Labor Day may only be a few days away, but you’re right on time to plan a quick beach getaway. The Alabama Gulf Coast offers the perfect spot for toe-dipping and sandcastle-building fun this Labor Day weekend. The white-sand beaches call you to slip off your shoes and wiggle your toes in the soft sand. Take a dip in the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico or relax in the pool by your Gulf Shores condo or Orange Beach hotel.

We’ve got some great last-minute deals, too. Check the Hot Deals and Cool Prices page for the latest listings, including 50 percent off beach houses and Orange Beach condos, free-night specials and weekend packages starting at only $349 for a limited time and while inventories last.

If you’re sad to see summer go, now’s the time to make a break for the beach. There’s a place in the sand waiting for you where you can enjoy a whole different state of summertime living.
