Fall is often a great time for the women of the house to escape for the weekend. I don’t know about you but Saturday mornings hit and the TV goes to ESPN and the only channels it gets flipped to are other channels showing football!

I love that I live in a state that has such gorgeous beaches, so when I’m ready to escape football or just escape life in general, I can hop in the car and be at white sand beaches and crystal blue waters in a matter of hours.

Here’s some reasons why you should go to the Alabama coast for your next girls getaway weekend…

The Beach

There’s 32 miles of beautiful pristine sand that is just waiting for you to stick your toes in while listening to the calming sounds of the rolling waves. Venture out with your beach chair, sunscreen, and cold drink and let the sun kiss your skin as you forget about all the cares in the world.

When you get the itch to get out in the water, there’s a wide range of rentals available like paddle boarding, parasailing, jet skiing, kayaking, as well as boat rentals, dolphin, bird-watching, and sunset cruises.
