Snowbird Nest


 Gulf Shores offers a wide variety of activities during the winter months.
You can be as busy as you like or just spend the day relaxing on our beautiful beaches!

Our soft, snow white beaches and average winter temperatures of 60 degrees are huge attractions for our visitors from the north.  But Gulf Shores offers so much more during the winter months!  If you haven't booked your winter stay yet, please call (251) 269-6766 and take advantage of deeply discounted rates for extended winter stays. 


Our snowbirds are definitely not "retired"; they are active and involved and enjoy all that the area has to offer.   Plus, there are activities that cater specifically to this group.  Check back here often for the latest Snowbird News.  If you would like to add an activity not listed, please email
