May has arrived, and most schools will be letting out for summer vacation soon. Summer is a great time for kids to relax and play, but they can get bored quickly if there aren’t enough activities available. To keep your family active and engaged, we recommend visiting our area for a unique vacation. We’ve listed a few key reasons you and your family will love Foley, Alabama.
Many families want to take vacations but hesitate when they see the prices associated with traditional destinations such as Panama City, Orlando, Charleston, or Wilmington. By contrast, the Foley area has plenty of affordable hotels and condos either on the beach or within easy walking distance. Most beach houses and condos are equipped with all necessary modern amenities. This makes it easy for families to purchase groceries and cook meals at home rather than spend money at restaurants. These amenities make a night in more fun and relaxing as well, so families won’t be tempted to spend more money than they originally planned.
Activities for Everyone
Most family-friendly vacation spots are geared primarily toward one age group in the family. A certain location may have plenty of theme parks and activities for children, but not enough attractions for adults. Another location might be too heavy on museums and quiet activities for young children. Our area has a good balance of activities for children and adults, including attractions everyone can enjoy together. For children, we have places such as The Wharf and the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, famous for its lemur exhibits. Adults can visit museums and battlefields like the one at Fort Morgan or take nature walks through our many parks and trails. Parents will enjoy introducing their kids to classic vacation amusements like go-karts and miniature golf.
Almost everyone dreams of a perfect beach getaway, filled with tropical blue waters and pristine white sand. In reality, many beaches fall victim to pollution and an influx of algae by the time tourist season begins, dampening hopes for a pleasurable vacation. In the Foley area, however, we’re dedicated to keeping our beaches clean and environmentally friendly all year. By the time your family arrives, our many beaches will be swim-ready with breathtaking scenery and warm, clean water for hours of swimming and wave jumping.
Coming to the Foley area is much easier than trying to drive through congested traffic to other popular beach towns. Many of our tourists fly into Mobile or Pensacola, Florida, which are both easy drives into Foley. This makes travel time shorter and much more enjoyable.
