A very popular question asked by nearly any family member when planning the next vacation is, “Well what are we going to do there?” When you book your Gulf Coast Vacation with Emerald Coast By Owner, we provide the answers to those questions. With stretching from Dauphin Island, Alabama,  all the way down to the Forgotten Coast of Florida, those unique summer activities are always close by.

When visiting the Emerald Coast down along the shores of Alabama, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach give guests plenty of opportunities to make the most of their vacations. Waterville USA is a combination of an all out waterpark and complimentary theme park mixed together. Take a break from the sand and wear those kiddos out when spending your day at Waterville USA. With an endless choice of waterslides to choose from, from the lazy river and wave pool, to taking a visit over at the connecting theme park, staying busy will definitely be easy to do. Make some unique memories out of your Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Vacation by taking a boat or ferry ride over to the neighboring Dauphin Island. This opportunity really gives you a chance to dive into the Gulf Coast culture of Alabama, and lets you develop that unique connection. Don’t forget to stop by The Hangout for live music, great fresh seafood, courtyard games and an unforgettable time at their famous foam party! Be sure to book your Gulf Shores Vacation Rental here. 

If you choose to visit Florida as part of your Emerald Coast vacation, don’t worry! No matter what popular city you choose, your days will be more than fun filled.  Destin is a very popular family destination, all year around, leaving many choices of summer like activities whenever you are on a visit. A trip out to Crab Island is a definite must when booking your Destin Vacation. Rent a pontoon or jet ski from any local marina, and enjoy your sunny day wading in the waste deep water that acts as a giant sandbar. From fishing, to water obstacle courses and just some good ole relaxation, you will find your boat anchored down to tons of other boat filled tourists making the most out of their trip. Take a break from the sand one day and head on down Highway 98 to the Big Kahuna waterpark. Big Kahuna is a waterpark that will keep everyone in the family busy. From the wave pool and waterslides for the older kids, to the lazy river and kiddie area for the little ones, getting everyone to leave will be the hardest work of the day. Make sure to take a look at all of the Destin Vacation Rentals here. Right down the street from Destin is the family favorite 30A beaches of South Walton, Florida, home to the daytime and nightlife favorite, the family friendly Village of Baytowne Wharf. Filled with restaurants, shops, the infamous Baytowne Adventure Zone and much more, this is the perfect spot to visit anytime of your day.
