Father’s Day Guide to Gulf Shores, AL

On Mother’s Day we always seem to go all out, spoiling mom with fancy dinners, gifts, even beautiful trips where we remind her of how much she means to our families, but the dads in our lives always seem to be shortchanged. We are lucky to remember to buy them a coffee mug, a funny card, and send a text, probably with some message that rearranges the word father into something inappropriate, and our dads seem perfectly fine with the little we give. But our dads are the unsung heroes in our life, always there, rarely complaining, and rarely acknowledged, and this year, we at Alabama Beach Vacation Rentals encourage you to try something different, take them on a Father’s Day vacation to the beautiful white sand beaches of Gulf Shores and treat them to a stay in one of our Alabama Beach Vacation Rentals holiday hideaways, and this guide will help you spoil your hero in all the ways he deserves on a Gulf Shores Father’s Day you’ll never forget.

Hearty Breakfast

Now even as you are spoiling your father, the holiday will still look somewhat different than Mother’s Day does. You don’t need to prepare an omelet and mimosa for him to enjoy while lying in bed, instead, we suggest a visit to the Ugly Diner. Located at 2200 E 2nd Street, the appeal to this laidback eatery lies in the hearty dishes served and in the fact that dads will feel comfortable and at home as they chow down on their favorite breakfast meals. The Ugly Diner isn’t really ugly, and no, they aren’t calling the people who eat their ugly either, but it is a simple establishment, offering red-and-white-checked table coverings and blue booths and a patriotic flair to their all-American meals, something we feel your dad will appreciate as well!

Set Him Free

Dad’s life is a busy one spent doing everything for everyone, and on this Father’s Day adventure in Gulf Shores, we feel he won’t mind if you set him free for a few hours, especially if the freedom involves a fishing charter! Stressed Out Charters and Stressed Out Charters 2 offer 2- and 4-hour seafaring adventures guaranteed to make his fishing dreams come true. Both their inshore and offshore fishing charters are developed to help take away any remaining stresses dad may have, and because the captain knows all the best spots for catching the most and the biggest, this Father’s Day is destined to be one that the dad in your life never forgets. Call (334) 315-3686 to make reservations today; Captain Scott Luster is a popular one and his expeditions often sell out fast.

Lowering His Handicap This Gulf Shores Father’s Day

If dad had it his way, every vacation would be a golf vacation, and in the early days of June, the Gulf Shores vacation you are planning should be considered a GOLF Shores getaway! Kiva Dunes Public Golf Course, located at 815 Plantation Lane, is one of the best courses in Alabama and is the recipient of many awards, ensuring that dad’s play will be a good one and even if he doesn’t have the best of days, he can return again and again and work on lowering his handicap. Designed by Jerry Pate and offering a course that is challenging without being intimidating, course fees are moderately priced to easily fit into most vacation budgets.

Delight Your Favorite Military History Buff

Many of our personal heroes are also heroes in real life, having served their country in the military, and even as your dad may have left his service time years before, his fascination with the military lives on, making a visit to historic Fort Morgan a must do during your holiday getaway to Gulf Shores. Located at 110 AL-180 and open every day of the week from 8 AM until 4:30, construction of this brick structure was completed in 1834, and its protection of Mobile Bay was successful through four different wars: the Civil War, the Spanish American War, and both World Wars. Known for being where Admiral Farragut damned the torpedoes, it is also famous for being a wonderful example of masonry, featuring 40 million bricks, many of which were carefully put in place by enslaved African Americans.
