Orange Beach hotels
February 15, 2008
Savvy vacationers know that choosing the right accommodations for a vacation is just as important as choosing the location itself, and nowhere is that more true than in Orange Beach, AL.
Orange Beach, AL is home to many diversions, from dolphin cruises to outdoor concerts and sea turtle hatchings to golf and hundreds of exclusive shops. As a result, your accommodations can play a major factor in the direction that your vacation plans take. Below are some very important issues to factor in when deciding what kind of place to stay, and where in Orange Beach AL you want to be located.
- What are your vacation goals?
If your primary aim is to enjoy the sand and surf, you'll want to be certain to stay beachside in one of Orange Beach AL's many beautiful accommodations. Particularly if you like to walk the beach early in the morning or enjoy late night strolls, you might want to consider an ocean-view or even ocean-side room. Also, if you're bringing the whole family along, you'll probably need a suite frequently more economical in condo rentals than in hotels so that your nighttime stargazing doesn't keep the kids awake.
- Are you the adventurous type?
If you're into seeing and experiencing new things, ask around before making reservations, as property managers who own vacation rentals often have personal relationships with the owners of local attractions, and may be able to set you up with a coupon booklet or even a discount code for multiple adventures such as helicopter rides, SCUBA and snorkeling lessons and even deep-sea fishing. Orange Beach AL is known for its diverse natural setting, so even if you prefer to experience nature from behind the wind-screen of a speedboat or through the glass-bottom of a dolphin cruise, the potential savings and new experiences are well worth the minimal research.
- Are you planning any romance and/or quality family time?
A great way to bond with loved ones is to learn something new together, and golf is the perfect way to get a loved one involved in something that they can share with you for years. Many Orange Beach AL golf courses are set within the pristine beauty of the area, making nature lovers, fans of the sport and romantically inclined spouses all happy as you travel the dunes, hit some balls and enjoy learning new things about each other and your game. Before you make reservations, investigate the different golfing packages offered by your hotel. It may be worth mentioning to the manager or property owner that you've got some golfing to do, since you might find a great package in the offing.
