*We had the great pleasure to be hosted by the awesome folks at Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Tourism. Some of our meals, services, and goods were complimentary. The views expressed are always of our own. Let’s gallivant, Bama!
This was our second Gallivant to Alabama Beaches in two years and this time it would be during our annual family Christmas trip and now within the spectrum of what the travel industry is calling a FlexCation. We still had work to do but figured we could do it on the road and on the white sand of these popular communities. Be sure to keep some of those hard earned vacation days saved up and get some of the daily work hours completed with beautiful views, delicious meals, and plenty of much needed breaks during a winter trip to Gulf Shores & Orange Beach! Let’s get some turquoise into this FlexCation with your beachologist, Professor WhiteSand!
The salt in the breeze, the tide within earshot, an endless view of the gulf, and a condo with all that you need for an HQ during a scenic and relaxing time away from your usual surroundings. This is Turquoise Place in Orange Beach and it’s beautiful location made this the heartthrob of our Gallivant to the Bama beaches!
Meet the Beach Moms
The Beach Moms were gearing up for our Alabama Beaches getaway long before we arrived. Angel was our mom and I could tell that this unique concierge service was going to be a wonderful one from the get-go!
Let the Beach Moms do some of the errands and planning for you while you’re staying in the area. Every moment you can spend enjoying yourself is valuable, and these fun loving ladies make sure that your getaway is even more fulfilling with their excellent service.
Get Out & Be Grownups
Alabama Beaches will always have the bells and whistles to keep the whole family entertained. This area also has plenty of avenues for the grownups of the group to kickback and enjoy the gulf coast with plenty of local beers, bars, and cigars to go around for everyone!
Rise & Shine Turquoise-Style
There’s nothing like waking up to the same sounds of the gulf that lulled you to sleep the night before. Opening the sliding door to a Turquoise Place balcony that’s filled with Alabama sunshine is one of the greatest “good mornings” anyone can have.
Breakfast Taco Time
Gulf State Park is one of the local gems of Alabama Beaches that produces some winding and wildlife filled trails through the southern wilderness. Peaceful, scenic, and a treasure for the residents of the area and the droves of visitors.
Back to the Balcony & Beach
There will never be a shortage of shopping options at Alabama Beaches. Souvenir hunting made easy when you turn down every major street in this community. Remember to save some room in your suitcases because you’ll want to bring some Bama back home with you!
Mom & Dad Night Out
Shall we stay in Alabama or head to Florida? Let’s do both and head to America’s most famous roadhouse and straddle the state line with a cold beverage at the Flora-Bama Lounge & Package!
Hit the Beach Again
One of the best places to go shell hunting is a straight shot drive down to Fort Morgan State Historic Site. A quiet cruise through the trees of Baldwin County and to the tip of Alabama Beaches. There will never be a visit when I don’t head back to Fort Morgan and it’s hypnotic shoreline.
Let’s Go Swimming
Stay Active at Gulf State Park
Back to our condo at Turquoise Place and it naturally invites you into a relaxing state of mind. There’s so much to experience in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach, but there’s something so gratifying about time spent in a phenomenal condo like this.
Go See the Lights
Mark your calendars for Christmas season in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach right now! This quickly became one of the greatest holiday trips we ever took and one of the huge contributors to this memorable Gallivant was The Wharf and all its Christmas cheer that lit up Gulf Shores!
Bye-Bye Beaches….For Now
One Last Pitstop
So much was packed into our FlexCation to Alabama Beaches and we still managed to find plenty of time for relaxation. The top reason we make the trek to this group of welcoming communities on the Bama gulf coast. We only spent four days here, but we were homesick for Bama shortly after getting back to Iowa City. That’s always a great feeling to have after a long road trip. And we can’t thank all of you enough for making this Christmas season one of the greatest ever. This is another getaway that Professor WhiteSand says to get the hang of, and make a routine of it. Santa totally got my letter!
