Finally made it to the Gulf Coast area, that's Orange Beach to be exact! For those that don't know this area is composed of coastal states that have a shoreline on the Gulf of Mexico are Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida, and these are known as the Gulf States.
I'm so thankful that we decided to end up here instead of South Miami, which is experiencing pretty bad flooding right about now. Plus I wanted my son to be able to drive up and experience this fun family vacation. So I rented the best beach front property I could find which put the beach in our backyard.
While here we went to OWA Family Parks and Resorts in Folley,ALABAMA , Tanger Outlet Mall, Perdido,Gulfshore,Cotton Bayou Beach, and ate a great Southern meal at Paula Deans Resteraunt and Chronic Tacos. We got a chance to play a lot of outdoor games at the beach such as frisbee, lacrosse, and blew bubbles. The best beach was Orange Beach due to the white sand and blue backdrop. Overall this was a much needed break and this SpringBreak mini vacation is one for the books.
