Gulf Shores-Kid Friendly Activities, Attractions, Rainy Day Fun
Family Guide to Fun on the Gulf Coast
From Dauphin Island to Perdido Key


Gulf Shores and neighboring Orange Beach, Fort Morgan, Dauphin Island, and Perdido Key are filled with an amazing variety of family-friendly activities.  While spending time on the beach is always fun, we also love exploring Fort Morgan, the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, and the Gulf Coast Exploreum in nearby Mobile.  When we meet other families at in Gulf Shores, they are often surprised and excited to learn of the variety of kids activities and attractions locally available, whether it's a rainy day or a sunny one. 

Here we share the great amusement parks & mini golf courses, fishing charters & dolphin cruises, kid-approved restaurants, and other activities we have found for kids of all ages.  Whether you're visiting for a summertime beach vacation, a fall weekend getaway, a family reunion, or spring break, you'll find fun family activities and great kid attractions to suit every budget, weather-scenario (rainy days included!), and taste.  We've compiled the information you need, so you can spend less time planning and more time having fun with your family.  Explore our site and come back often as we offer new tips and fun facts at the bottom of each page to help you get the most out of your vacation stay.

Gulf Shores Family Guide
Great news!

The Gulf Shores Public Beach in Baldwin County was just named the Cleanest Beach in America by the Natural Resources Defense Council! That area and the Gulf State Park Pavilion were among the 13 beaches that received a perfect 5-star rating. Two other Alabama beach areas were reviewed and received impressive 4-star ratings: the Little Lagoon Pass Beach and Dauphin Island Public Beach. These areas lost a star not because of diminished water quality, but only because they are monitored once a week rather than twice.  Find the report at:
