As the summer draws to an end, we just aren’t ready for the carefree days and vibes to stop. Even in the hottest places on earth, there is a magic that accompanies a summer’s day and we still have a deeper tan to achieve, a greater peace to discover, and more tropical beverages to imbibe! We at Alabama Beach Vacation Resort can’t do anything to slow the passage of time, but we can provide the most comfortable and luxurious escapes in which to enjoy the final holiday of the summer, Labor Day with its long weekend and one last opportunity to play, relax, and celebrate the joys of the season! Falling on September 4th this year, the summer in our little section of paradise will still feel like summer and as you explore the activities you can enjoy in Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, and Fort Morgan, coming home to our holiday hideaways will help expand the opportunities for fun and relaxation! This guide to the best way to enjoy an Alabama vacation over the long Labor Day weekend will give you a little something extra to look forward to in the waning days of the season!
Tacky Jack’s Bloody Mary 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run, September 2 in Gulf Shores
A joyful run on a beautiful summer’s day is an activity many people can get behind and Tacky Jack’s Bloody Mary 5K & 1-mile fun run offers a fantastic way to enjoy the long weekend! Starting at 7:30 in the morning (when it is still cool!) and offering a variety of cash prizes, participants are encouraged to wear their favorite football team colors as our football-obsessed coastal village acknowledges this weekend as the kickoff to the season!
Turnpike Troubadours, September 2, The Wharf Amphitheater in Orange Beach
Music and summer go together like peanut butter and jelly and when you get to enjoy live performances outside under the summer’s sky, well, there’s no better way to celebrate this holiday dedicated to not working! The Turnpike Troubadours, a country band based out of Oklahoma, is coming to town this Labor Day weekend and with ticket prices starting at $72 (increasing as the seats and the views get better!) this fun event will fit into most travelers’ vacation budgets!
Fort Morgan State Historic Site, 110 AL-180
There’s no reason you have to participate in an organized event to have a perfectly wonderful time and the history buffs in our midst will obsess over the opportunity to explore a spot that took a major role in the Civil War and was prominent in 4 wars altogether! Fort Morgan State Historic Site offers a glimpse into the history of war time while also paying homage to the skills of local bricklayers; built of over 40 million bricks, many of which were laid by enslaved Americans, this site will be an interesting addition to your summer adventures in coastal Alabama!
This Way to the Beach!
White sands, turquoise waters, and sea oats swaying in the sea breezes come together to create the perfect playground for your holiday excitement in both Gulf Shores AND Orange Beach. Check out the public beaches of Gulf Shores, staking your claim on the section of beach you have been eyeing from your Alabama Beach Vacation Resort oceanfront condo, and spending the day frolicking in the surf, enjoying sandwiches you packed in the cooler, and relaxing under the slightly cooler September rays of the sun. Or, for those who chose one of our Orange Beach cozy condos, do the exact same thing on the beaches of Orange Beach! In both cases hanging around until the sun sets in a fiery ball over the Gulf is highly recommended, but if you can’t hang that long, be sure to pour yourself a chill beverage and enjoy the same views from the patio or balcony of your Alabama holiday hideaway!
At Home with Alabama Beach Vacation Resort
Your best adventures may take place within the confines of our holiday havens, offering comfort, style, and that beachy vibe that convinces guests that summer can last forever, at least in Alabama! Providing spaces that are light and bright, walls of windows offer unobstructed views of one of the most beautiful regions on earth! Start your days with a sunrise walk along the shorelines of the Gulf of Mexico, returning to your comfy bed when the sun is golden against blue skies, and end every evening raising a toast to Mother Nature’s second-best performance! Hanging out by the resort pools, grilling freshly caught fish on community barbecues, and even ensuring you continue looking fit in your brand-new bikini by working out in the fitness center; these activities and so much more can be enjoyed during your celebration of the holiday in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, or Fort Morgan!
