Thanksgiving on the Gulf

Between November and December, families will travel thousands of miles to share the holidays with loved ones. A great place to do that is at a destination spot, which will allow families to celebrate the holiday in neutral territory and remove the pressure of one family member hosting everything. Create fun, family memories by celebrating along the waterfront in Gulf Shores.

While you’re at it, why not leave the grocery shopping and cooking to the experts. The Beach Club on Fort Morgan Road offers a Thanksgiving special that includes accommodations and a gourmet Thanksgiving buffet prepared by Chef Brody Olive at the Coast restaurant.

The menu will include Thanksgiving staples such as turkey and green bean casserole. But steps it up a notch with additional offerings such as lobster bisque, herb-rubbed prime rib, blackened Mahi Mahi, lump crab and sweet pepper and Gulf seafood lasagna. Did I mention the cranberry apple bread pudding with caramel sauce? Be sure not to miss that. These are just a few of the savory highlights. Click here to see the full menu.

The buffet is $32.95 per person for adults, $10.95 for children ages 6-12 and FREE for children 5 and under.

Tempted yet? Book a rental at The Beach Club to stay Thanksgiving weekend (Wednesday, Nov. 26 – Sunday, Nov. 30) and you will receive dinner vouchers based on the size room you book. The property offers 1 to 5 bedroom condominiums and village cottages. Click here  for more details on the special.

After dinner, everyone can walk on the beach and coast around the property before retiring to the condo for family game time. But the fun doesn’t have to stop there. On Friday, enjoy a morning sunrise or sunset, take the little ones out for a poolside craft and games or enjoy an evening campfire and S’mores. On Saturday, catch super deals at the Tanger Outlets in Foley, Ala., enjoy more games on the property or watch the Iron Bowl. There’s even an 8 a.m. worship service. Sounds like a perfect Thanksgiving to me.
