You could be flying high this spring, too.

Sugar-white sand, turquoise waters and an atmosphere that invites fun are just a few of the reasons why spring break in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is so memorable. For some, just lying on the beach soaking up the rays is the way to unwind while others prefer activities including kayaking, parasailing and beach volleyball. These are just a few of the ways to enjoy your time in one of the southeast’s premier vacation spots.

Make your spring break one for the record books with a dolphin or sunset cruise, a zipline adventure across Lake Shelby or a ride on the southeast’s tallest Ferris wheel. If nature is more your thing, take a hike at the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge or the Hugh Branyon Backcountry Trail. The nightlife on the Alabama Gulf Coast is as warm as the sun at the end of the day. Share a drink while listening to live music at a number of locales.

No matter how you choose to spend your beach spring break, you’ll experience a whole new state of fun in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
