Father’s day is always a great weekend to travel to Gulf Shores! Of course fun in the sun is why most people come to Gulf Shores, but visitors usually take an evening or two and visit the local attractions or the outlet malls. This year be sure to take some time off of the beach and catch the Balloon Festival in Foley. There are lots of Family Friendly events, sales, and contests to participate in throughout the Foley and Gulf Shores area for your family to enjoy. Be sure to come down for the fun.
