Gulf Shores in August is Perfect for a Girls Getaway

Ladies it’s time for a break! You worked hard this summer keeping the children and grandchildren happy! Now it’s time for some “me” time with the girls!

5 Reasons Why Gulf Shores in August is Perfect for Girls


1) No Lines.
With families returning home for school and work, going out to dinner with the girls in August means no waiting! Getting ready and showing up for dinner is more relaxed, no pressure to get there before the lines or for a reservation. Grab drinks at the Gulf Restaurant and rest your toes in the still warm sand. Then, after dinner go upstairs to Fishers to split some desserts. It’s your time to treat yourself!

2) Fewer Kids.
Gulf Shore summer vacations are fabulous for families. But come August the beaches aren’t teaming with excited toddlers and teens. Phoenix pool time is so much more relaxing! Spend a day finishing off your tan while floating in the Lazy River without all the extra splashing.

3) Guys Can Come, Too!
Send the guys off to go deep sea fishing in the gulf, golfing without a wait, tennis, racketball, basketball or just a simple relaxing time at the pool catching up. Gulf Shores is a great guy’s destination!

4) Great Sunsets.
The sunsets are still beautiful in August in Gulf Shores. Get a steak at the Cobalt while enjoying gorgeous evening views over the marina. On the way back to the condo, stop in The Yard for dessert! It’s the latest and hottest milkshake bar on Gulf Shores. People are going nuts for their over the top shakes.

5) Hit the Outlets.
Fewer families heading into Gulf Shores means less traffic around the island. The outlet malls have great deals going on, and the pace is so much slower. Grab the girls for a shopping day and buy something to remember your perfect August vacation with your friends.
