Vacationing in Fort Morgan and Gulf Shores is fun any time of year, but the area especially comes alive during the holiday season.

You’ll experience tons of fun holiday events to make lasting memories with your family. Read on for everything you need to know about planning your winter vacation to Fort Morgan.

Fort Morgan Holiday Events

Fort Morgan and the surrounding area has tons of fun holiday traditions that the whole family can get in on! The Wharf in Orange Beach is great throughout the season, with fun events like the Holiday Open House in November or the Merry Market Unique Gifts and Arts & Crafts Expo in December. You can even meet Santa at the Wharf on the weekends! In Orange Beach, you’ll want to be sure to witness the city of Orange Beach Christmas Tree Lighting at the end of November.

Gulf Shores Holiday Events

Just down the road in Gulf Shores, you’ll find even more holiday fun to indulge in. Bring the family out to the Gulf Shores Lighted Christmas Parade & Beach celebration, where you can watch the floats go by and get some treats! Lulu’s Presents Billy Claus and the LuLuBelles is a fun way to enjoy a casual meal with your family while letting the kids tell Santa their wishes and take part in fun arts and crafts. You’ll also have a chance to eat breakfast with Santa at the Erie Meyer Civic Center!

What is the Weather Like in the Winter?

Even if you’re vacationing in winter, temperatures stay bearable in and around Fort Morgan. The months of December, January, and February usually see highs right around 60 degrees and low temperatures around 50 degrees. While it may be a bit brisk to go for a swim, you can still enjoy a stroll on the beach and partake in all the other outdoor activities in the area.

What to Pack

You might be wondering what special gear you need to pack for a beach vacation in the winter.  Most guests are comfortable in long pants and short sleeve T-shirts, but you will want to bring a light jacket along as well for the cooler evenings. You can probably do without an umbrella, as the winter is in the dry season for the Gulf Shores area. It’s definitely safe to leave the big jackets and snow boots behind!

Fort Morgan Vacation Rentals

Now that you know everything you can see and do in the winter, you’re going to need a Fort Morgan beach house rental to come home to at night. Luckily, all of our Fort Morgan rental houses are just minutes away from the events we mentioned, as well as lots more fun! We have rental options for every budget and every need, and no request is out of reach. You will be in the lap of luxury with amenities like full kitchens, pool access, gorgeous views from the balcony, and so much more.
