There is something magical about a holiday vacation at the beach. The normal stress of the holidays just melts away as you gaze at the waves and enjoy the company of your loved ones. And, gathering your family together on the Gulf Coast is an easy way to make that happen! Our rates are lower, there is still plenty to do in the off season, and you can enjoy smaller crowds.
Here are some of our favorite ideas to make your holiday getaway a time to remember:
- Family Photos – If you plan to have the entire family together, take advantage of the memory with professional photos! There are lots of great local photographers who can take beautiful group shots on the beach, in town or in the state park.
- Share Experiences – Even in the fall and winter, there are many things you can do in our area. Visit OWA, take a long walk on the beach, take a boat ride, shop at the outlet mall, bike rides on the Backcountry trail, and so much more!

- Cook Together – Many of our condos have recently renovated kitchens. And all of them are well stocked with the appliances and gadgets you need to make a great holiday meal as a family. We would love for you to try out one of our family favorites:
- 6 medium potatoes, peeled
- 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 1/3 cup chopped green onions
- ¼ cup butter
- 8oz. sour cream, room temperature
- 1 tsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. pepper
Boil, cool and mash potatoes. Add cheese until almost melted. Stir in sour cream, onions, butter, and salt and pepper Mix well and pour into 2-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake in oven at 350 until bubbly, about 45 minutes.
- Try a Popular Restaurant – If you’ve visited in the spring or summer, you know that many of the best restaurants require a wait. Now is your chance to get right in.
