812 but was not completed until long after the war of 1812 had ended. Located at 51 Hwy 180 West, this historic structure is still standing proud and can be a fun way to spend a few hours of your Labor Day escape. At this point, they aren’t offering guided tours, but you and your family can still enjoy a self-guided exploration of the Fort.

Labor Day sales are always the best sales and although we can’t promise that everything you want is special, a visit to Tallulah’s Treasures, 25122 Perdido Beach Blvd #6209 in Orange Beach promises to offer a plethora of good deals!
