Make Memories on a Gulf Shores Spring Break Family Getaway

You don’t have to wait until school’s out for the year to enjoy memorable family vacations. Spring break is the perfect time for a fun getaway filled with sand and surf to Gulf Shores. Located on Alabama’s Gulf Coast, this town has everything you need to make the most out of your trip. After checking into your vacation rental from Beachball Properties, set off exploring the adventures that surround you.

A Guide to the Best Things to Do in Gulf Shores with Kids

No matter how old your kids are, there is always something to do near Gulf Shores that’ll entertain them.  

  • See who can reel in the biggest catch on a fishing charter excursion. Local guides like those at Lost Bay Guide Service or Fins and Family Fishing Charters can show you the best spots to cast your line.
  • Take in the views from above parasailing over the crystal waters. Blue Sky Parasailing and Watersports helps you soar above the Gulf of Mexico as you enjoy breathtaking views.
  • Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife that calls area waterways home on a kayaking adventure. For a guided tour, select from one of the various tours offered daily from Wild Native Tours. If you’d rather explore on your own, stop by Go Go Kayaks or Ike’s Beach Service to pick up rental kayaks.
  • For a memorable beach day, learn how to make the perfect sandcastle with a lesson from Sand Castle University. You’ll learn from talented builders all the tips and tricks to create spectacular structures.
  • Go for a sunshine-filled hike on an area trail. Gulf State Park features more than 20 miles of trails that take you through nine different ecosystems within the park.
  • A popular outing is setting sail on a dolphin cruise. Enjoy a two-hour dolphin tour with Wild Native Tours as your knowledgeable guide tells you about the area’s bottlenose dolphins and their natural environment.
  • Spend a day at Waterville USA. This 20-acre park features escape rooms, an amusement park, and waterpark attractions, so there’s no shortage of fun to be had.
