Kid Friendly Fun on the Alabama Gulf Coast
Calling all kiddos! We’ve got a host of family and kid-friendly activities we can’t wait to share with you. Parents, we know planning a vacation everyone will enjoy can be a challenge–especially when traveling with kids in different age groups. Never fear, we’ve done the work so you can handle all the play. Here is your guide to planning a retreat the whole family will never forget!
Get your game on with a little action-packed fun at The Track Family Fun Parks and Fat Daddy’s Arcade. Your big kids can race to their heart’s content on one of many exciting go-kart courses, while little ones can kick it in Kids Country. Bring the fun indoors to the arcade where you can win prizes, challenge your dad to a round of Hoop Fever, or team up with your mom to beat the Giant Claw game!
After you’ve collected your prizes, take a trip to The Wharf. You’ll find shops and activities for mom and dad, and plenty of places for the kids to play. Build a new bestie at Build-A-Bear Workshop, work as a team at Breakout Orange Beach, snap a group selfie at the Cool Shots Selfie Museum, or catch a movie at the AMC Theater located on Main Street!
Finish off your day with a round of good times on the green! That’s right, it wouldn’t be a family vacation without mini-golf. Visit Shrimpy’s Grill and Golf where you can play 18 holes of fun on their newly renovated Fishing Village course. Parents, grab a $3 cocktail from inside and get the little ones a yummy chicken finger basket with hush puppies!
Dinner is Served
Moms and dads, we know catering to the appetites of multiple children can make for an interesting dinner time experience. That’s why we’ve found a few of our favorites everyone can devour! Try Tacky Jack’s in Orange Beach for savory shrimp tacos and a welcoming atmosphere. Kids will enjoy the comfortable, fresh-off-the-beach feel while parents enjoy a cold drink on a calm evening.
Let good times roll at Lulu’s in Gulf Shores. Children can release that burst of energy in the playground and arcade areas. Find a new look at the hair wrap and henna station, or sit back and soak up those bayside views. With frosty beverages and a menu that accommodates individuals who need gluten free options, everyone can find a mouthwatering meal at Lulu’s!
When you’re ready for that end-of-the-night sweet treat, find your flavor at Del’s Ice Cream, located on Perdido Beach Boulevard. With 36 cold and creamy options to choose from, picking a place to stop for dessert has never been sweeter.
