School might be back in session for the 2012-13 school year, but the Alabama Gulf Coast is keeping the entertainment going all through the fall for the adults. To celebrate my kids getting out of my hair, I’m heading to the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach area along the gulf coast for a bit of dancing and relaxing without having to hear “Mom, are we there yet?” or “Mom, can you buy me this?”
With Labor Day weekend just around the corner, there are some wonderful travel deals and packages to be found, so check out these upcoming events and plan accordingly!
SEC Beachfest – August 23-26 will feature SEC coaches, players, a golf tournament, and entertainment by the B-52s and Doctor John. Tin roof!
Lynyrd Skynyrd – August 25, the Amphitheater at The Wharf
Chicago and Kool & the Gang – September 2, the Amphitheater at The Wharf
Alabama Restaurant Week – From now until August 26, participating Gulf Shores and Orange Beach restaurants are offering specials to celebrate this food event. Visit the Alabama Restaurant Week official website to make plans.
Eat Your Way to the Beach – I’ve been having fun planning my meal itinerary on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. If you’re planning a visit, this is a tasty way to anticipate your gulf coast beach vacation. Be sure to check out the Eat Your Way to the Beach official website for all the social media links.
