Spending some time at the beach is a wonderful way to beat the winter blues. Average temperatures in the mid-60’s means you can still enjoy beautiful beach walks, kayaking on the back bays, or trail biking and hiking. These are the “slow” months, which means fewer visitors and more wide open spaces. And, best of all, there are some amazing events that make a winter vacation at the beach so much fun. Here are just a few upcoming local events we love.
Mardi Gras 2024
From Mobile to Orange Beach, Alabama’s Gulf coast boasts a rich history of Mardi Gras parades and festivities. And the parades are fun and family-friendly. The season kicks off on Dauphin Island on January 13, 2024. And you’ll find parades all over the area until Fat Tuesday, February 13. Click this link to see the full parade calendar.
