5 Compelling Reasons to Visit Gulf Shores in the Fall, Orange Beach, Alabama

Often when people think of beach house rentals, summer vacations come to mind. However, in the Gulf Shores area, ideal weather conditions extend long into the fall season, making it the perfect time of year to plan your trip. If you’re thinking of booking a fall getaway, explore the many benefits you’ll enjoy during this season below.

5 Perks of Visiting Gulf Shores During Autumn

1. Perfect Beach Days

Many beachgoers consider fall the ideal time of year for beach days at Gulf Shores. Because the days of scorching heat are gone, you can step out of your beach house rental and sink your toes in the sand, enjoying moderate warmth in the 70s or 80s. Plus, the Gulf of Mexico waters tends to remain warm for many weeks after a long, hot summer.

2. Reduced Crowds

Although many activities persist through autumn, you’re less likely to fight for parking spots and wait on lines after the summer ends. You can still go to the boardwalk and visit all of the best local restaurants, but thinner crowds will mean more attentive service and less waiting. 

3. Better Deals

With the reduced tourist traffic comes more competitive pricing. Because fall is technically considered to be the offseason, you’re likely to find better deals on lodging and activities throughout the area. But don’t wait to book your beach house rental, as other deal hunters may have the same idea as you.

4. Vibrant Nature Life

You can enjoy canoeing, picnicking, or paddleboarding in the sprawling Gulf State Park, which is also home to a lush blend of native flowers. Or, make your way to Bon Secour Nature Preserve, where you can spot diverse bird species as they migrate through in the fall.

5. Excellent Fishing

Anglers visiting the Gulf Shores in the fall will be delighted with all of the fishing opportunities this time of year. Without having to compete for a space on the pier, you’ll find the redfish and trout are running strong. Make sure to purchase a license and familiarize yourself with local limits.
