So you and your soul sisters are daydreaming about a weekend getaway. You’re thinking you might like to take a weekend and get away from everyday life, but you’re not sure where to go and what to do. You’re not even completely convinced you should take a mini-vaca, but you think it might be fun. We think it’s time you “take the plunge” and let yourselves get away and have some fun at the beach!
Here are 5 Reasons to Plan a Girls Weekend at the Beach in Gulf Shores:
- Take a break
You have all worked all year taking care of your husbands or boyfriends, the kids and your jobs. You’ve given just about as much as you can give to them all, and you’re actually a bit tired. You know you need a break from your everyday responsibilities, clients, contracts and time clocks. You looked in the mirror and said to yourself: it’s about time I did something for me! You got together with your sister friends and y’all all agree you need just a couple of days of barefooted fun. What better place to take a break than the beach in Gulf Shores? After all, it’s only a short road trip away!
- Let someone else cook
Sure, you love to cook. Preparing a culinary masterpiece is something you’re proud of. You take pictures and share your fabulous creations with your besties on social media. But why not let someone else cook for you? Why not just sit a cozy table surrounded with your favorite advice-givers and gossip-partners, share a bottle of wine (or two) and let someone else serve you for a bit? The Alabama Gulf Coast is packed with fabulous places to do just that!
With so many great choices for seafood, steaks, pizza and burgers in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Fort Morgan, you’re sure to find the perfect place . For great seafood, try local faves CostAL or King Neptunes. Want a delicious steak? Check out Cosmos for great food and a super friendly staff. Hungry for a big ole seafood pizza? You must visit Papa Rocco’s! How about some gumbo sure to make your mouth happy? Sea-n-Suds is the place for gumbo. Would you like a yummy cold Bushwhacker to sit beside your meal? Flippers has one of the best Bushwhackers on our island! What’s the best part about all this? You won’t have to cook or clear the dishes! All you have to do is enjoy!
- Shop and buy stuff for yourself
We understand. Sometimes you just want to shop and buy things for yourself. Sometimes you just need to indulge your inner shopping Queen Beast! Retail therapy at its finest is all around. You and your besties could spend a whole day at SanRoc Cay in Orange Beach just shopping and chatting. Pelican Place in Gulf Shores is also a great place to spend some time. And you cannot forget Main Street at the The Wharf in Orange Beach. Along with these fabulous shopping centers and malls, there are also lots of smaller boutiques and shops all along Gulf Shores Parkway and Beach Boulevard.
- Kick off your shoes and kick up your heels
After a day of shopping and beach combing with your tribe, you want to sing along with a band and do a little dancing. Well, you’re in luck! The Flora-Bama, our favorite road house is just a few minutes away. If you planned your mini-vaca for late fall, you might even get to enjoy The Frank Brown Songwriters Festival. There is always someone singing and dancing there!
Another great place for food, spirits and laughter is Lucy Buffett’s LuLu’s located in Gulf Shores. Another fun place to spend an evening is Live Bait. With fabulous cocktails, great music you can sing along with and a unique appetizer menu, Live Bait has been an island favorite for years. Oh, and don’t forget to get a tee shirt from each place you all visit! What a great way to have a cool souvenir collection and remember one of the best weekends ever!
