What’s the Best Time of Year to Visit Gulf Shores?, Orange Beach, Alabama

The Gulf Shores has become the premier vacation destination of the South, thanks to its unique perks ranging from a lively culture to pristine white sand beaches. As you plan the vacation of a lifetime, you’ll want to maximize your trip by visiting at the right time of year. The vacation rental experts at Sugar Sands Realty & Management in Orange Beach, AL, have explained when to visit the area depending on your priorities.

When to Schedule Your Gulf Shores Vacation Rental


Spring is an ideal time to visit this area. The temperatures and humidity combine to make the weather pleasant, with highs averaging around 86 degrees Fahrenheit. The area gets very little rain during the spring. There’s a lot going on, so you’ll find plenty to do, but it won’t be as busy as it will get in the summer. This means that you’ll find your vacation rental is a little more affordable, and there might be extra room on the beach.

The summer is the busiest part of the year for tourism, so beaches will be the most crowded from June through August. However, those who like hot weather and lively excitement will enjoy this season. Due to the high demand, beach house rentals will need to be booked well in advance and may cost more per night. If you want to visit in the summer but want to miss the bulk of the crowds, book in early June or late August.


Temperatures are still pleasant through November, as highs range between 88 degrees and 68 degrees. There’s usually rain or snow one day a month, so visit at this time if you’re okay with chances of precipitation. Tourism is slow because of the cooler and wetter weather, so this is the most affordable time to visit.
