May Days are Made for Gulf Shores Vacations
June 22, 2014

In the month of May, the weather begins to heat up a little along the gulf coast and it’s perfect for a Gulf Shores vacation. Orange Beach, Alabama has so much to offer with sun, surf, food, fun local attractions, and lots of entertainment. Our Admiral’s Quarters Condos, Tidewater Condos, and The Palms locations offer some of the most breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico, and they are all just moments away from just about anything you need.

After you spend your day lounging on beautiful sugar-white beaches, kayaking, fishing, or catching waves, the local attractions offer even more fun during the month of May. Foodies will love participating in the L.A. Gumbo Festival between May 8th and 11th, (http://www.gumboforlife.com/index.php). Come and enjoy the food and meet popular chefs such as John Folse, Rick Tramonto, the Alabama Governor’s Mansion Executive Chef, Jim Smith; and see well known public figures such as Kenny Stabler, Hall of Famer Dwight Stevenson, along with Jim Fowler, and more.

On May 10th, enjoy the Orange Beach Wine Festival (http://www.gulfshores.com/things-to-do/calendar-events/details.aspx?id=75232). Enjoy wine tasting, food, good music and fun. While you’re there, you can also enjoy free boat rides on the bay. If you are into big game fishing, the Orange Beach Bill Fish Tournament begins on May 14 and ends May 18. (http://www.orangebeachbillfishclassic.com/).

If you are more into music, come and enjoy the Hangout Music Festival (http://hangoutmusicfest.com/) during your Gulf Shores vacation between May 16 and 18. There will be no shortage of music or fun! If you are still around on May 25th, you won’t want to miss the Foreigner and Styx concert (http://www.gulfshores.com/things-to-do/calendar-events/details.aspx?id=76501). You can also celebrate your extended Gulf Shores vacation over Memorial Day and enjoy the 75th Annual Luau on the Beach on May 26 (http://www.gulfshores.com/things-to-do/calendar-events/details.aspx?id=76640).
