Here are five things to do in Gulf Shores aside from fishing:


  1. Visit Gulf State Park: Explore the natural beauty of Gulf State Park with its pristine beaches, hiking trails, and abundant wildlife. You can also rent bikes or kayaks to further enjoy the park's offerings.
  2. Relax on the Beach: Gulf Shores is known for its beautiful white sand beaches. Spend a day soaking up the sun, swimming in the clear Gulf waters, or building sandcastles with your family.
  3. Explore Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge: Take a break from the beach and explore the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, home to diverse ecosystems including coastal dunes, wetlands, and maritime forests. It's a great spot for birdwatching and enjoying nature trails.
  4. Visit The Wharf: Head to The Wharf, a vibrant entertainment district with shops, restaurants, and attractions like the Ferris wheel and mini-golf. Don't miss the nightly SPECTRA light show during the summer months.
  5. Try Water Sports: Experience adrenaline-pumping activities like jet skiing, parasailing, or paddleboarding along the Gulf Coast. Many rental shops and tour operators offer these water sports experiences right in Gulf Shores.


These activities offer a great mix of relaxation, adventure, and exploration while visiting Gulf Shores.
