Low Cost & No Cost Gulf Shores Activities

It is so nice to see the spring break visitors back in the area this year.  So far it has been fantastic weather and looks to remain that way through this season. We wanted to give you a few ideas about low cost or no cost activities in that you and your family can enjoy while you are here!

The closest one to our area is actually Ft. Morgan!  You should check out this amazing fort if you haven’t yet.  It’s architecture is simply beautiful and it’s history is so interesting.  You could make a day of it and visit it’s sister on the other side of the bay on Dauphin Island.  It is only $5 to walk on the ferry and the cost to get into the forts is only $5 for adults.  Not only do you get some great history lessons but a beautiful ferry ride as well!

If you are more of an outdoorsy kind of person are you in the right place!!! We have multiple walking trails to enjoy in the Ft. Morgan area that are free.  You can also stop by the Bon Secour Wild Life refuge and get some great information and see some really neat displays of local wildlife.  It is all ther for you and your family to explore and enjoy.  If you are up for a little drive you could go to Orange beach and there are bike trails for you and your family to enjoy in this area. There are days of trails and miles of beautiful beach to enjoy. All of them are free!!!  Don’t forget your sunscreen and water.  Have fun hiking!!!

Finally, one of our favorites is to send folk over to the National Aviation Museum in Perdido, just to the west of Pensacola.  It is a little bit of a drive but worth it!  This museum has some of the most amazing exhibits you will ever see!  If you have kids (especially boys) or an airplane enthusiast you don’t need to miss this!  Don’t miss the I max theater.  Great shows are guaranteed.  There Is no cost to get in but they do accept donations.  There is a cafe on site and a great gift shop if you are looking for some special gifts.  This is  DON’T MISS on your trip!
