Let us help you find the last minute deal for you

Finding your next home with Sunset Properties - John did an outstanding job for us in selling our unit @ The Indies. Sunset Properties has also managed the unit for us for the past 15 years and their team is the best. Very professional and they really take care of their clients and guests. Great experience all around! Jonathan
Renting with Sunset Properties - Everything was perfect! Sunset Properties is the only way to go!! A.Huffmaster
Renting with Sunset Properties - I loved staying in this condo at the Phoenix West. The beds were very comfortable and I got a good nights sleep every night I was here. The view of the beach, pools and lazy river were spectacular. The TVs had all the streaming services so you could pretty much watch what you wanted. Had everything needed in the kitchen and bar along with a drip coffee maker and Keurig. The refrigerator was large and looked fairly new, enough to hold all you would need. I would highly recommend this condo for any trip to Orange Beach. Would definitely stay here again! J.Marrone
Renting with Sunset Properties - The location of the property itself was very nice and clean.  The condo was even nicer in person and actually very roomy.  Everything was clean and stocked very well.  There's a great view of the beach.  My favorite part was how quiet the location was.  There wasn't much traffic and we rarely even seen other people.  The beach was beautiful and very private.  At most, we shared it with maybe 20 other people at one time.  One time we were the only ones on the beach.  There's a 20-30 drive to all the tourists type things depending on traffic which isn't too bad and there's a Dollar General just a few miles up the road in case you forgot something.   S.Parker
Finding your next home with Sunset Properties - John Bobe is the most honest and reliable agent I have worked with. He was able to get me in to see the properties as soon as they were listed, and he always returned my calls as soon as possible. John made the process as painless as possible, and he is very knowledgeable about the market and the   real-estate laws. He went the extra mile to find the right investment property for me! I will definitely use him again in the future for any of my Alabama real estate needs. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in purchasing a personal property or an investment property! His knowledge is unmatched in this area D.Friend
Renting with Sunset Properties - The Golden Yona property is exquisite! It is clear that the owners give attention to every detail and want to make you feel like you have had a well deserved get-away - and we definitely did! The weather was beautiful and even the couple of days that it was chilly, we could still sit on the balcony and enjoy the spacious living room and open kitchen concept while hanging out and visiting with family. Great place to rent - doesn't feel like you are renting, feels like home! I would highly recommend the Golden Yona property for your next get-away! V.Tabeek
Renting with Sunset Properties - Doing business with Sunset Properties is always a pleasure. Everyone that works there is always very helpful and kind. I use Sunset Properties exclusively when I come to the beach every year because of the experience with the folks that I come into contact with there. J.Moon
Renting with Sunset Properties - I cannot say enough good things about Indies 603 and the amazing staff at Sunset Properties!! Everything was spotless, had everything we need and the check in and checkout process was flawless. Communication was amazing with the staff and very easy! Do not hesitate to book here or any other location with Sunset Properties. J.Eagle
Owner Review - I have used Sunset Properties for almost 10 years and have been completely satisfied with their management of my beach property. Becky and the rest of the staff are extremely knowledgable and professional and I have the utmost confidence in them. they take care of all the daily requests and needs of our guests. Many of our guests are repeat customers and I think it is partly due to the ease and comfort of working with Sunset Properties. Whether you are a property owner or looking for property to rent, I highly recommend Sunset Properties. R.Olivier
Finding your next home with Sunset Properties - John looks after the little things and does not let you forget. Example was the $450 savings he reminded me about by using my existing title insurance. I forgot to look for it and John made sure it was done. John's wisdom during our price discussions with the buyer really showed his   experience. He also shined at closing with some last minute negotiations he took on with the Condo Owners Association. Pro through and through. J.Livergood

Last-Minute Vacation: 5 Reasons to Visit Gulf Shores and Orange Beach

Published Date:

Last Updated:

Share post:

Do you ever find yourself wishing you could just have one more vacation before the end of the year to relax before the holiday festivities start? Or perhaps you enjoyed a late summer vacation around the Labor Day weekend and can’t stand the thought of having to wait until the New Year to plan another trip. Regardless of your reason, it sounds like you have the infamous “travel fever” and need some inspiration to book a last-minute vacation. Don’t worry, we have the perfect place to visit – Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama! Visit  GulfShores.com  for more information on experiencing the Gulf Coast.

gulf coast alabama

Whether you are looking for the perfect late season beach destination, or perhaps you want to sample some delicious local cuisine before having to deal with families coming over and a whole lot of home-cooking, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is the perfect late-season getaway for a plethora of reasons.

gulf shores and orange beach cuisine

We have been fortunate to visit this stretch of Alabama coastline throughout all times of the year, and we can 100% attest that the “shoulder” season in late fall, or even during the winter months, is an ideal time to getaway and enjoy the best of this part of Alabama.

gulf shores and orange beach

Let’s take a look at five reasons (with the caveat that this barely scratches the surface as there are a myriad of other reasons to explore this beautiful coastline!) why Gulf Shores and Orange Beach will be your perfect last-minute vacation location.

gulf shores and orange beach

Visit the Beach in Winter

Ok, so the thought of heading to the beach with your swimsuit and sunglasses in the middle of winter may sound a little crazy but actually it’s not as crazy as it sounds when it comes to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.

gulf shores beaches

If you are visiting in the late Fall or even winter months, you can frequently enjoy days that are warm enough to head to the beach and enjoy a late season relaxation on the 32 miles of pure white sandy beaches. The warm, humid climate tempered by sea breezes offers an ideal environment to enjoy the beach experience, even if it means taking a blanket to ensure those cool breezes don’t spoil your late season adventure.

gulf shores and orange beach

While you may not be visiting the beach all day, primarily because there are so many other cool things to do in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach at this time of the year, you can certainly find time to take a stroll along the beach, perhaps sample the Gulf of Mexico (depending on where you are from, you may find the water still warm enough to take a quick dip!), and just relax among the gorgeous surroundings.

gulf shores and orange beach alabama

One thing is for sure, regardless of what time you visit Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, those incredible sunrise and sunset pictures are waiting for you to take the time to visit the beach and capture that memorable moment. We still believe that this area is one of the best spots anywhere in the world to enjoy a perfect sunset experience.

gulf shores sunset

Indulge in Local Seafood and Other Cuisine

Not yet convinced that Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is the perfect getaway spot? Ok, so the beach in the late season may not be for everyone but one thing is for sure, the cuisine options along this stretch of coastline will satisfy everyone’s appetite. Perhaps the best thing about a late season getaway to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is that everywhere is quiet and for the most part, you are only mingling with locals who also find this the best time to head out and experience their favorite local restaurants.

local seafood gulf shores

Don’t worry about 2 or 3 hour wait times which unfortunately can be common during the peak season, instead you can frequently take your pick of restaurants and simply walk in and be seated. The choices are endless and it would be remiss of us to highlight only a few options, but of course, we want to wet your appetite on the best places you cannot afford to miss.

For breakfast, Brick and Spoon located along Canal Road, Orange Beach is a definite favorite of ours for a variety of reasons. The infamous “Bananas in Pajamas” is a perfect sweet treat to start the day, but if you prefer a more savory option, the Eggs Benedict are to die for and definitely highly recommended.

brick and spoon bananas in pajamas

Other options to start your day include Sunliner Diner, The Ruby Slipper, or a variety of coffee shops that also offer great breakfast menu items (more on these later!).

ruby slipper eggs benedict

For lunch, head to The Gulf, a uniquely designed restaurant that was constructed from shipping containers to enjoy a decadent Lobster and Shrimp Roll, Shrimp and Grits, or Tuna Poke Bowl. Any of the local seafood options are great choices and you can enjoy a relaxing dining experience while enjoying the sea breeze from the nearby Gulf of Mexico.

gulf shores and orange beach seafood

If you still have room for a late evening dinner, the options are endless. Our favorites include GTs on the Bay, Cobalt, or perhaps if you are looking for something other than seafood, Cactus Cantina offers a great Mexican experience.

Enjoy Natural Beauty

The Gulf Coast has an incredible selection of beaches to relax and enjoy those epic sunsets. However, you may be surprised to hear that there is so much more on offer in this area of Alabama, especially if you love the great outdoors and want to embrace nature. One of our favorite spots is the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry which offer 15 miles of unique trails for visitors and locals alike to enjoy six distinctive eco-systems.

backcountry trails gulf shores

Whether you prefer to hop on a bike courtesy of the free bike-share program that has several stations throughout this area, or perhaps you enjoy walking on foot to soak in the surroundings, there is something for everyone to enjoy here. Fishing is available in several areas of the park, and this is also one of the most pet-friendly areas if you are looking for somewhere to walk your dog.

hugh s branyon backcountry trails

Another great way to explore nature in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is to enjoy a kayaking excursion around the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. This is a great opportunity not only to admire the natural beauty throughout the Gulf Coast, but also to see a variety of wildlife species that also call Gulf Shores and Orange Beach their natural habitat. Throughout the beach dunes and rolling pine-oak woodlands, visitors may see species such as migratory birds, nesting sea turtles, among others.

Sip on Your Favorite Espresso

A trip to the Gulf Coast in the fall or winter will undoubtedly offer cooler temperatures than during the summer. Dependent on your definition of “cool” will likely determine how you find the climate at this time of the year, but even during the winter months, the average of mid-50s and into the 60s can still be considered as “mild” by many. Regardless of your definition, this is the perfect time to enjoy the collection of coffee shops to either warm up or perhaps sample an iced concoction.

gulf shores and orange beach coffee

Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is home to a collection of amazing local coffee shops , so regardless of where you choose to go, you can be sure you will walk away having experienced your favorite espresso beverage.

southern grind coffee house wharf

The Southern Grind Coffee House has two locations, at the Wharf and along Perdido Beach Boulevard at INDIGO. Recognized as “offering guests more than a cup of coffee”, this is definitely a great place to relax, mingle with locals to get other recommendations on places to visit while on the Gulf Coast, and indulge in a variety of delicious drinks or dishes depending on the time of day you choose to visit.

buzzcatz coffee and sweets

BuzzCatz Coffee & Sweets is another great choice, especially if you one to sample the delicious, and infamous, cinnamon rolls. One of the lesser known options is Happy Pappys Coffee House, but offers equally mouthwatering options whether you are visiting for a drink, or need something with a little more substance.

happy pappys coffee shop

Enjoy History and Culture

For those that love to learn all about the local history, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is home to historic Fort Morgan which was the site of the Battle of Mobile Bay during the Civil War in 1864. Today, visitors can head along the Gulf Coast peninsula to Fort Morgan to take a self-guided tour of this historic site.

In 1864, Union Admiral David Farragut ordered his fleet to charge the heavily mined bay, yet Fort Morgan remained strong and today, displays fortifications from a variety of significant historic encounters. Whether you are interested in seeing the casemates or the various batteries that are still standing, a tour of this site is something that everyone will appreciate, regardless of your interest in Civil War history.

Visitors to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach will also have the opportunity to experience a variety of other attractions and activities. From attending Sand Castle University to creating your own crafts at the Clay Studio, there are ample experiences that all the family will be able to enjoy.

Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is the perfect place to organize a last-minute vacation, especially if it’s late in the season and you are just looking to enjoy a relaxing getaway. From the gorgeous beaches to the variety of awesome restaurants offering authentic, local seafood and other cuisine options, there is plenty to enjoy during a short or long term getaway.

Whether you are inspired to book a trip to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach this year, or perhaps looking for something in the New Year, you can be sure that you won’t be leaving disappointed! The friendly welcome that will greet you regardless of where you stay and what you experience makes the Gulf Coast of Alabama a place we cannot wait to return time and time again…we think you will feel the same also!

Renting with Sunset Properties - I cannot say enough good things about Indies 603 and the amazing staff at Sunset Properties!! Everything was spotless, had everything we need and the check in and checkout process was flawless. Communication was amazing with the staff and very easy! Do not hesitate to book here or any other location with Sunset Properties. J.Eagle
Renting with Sunset Properties - This was our first rental experience with Sunset Properties after going to Gulf Shores for 10+ years and let me say I was impressed!! I don't think we will use any other rental property. Our condo and stay were wonderful, any questions or concerns before or during our trip were taken care of. We loved our unit in Ocean House II. Thank you Sunset Properties for providing such a great experience!! We'll be seeing you next year. Z.Boggs
Renting with Sunset Properties - This was our 5th year, I believe, coming to Fort Morgan. I discovered Sunset Properties that first year and have used them every year and never looked back. They take care of you, have great customer service, and some of the best prices around. They treat you like family and make any wrongs (if any) right. You will not go wrong choosing Sunset Properties, give em a try, and if you enjoy the area like we do you will be back year after year like us. J.Williams
Finding your next home with Sunset Properties - John was available as needed and conducted himself in a professional manner. J.Fallert
Renting with Sunset Properties - We had a lovely vacation stay at the Awbrey House in Gulf Shores this past Thanksgiving. The property itself was lovely, and the location was amazing. Working with Sunset Properties was so easy, and they are great communicators. Something happened to the outside grill before our stay and they worked through the holiday to get a new one delivered to the house while we were there. Will book again with them next year! H.Dilworth-Schrimsher
Finding your next home with Sunset Properties - John did an outstanding job for us in selling our unit @ The Indies. Sunset Properties has also managed the unit for us for the past 15 years and their team is the best. Very professional and they really take care of their clients and guests. Great experience all around! Jonathan
Owner Review - We would never use any other company to rent our house, because the people at Sunset Properties take a personal interest in our property.  All of these little things help the bottom line. And, the service--it is unbelievable.   . Mrs.Vaughan
Guest Property Review - Crystal Towers is the place to stay when hitting Gulf Shores for baseball! Clean property, amazing pool and beach access. Highly recommend for your next team experience! Jon
Renting with Sunset Properties - We stayed at Dream and what a dream it was. This is our 3rd time renting with Sunset and at this point I see no point in renting anywhere else. No drama. The property was awesome. Location was ridiculous. We can't wait wait to come back. S.Nelson
Finding your next home with Sunset Properties - John looks after the little things and does not let you forget. Example was the $450 savings he reminded me about by using my existing title insurance. I forgot to look for it and John made sure it was done. John's wisdom during our price discussions with the buyer really showed his   experience. He also shined at closing with some last minute negotiations he took on with the Condo Owners Association. Pro through and through. J.Livergood

This Is the No. 1 Family Beach Vacation Spot in the U.S.

While Alabama might not be the obvious choice for a beach vacation, Gulf Shores claims the top spot.

larrybraunphotography.com/Getty Images

If your idea of a perfect summer involves soaking up warm sunrays and splashing in refreshing waves, America’s coastlines are brimming with delightful seaside towns just waiting to be discovered. U.S. News and World Report recently analyzed destinations across the U.S., considering factors like safe waters, kid-friendly attractions, restaurants, accommodations, and prices to determine the best family beach vacations in the U.S.

While Alabama might not be the obvious choice for a beach vacation, Gulf Shores claims the top spot, with 32 miles of pristine white sands. Whether you're seeking a taste of history at Fort Morgan, exhilarating thrills at Waterville USA, or peaceful hikes at Gulf State Park, there’s something to keep every family member engaged. Stay at the Beach Club Resort , an 86-acre village-style property offering beachfront condos, lakeside cottages, and an array of amenities, including two pools, five dining options, an arcade, and a playground.

Outer Banks, North Carolina, is second on the list, a premier surfing destination on the East Coast. This idyllic cluster of barrier islands is home to the wild horses of Corolla, five historic lighthouses, and the iconic Wright Brothers Memorial in Kitty Hawk, where the world’s first powered flight took place. While there are several luxury properties like Sanderling Resort , renting a vacation house near the beach is also an excellent option, especially for large families. 

Anna Maria Island in Florida takes third place, with seven miles of glistening beaches, mesmerizing sunsets, and various family-friendly activities ranging from interacting with marine life at the Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium to painting sand dollars at Shiny Fish Emporium. Of course, seafood is a must when visiting the island and the nearby Cortez Historic Fishing Village, with local spots like Anna Maria Oyster Bar, Tide Tables, and Sandbar Seafood & Spirits serving fresh catches daily. Exploring the island has never been easier, thanks to a free trolley system and a new ferry service that links the island to downtown Bradenton’s Riverwalk.

Ranked fourth is Kiawah Island , South Carolina, which is home to the luxurious Kiawah Island Golf Resort . With a vast portion of its land designated as protected habitat, this Lowcountry hideaway south of Charleston invites visitors to revel in a slower pace of life and reconnect with nature. The best way to see the island is to hop on a bike and pedal along its 30-mile network of paths, including Kiawah Beachwalker Park, the island’s only public beach.

Destin , Florida, rounds out the top five family beach destinations. Alongside its sister city, Fort Walton Beach, this jewel of a town is renowned for its crystal-clear emerald waters and sugar-like sands. Kids will love taking a dolphin cruise with companies like Smile and Wave Adventures, learning about marine animals at Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park, and visiting Gator Beach, where they can safely interact with alligators. As for dining and accommodations, options are numerous, with kid-approved restaurants like Rockin’ Tacos, Harbor Docks, and Lulu’s and cozy beach resorts like Henderson Beach Resort and Beal House Fort Walton Beach .

Class 5A Boys: Galvan’s late goal lifts Gulf Shores past Guntersville for title

Gulf Shores’ Talan Galvan scored 2 goals to cap a fierce rally as the fifth-ranked Dolphins stormed from behind to secure a 3-2 overtime victory over No. 2 Guntersville in Friday’s Class 5A boys championship match at Huntsville’s John Hunt Park.

Gulf Shores (21-7-1) won its first boys soccer title in school history after falling to John Carroll in last year’s championship.

“We thought we had a good plan, really excited about it, and taking those two goals down was disappointing,” Gulf Shores coach Danny Norton said. “But we’ve been down before and we knew we had to keep fighting. We were in their half a lot early on but couldn’t finish. We had to be patient, knock the ball around and find our opportunities.”

The Dolphins came out firing, taking 2 shots in the first 2 minutes, but Guntersville was the first to find the back of the net.

Following a yellow card on Jordan Simon, Guntersville’s AJ Shumate scored on a penalty kick in the eighth minute to give the Wildcats an early 1-0 lead in the match. Shumate, a junior, scored a school-record 61 goals this season and has 162 goals in his career.

Brandon Manganaris added a second goal in the 39th minute, his first shot of the game, and scored off an assist from Cooper Davis as Guntersville held a 2-0 lead at the halftime break.

It did not take long for Gulf Shores to reassert itself, Noah Guthrie cutting the advantage to 2-1 off an assist from Bryan Nunez in the 53rd minute. The Dolphins had 10 shots on goal but only converted 3 with Guntersville goalkeeper Slaide Mohn notching 7 saves.

“I was on the bench but I saw it was a nasty volley,” Galvan said. “Noah put it away and that’s what put us back in the game.”

Galvan provided the equalizer in the 67th minute on a penalty kick following consecutive fouls called on the Wildcats.

“They were hyped up,” Norton said. “At that point, I had a feeling we were going to win this game. Once we got that first one back, it raised our fighting spirit. These guys have not given up all year and they deserve it. Talan is such an incredible player and we knew he would bury that (penalty kick) to equalize it.”

Neither team could break the stalemate in the waning moments of regulation, or the first overtime, and the match almost ended in penalty kicks until Galvan scored the game-winning goal heading into the final minute of the second overtime session.

“I saw the rings, baby, that’s all I saw,” he said. “We’re bringing home the Blue Map. I didn’t think we were going to PK’s and never had a doubt in my mind. I knew we were going to score and it was on me to bury it because it was a gimme.”

Guntersville (25-4-1) has four semifinal appearances in the program history and advanced to its first title match this season. The Wildcats fell to eventual 2023 champion John Carroll in last year’s semifinal match.

“I’m proud of the kids,” Guntersville coach Zack Ross said. “We made some adjustments at halftime that if you look back on it, maybe we shouldn’t have gone so defensive. We play in a tough area, probably five playoff quality teams in that area, and that helped us make it here. It just wasn’t meant to be for us this year. We had two seniors on the field so we have a lot of talented players coming back.”
