Locals know about the beauty of southern beaches. Even still, many miss out on the hassle-free holidays on Alabama beaches and the fabulous off-season trips there!
Where to Eat for Holidays on Alabama Beaches
Traditions are fabulous, but sometimes a new tradition may be just the ticket for relaxation and family together time during this sometimes stressful season of the year. A trip to Alabama beaches (Gulf Shores or Orange Beach) during the holiday season offers rewarding moments and I’ve listed a few here for your consideration.
If you insist on your own holiday family meal with your own treasured recipes, then a condo with a full kitchen can still allow for that. Added value – eating that beautiful meal on a balcony overlooking the ocean.
If you need a break from cooking, then check out several area restaurants who will prepare a holiday feast for your family. Cobalts, Voyagers at Perdido Beach Resort and Hazel’s are just to name a few serving full holiday meals. The Gulf Shores web site has a full listing of area restaurants for your convenience. Added value – no one has to do dishes!

DEALS this time of year make it a budget-friendly time to get away! Lots of area lodging partners offer specials during the holiday seasons. Check out Spectrum Resorts, Perdido Beach Resort and Young’s Suncoast to see if you can find an accommodation that fits your needs. Chances are you can now afford that fancy room or condo you’ve been swooning over for a while.
Getting the whole family together can be tricky, but sometimes when there’s a beach trip involved, it is more enticing. Everyone loves to get away and have a few days to rest and unwind especially leading up to the hectic holidays. Alabamians from any point in the state have no more than a six hour drive to the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach area. Added value – family together time.
Things to do during Holidays on Alabama Beaches
The weather is still awesome on Alabama beaches even in November. You can expect weather in the 60s which is warm considering the rest of the state can be anywhere from high 30s to 50s this time of year. You’ll have the beach practically to yourself, and although you may need a long-sleeve shirt instead of shorts and a tank, the serenity of the beach is still soul cleansing.
Head over to Foley’s Tanger Outlets for a day of shopping. There are sure to be fantastic bargains during the holidays, so this is perfect! And, while you are in this little city of hidden gems, be sure and visit Lambert’s Cafe (Home of the Throwed Roll) for authentic comfort foods in a casual atmosphere. Lambert’s offers a dining experience you’ll never forget.
Experience the family togetherness that happens during holidays on Alabama beaches. It might just become your new tradition.
