Gulf Shores does have nature tours to take part in, shopping districts, golf courses and recreation centers, but don’t feel that you must see or do any one thing. The theme of this trip is “go with the flow,” so after consulting your inner barometer, see what the future holds. It may be to put on your shoes and hit the town, grabbing an ice cream cone with the kids and pausing to listen to a folk singer. Or, it could be to create an intimate atmosphere at “home” with the people you love the most. The backyard grill, the spacious kitchen, and the screened in porch will all encourage a fun and casual meal to take place, you know, the kind you’re always trying to create on regular days.
You’ll find that achieving lofty goals like family togetherness, relaxation, and getting a good night’s sleep will come pretty easily here. The power of high ceilings, walls of windows, tons of closet space and added bonuses like DVD players, washers and dryers, and board games can’t be underestimated. These small delights mean all the difference between a regular trip and a truly privileged one.
