Alabama’s Gulf Coast is a hidden gem of a beach spot in the south. Right at the edge of the Florida panhandle, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have the best of both worlds: a quiet place for the family with lots of things to do. Blogger Marsida Salku, aka Mars, Queen of Everything, loves to travel with her family of seven to explore the nation. In her latest blog post, Marsida shares her family’s experience in the Orange Beach, Alabama, from a fun beachy stay to the adventurous activities for the kids. Here are some of our favorite photos from her trip.
