    Knock, knock. Who's there? Orange you glad you came?

    All joking aside, Orange Beach has it all. Surrounded by bays, bayous, and the Gulf of Mexico, this coastal city combines the bustle of a beachy resort town with the best Mother Nature has to offer. The mild winters and friendly atmosphere make the city ideal for snowbirds looking for serenity during the cooler months. The hot, sultry summers draw students, families, and friends looking to do some group bonding and have seaside fun. Relax on the shore, take a trip to the local amusement park, or commune with butterflies on a nearby nature trail.

    Orange Beach is a peach by land, sea, or air

    There are dozens of reasons to look for an Orange Beach vacation rental, but no one can argue with the number 1 draw—the beach itself. Catch some rays on the pristine white sand, wade in with your best bodyboard, consider a paddleboarding or parasailing lesson, or hop on a dolphin-watching cruise. The natural landscape makes for much to see away from the sea as well. Biking paths run through town and are shaded by palm and citrus trees. For a more thrilling view from the air, try a sunset helicopter tour.

    An island of kid-friendly adventure, and a museum of the sea

    Some visitors plop down on the sand in Orange Beach and never feel the need to rise. It's a perfectly reasonable plan, but other attractions may draw you a few steps from your Orange Beach vacation rental and a few miles from the sand. If there are kids in your party, you'll love Adventure Island, a theme park full of rides, go-karts, bumper boats, and mini golf. It's only a 6-minute drive from your next destination, the Orange Beach Indian & Sea Museum, which offers artifacts of the area's Native American and fishing history.

    Hot and bustling, cool and quiet, and everything in between

    The subtropical climate of Orange Beach means mild, wet winters and hot, steamy summers. Those summer temps attract tons of visitors, even in hurricane season (from June through September), and it's prime time for those who need a tan and don't mind a crowd. Spring temps are in the 70s, so you can skip the storms and still enjoy the outdoors, and locals say the fall is even better, as the skies grow less stormy and fewer umbrellas dot the sand. Winters are cool but still pleasant, and you'll likely find Orange Beach vacation rentals at lower rates.

    Meet a grinning gator in a peaceful park

    Ready for a break from sunbathing? Heed the call of nature. On the western edge of Orange Beach is Gulf State Park, with its 2 miles of rustic beachfront, and 25 miles of paved hiking and biking trails along the coastline. The closest trailhead to your Orange Beach vacation rental will likely be Cotton Bayou Trail, a paved hiking path that cuts through lush pine forests and leads to the rest of the park's backcountry walkways. Nature lovers who linger in the park will be rewarded with butterfly gardens, sand dunes, and the wetland homes of alligators.
