You’ll discover world-class music, fresh seafood from the Gulf of Mexico, opportunities for adventure, and so much more. Here are some of our tips on activities in Gulf Shores:

Visit the Beaches
The obvious best attraction in Gulf Shores is the beach. You’ll find miles of glistening shores where you can enjoy the sugar-white sand and emerald green water. Most Brett/Robinson properties are beach front, giving you access to a private beach just steps from your home away from home. IF you venture out, public beaches are free, and parking is as well. You can plan a whole vacation in Gulf Shores around visiting beaches like the Gulf Shores Public Beach and the Gulf State Park Pavilion, among many others you can find on this website.

Eat Fresh Seafood
There’s nothing quite like eating fresh seafood directly from the Gulf. Not only can you fish for various species, but you’ll find delicious seafood dishes in restaurants like Lulu’s, Original Oyster House, and Cosmo’s Restaurant and Bar. With spectacular waterfront views and live music throughout the year, you’ll enjoy the wonderful fresh fish options in Gulf Shores. 

Live Music Opportunities
Gulf Shores is the Alabama capital for live music. With both local and national talent, you can enjoy everything from country music to pop and blues. There are great venues in Gulf Shores, including Lulu’s, The Wharf Amphitheater, and The Hangout. There are also music festivals throughout the year, including the world famous Hangout Music Festival, which draws in crowds of thousands each year. 

Enjoy parasailing, waterskiing and other watersports for some action and adventure while you’re on vacation. With views high above the water, you can see the entire landscape beyond the Gulf of Mexico, including exquisite views of ocean life you can’t see anywhere else.
