5 Things to do in Orange Beach AL in July

1. 4th of July Celebration

There's no better place to celebrate Independence Day than on the beach! Orange Beach is a family-friendly destination with plenty of activities for the 4th of July. If you're visiting for the holiday celebration, be sure to check out the massive fireworks show at OWA. The entertainment and shopping destination will host live music, a variety show, and, of course, a huge fireworks display in the evening. 

2. Music Under the Marlins

Every Sunday from June 6 to August 8, The Wharf is hosting live music from 4 pm to 7 pm at Marlin Circle. Grab your beach chairs or picnic blankets and get ready for a fun evening of music and entertainment. The Wharf is home to dozens of shops, dining options, and entertainment, so be sure to plan your day around other activities here. 

3. Have a Beach Day (or Several)

The beaches of the Alabama coast feature white sand, warm waters, and wide-open spaces. Whether you want to enjoy the tranquil settings of remote beaches or take in the lively tropical vibes, you'll find a stretch of beach here to suit your fancy. Keep in mind that summer is very hot along the Alabama Coast, so always stay hydrated while you're out on the beach. 

4. Go Shelling

Shelling is a hugely popular activity along the shores of Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, AL. You can casually stroll looking for shells while spending time at the beach or go out on a hunt for unique mollusks that turn up along the shore. Shelling is best done during low tide early in the morning and is especially good after a full moon or storm. 

5.  Experience the Local Cusine

The Alabama Coast is home to delicious seafood, of course, but there are plenty of options when it comes to dining out. Enjoy a delicious breakfast at one of the many diners and cafes to get the day started right, or end at one of the many great dinner spots like Cobalt the Restaurant, Big Fish Restaurant & Bar, or Fischer's. Mostly all Orange Beach restaurants serve local seafood, so be sure to try the fresh catch of the day while you're out.
