Have you made your 2018 New Year’s Resolutions yet? Lose ten pounds. Join a gym. Save more money. Learn a new trade or skill. Read more. Ugh. Those sound more like punishments than resolutions!
How about this instead:
With the new year rapidly approaching and everyone making New Year’s Resolutions for 2018 that seem nearly impossible to keep, we, at Sunset Properties, suggest making resolutions that are fun, memorable and attainable.
In short, make resolutions you can keep!
- Take a nap on the beach
Stretch out on a comfy beach lounge chair under a big colorful umbrella and let the sounds of The Gulf of Mexico lull you to sleep.
- Wear flip flops all day
Spend a whole day shopping in shoes that pop when you walk. SanRoc Cay in Orange Beach and Pelican Place in Gulf Shores offer superior retail therapy options. Flip flops welcome!
- Leave your phone and tablet turned off
Let the only calls you hear be the ones seagulls make to each other.
- Walk a nature trail
Take a leisurely stroll along one of Gulf State Park’s fabulous nature trails and just unwind within your surroundings.
- Cast a line from a pier
Watch a bobber dance in the waves from Alabama’s 1540 foot long Gulf State Park Pier. Fishing licenses are available online and day permits are available right from the pier office.
- Visit a Fort
Listen for the sounds of soldiers’ conversations from centuries ago you tour historic Fort Morgan. Built in 1812, Fort Morgan is surrounded with some of the most beautiful and peaceful beaches in Alabama.
- Ride a ferris wheel
Enjoy an amazing view from atop the ferris wheel at The Wharf. Check out the concert schedule for the Amphitheatre at The Wharf, as well. One of your faves may be playing soon!
- Eat oysters
Add some Tabasco, salt, and lemon to top off your raw or fried oysters at Doc’s Seafood Shack in Orange Beach or Tacky Jacks in Gulf Shores.
- Take a dolphin cruise
Book a day or evening trip out on the water and watch dolphins play. Sunset Properties has a program called Xplorie, where when you stay with us you receive one free ticket everyday during your stay to some of the local attractions, one of them being Cetacean Cruises.
Participate in the Alabama Coastal Cleanup in September or The Annual National Shrimp Festival in October and make new friends who love the beach just as much as you do.
Don’t these sound so much better than the traditional resolutions we’re supposed to make? We think so, too!
We, at Sunset Properties, want to welcome you to the Alabama Gulf Coast in 2018 where resolutions are enjoyable, memorable and even relaxing. Happy New Year and we’ll see you soon!
