The New Year Will Bring Fun Gulf Activities

Wow, November really flew by. Now we’re entering the last month of the year, which will also fly by. Before you know it the holidays will be over and the New Year will have begun—as will the dreary month of January.

It helps to have things to look forward to—like a visit to Gulf Shores & Orange Beach and a New Year dip in the Gulf. Not just any dip in the Gulf…the Kiwanis Club of Gulf Shores Slip & Slide Polar Bear Dip at Gulf Shores Public Beach in front of The Hangout. At noon on January 1st, you’ll have the opportunity to slide down a 33-foot two-lane slip & slide right into the Gulf. Those who brave this winter dip will be treated to a free buffet at The Hangout. Generally, I’m not big on swimming in less-than-warm temperatures, but I can be tempted with free food and the promise of a giant slide.

There will be other events starting off the New Year, including several concerts throughout the month of January. Be sure to check out the events calendar to keep up with the latest happenings.
