There are always fun things to do at the Gulf Shores, but the holidays are a particularly magical time of year. From the Artic Express to ice rinks, there’s something for everyone to enjoy and spread the seasonal cheer.
Ice Rink at the Wharf
From now until January 13th, the Wharf is hosting a true winter wonderland! This ice rink is open to the public seven days a week. There are skate rentals if you don’t own a pair, plus plenty of refreshments.
Caribe Marina Christmas Tree Lot
Nothing brings in the feeling of the holidays like a fresh, authentic Christmas tree. The Caribe Marina is now selling fresh trees until December 24th, from 8am to 8pm every day. There will be opportunities for pictures with Santa on some days, plus hot chocolate and artificial snow.
Magic Christmas in Lights
Bellingrath Gardens is home to one of our country’s best holiday light shows. There are more than 1,100 dazzling set pieces and three million lights ready for you and your family to enjoy after dark. The displays will run until December 31st, so there’s plenty of time to enjoy the sights.
Wales West RV Resort & Light Railway is offering a truly unique opportunity this month. You and your family will have the chance to ride an authentic steam train through a magical wonderland. There are lights, snow, and North-Pole themed decorations (including Santa), making this an immersive and fantastic opportunity.
