Family fun in Perdido Beach

The town of Perdido Beach hugs the shores of Perdido Bay and is squeezed between Soldier and Palmetto Creek. If you're looking for a family summer vacation, there are few places that measure up to this Alabama hotspot. It might be quieter than most of the retreats along the southern coast, but that doesn't mean you'll be short on things to do. Some like to while away their days on the sandy shores, while others can hop on fishing charters to go after trophy sailfish, or hike along the many trails in the nearby Gulf State Park. There's a lot waiting at your Perdido Beach vacation rental.

Over 6,000 acres of adventure in Perdido Beach

If you're looking for adventure, you'll find it at the nearby 6,000-acre Gulf State Park. It's easy to reach and when you arrive you'll have countless opportunities for outdoor family fun. If you've brought your rod, you can kick back and cast in your line from the 2nd-largest pier along the Gulf Coast. The allure of the white-sand beach and turquoise ocean is too much for some. Those who aren't beach dwellers can hike along the backcountry trails, which vary from 1 to 13 miles long. Some of the very same trails were used by the Native Americans for 1000s of years.

Over 450 years of history to discover at Perdido Beach

While Perdido Beach attractions might be a little thin on the ground, there's no shortage of things to do in neighboring Pensacola Bay. It's been more than 450 years since European explorers landed on these shores. If you're a history buff, don't miss a visit to the 19th-century sea forts of Barrancas and Pickens. While you're there, try to a make a little time and visit the National Museum of Naval Aviation, which depicts the region's importance to flying history. If you're lucky enough to nab a Perdido Beach vacation rental in June, you can join the Fiesta of Five Flags celebrations.

Try Perdido Beach in the shoulder seasons

If you're looking to escape the city for a little summer break along the Gulf Coast, your best bet is booking up your Perdido Beach vacation rental early, as it's the busiest time of year. Between June and August, families with kids off from school descend to splash around in the cool ocean and catch a little beach time. That said, this far south the climate is mild year-round. If you travel in the shoulder months, the slightly cooler temperature can be more comfortable and there are several nearby festivals and outdoor concerts to immerse yourself in.

A twitcher's delight in Perdido Beach

Wildlife lovers who bag a stay at a Perdido Beach vacation rental won't be far from the critters along the coast. This part of the Gulf Coast is used by many of the migrating bird species. If you're a twitcher, don't forget your camera because you're not going to want to miss catching snaps of the black skimmers and blue herons. If you visit at the right time, you might even see Kemp's Ridley or loggerhead turtles hauling themselves up the beach to lay their eggs in the sand, while later in the year the hatchlings break away and make their journey back into the sea.
