Why you should visit the beach for Easter

Easter at the beachWant to spend Easter at the beach? Who doesn’t, right? This year, Easter falls on April 16, so if you haven’t booked a place to stay yet, now’s the time.

Get up to 25 percent off a Brett/Robinson Vacations property with its Spring Break Beachwide Specials through April 26. That means more than a $300 savings on a four-night stay.

The weather is a great reason to visit during this holiday season. With temperatures in the mid-70s, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach usually experience sunny and warm days this time of year. That’s great for hitting the beach or the pool, or just getting out the shorts and flip flops.

A third reason you should visit the Alabama coast in April is the great fishing! Drop a line to catch speckled trout and redfish. The inshore fishing is awesome this time of year. You may even snag a Spanish mackerel, pompano or black drum.

While in town, hit up some of the local events like the Waterway Village Zydeco & Crawfish Festival on April 15. LuLu’s in Gulf Shores hosts its big Easter Egg Hunt at 2 p.m. on Easter Sunday. And The Wharf hosts Photos with the Easter Bunny on April weekends, then its Easter Egg Hunt on April 15.

Throw in all the other family-friendly attractions, the delicious seafood and the many shopping outlets, and you have more than enough reasons to book that condo now.
