Autumn Along the Alabama Coast

This season, we’re looking forward to the cool breezes coming along Alabama’s beaches. Visiting in September through November means shorter wait times at all your favorite dining spots, a cool climate for relaxing, and plenty of good times to be had! Check out our list of must-do fall favorites and let the gourd times roll.

Fresh Seafood

Life is truly an (autumn) breeze here in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. The golden days of fall are a time when folks down south like to kick back and just take it easy. Why should your vacay activities be any different? Need a restaurant with no wait times? Take your pick! Fan favorites like DeSoto’s Seafood Kitchen, Big Mike’s Steakhouse, Sea N’ Suds Oyster Bar, and more, are ready to serve you upon arrival. Still looking for that seafood fix? Join the Alabama Gulf Coast for beloved traditions, such as The Annual National Shrimp Festival, to taste and sea the finest flavors of the coast. Come celebrate the season with live music, local vendors, and have a shrimply delightful time! 

Seasonal Sweets + Seasonings

It’s no secret that with crisp weather comes all kinds of candy cravings. This seasonal sugar rush is quite common here on the Alabama Gulf Coast, and luckily we have just the cure. Get your decadent caramel apples from Kilwins, fill your bags with rich truffles at Chocolate Corner and Ice Cream, or warm up by sipping hot chocolate from The Southern Grind Coffee House. Parents and 21+ friends, if you’re looking for a tempting treat just for adults we recommend a bewitchingly-good bushwacker from Flora-Bama Lounge and Oyster Bar, Beach House Kitchen and Cocktails, Sandshaker at The Wharf, and so many more! Let’s be honest, it’s nice to trick-or-treat-yourself every once in a while. 

Cozy Times

As we all know, fall and winter can quickly become your busiest seasons. From holidays and family gatherings to seasonal festivities, how does one find time to relax? Here at Sugar Sands, we’re in the practice of starting our long winter’s nap just before the leaves change color and soaking up the softness of the autumnal season. Nothing says “cozy” like a 2 bedroom Sugar Beach retreat or a home away from home at Bayou Breeze. A stay with us guarantees tranquility, and offers a moment to take a break from the hustle and bustle of life. Book your stay today and join us as we fall in love with the amber sunsets of autumn in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach!
