Your Gulf Shores Adventure Awaits

You may never get tired of hanging in the condo and staring at the ocean, but adventure awaits! Here are some of our favorite spots:

Hiking and Nature

The Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge Pine Beach Trail takes you through maritime forest, scrub, and dune habitats, a saltwater lagoon and freshwater lake, and finally, the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.


Kayak the Little Lagoon with a rental from the Down Under Dive Shop.


Dozens of local companies will take you gliding across the Gulf. We’ve seen dolphins and sting rays and turtles on our adventures with Top Tier Watersports in Orange Beach!


Bring binoculars and dolphin-watch right from the condo balcony, or see them up close on a Sunset dolphin cruise on the Sunny Lady.


Take a day trip to the National Naval Aviation Museum, the historic Pensacola Lighthouse, and if you’re lucky watch the Blue Angels practice!


Take a day trip to Alligator Alley, where you can feed the gators, hold a baby, and check out the 800-pound Captain Crunch and his pals in the swamp.

Good Eats

The BEST KEPT SECRET in Gulf Shores is Hog Wild BBQ. You’ll go wild for their delicious Alabama white sauce on smoked pork or chicken. Other favorites: Ruby Slipper (brunch), Playa (fancy dinner on the wharf in Orange Beach), and Foam (coffeehouse). If you’re staying in to grill, pick up some fresh Gulf Coast shrimp and red snapper from Gulf Shores Seafood.

At the Condo

Walk out the back (north) door and watch the sun set on the Little Lagoon or do a little fishing from the public pier! In the morning, walk out the back (north) door, go west toward Lagoon Pass Park, and walk next to the Lagoon Pass for a morning sunrise walk.

About Fresh Perspective Vacations

Gretchen and Derek

​Once upon a time, Gretchen and Derek relocated from the prairie of South Dakota to the mountains of Tennessee and never looked back. From hiking to playing in the river, having the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina in their backyard spoiled them forever. 

Next, they discovered the Gulf Coast, specifically the sleepy little southern town of Gulf Shores, and started making family memories there. The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina came next, with hiking trails around Chimney Rock and the Hickory Nut Gorge and living the lake life at Lake Lure.
