Spring, and Easter, are just around the corner. If you’re looking to take a break with friends or family this year, Alabama and its many beach towns offer a breath of fresh Gulf air and a unique locale. There are a variety of indoor and outdoor Fort Morgan activities, including Easter celebrations, for you to enjoy on your Fort Morgan area escape.
Take a vacation from preparing the elaborate holiday meal and let the area’s professional chefs at one of the many restaurants in the Fort Morgan area prepare the traditional Easter meal. Contact your restaurant of choice to find out the details like date, time, reservations, and whether they allow pick up or delivery of the special meal to your accommodations.
You don’t have to miss services just because you’re on vacation. The churches of Fort Morgan and the surrounding area are hosting services in observance of the special day. Contact your preferred place of worship and inquire about dates, times, and locations of services.
The beach destination of Fort Morgan and the surrounding area means plenty of beach time. Sunbathe, plant a beach umbrella, and spread out a blanket to read or have a picnic, swim in the Gulf, or get your exercise with a run or walk. Play in the sand and build sandcastles or any other beach activity your heart desires.
Gain a whole new perspective on where you’ve chosen to spend your Easter break and sail high over the water on a parasailing adventure. Take off from the deck of a specially designed, USCG-approved parasailing boat to fly high above the waters of the Gulf. Keep watch on the water from your bird’s eye view for dolphins, turtles, stingrays, and other sea life. Stay dry throughout the flight or wear your bathing suit for a refreshing dip in the water before flying up again to come down safely on the deck. Bring your waterproof or disposable camera to capture the memories from your perspective and ask about any pictures of video the company may take during your flight.
Fort Morgan Road Trail
Lace up your hiking shoes, grab a bottle of water and your sun gear, and prepare for adventure. The 5.6-mile asphalt trail starts just outside the western border of Gulf State Park and stretches west through neighboring Gulf Shores. The path runs parallel to Fort Morgan Road/Highway 180, through tree-lined areas and neighborhoods, and ends at the Peninsula Golf Club. The trail is an easy hike or bike, as it’s mostly a flat surface, but the eastern end of the trail has only a few gentle climbs – making it easy for groups of all skill levels to enjoy. Add some difficulty on the eastern end when you continue on through Gulf State Park’s Hugh Branyon Backcountry Trails.
Gulf Shores Museum
If you didn’t know much about Gulf Shores and the surrounding areas like Fort Morgan before you arrived, here’s your chance. The Gulf Shores Museum is located in a house that dates back to before World War II and stood as the beach house of Valerie Cole’s family from Mobile. Originally built in West Beach, the family donated the structure, and it was moved from that original location to its current home after Hurricane Frederic in 1979. The museum houses many permanent and temporary exhibits that tell the history of the area and offers various programs and activities for all ages and many interests throughout the year.
Gulf State Park
Wander two miles of Gulf beachfront, swim, surf, build sand castles, and enjoy any and all of the beach activities you can think of. Make use of the park’s beach pavilion where you can picnic or gather to celebrate together. If there are anglers in the group, they’ll want to rent some gear and spend some time at the pier. For groups looking for an adventure, try kayaking or paddleboarding around the area.
Celebrate Easter, but also make sure to plan plenty of time for relaxation. There are several spas in the Fort Morgan area that are ready to help you out with that total relaxation. Choose from services like mani/pedis, body wraps or scrubs, scalp treatments, and more. If the men of the group want a relaxing treatment, some spas offer special just-for-men services that cater to their unique needs.
