Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

Homeschooling

Children learn the most amazing things when they’re having fun.

Family fun at the air museumLike how fast a sand crab moves or that the tide coming in will overrun a perfectly built sand castle. Alabama’s Gulf Coast isn’t all about fun in the sun and traditional beach activities when you schedule a field trip here, although we do have those, too. Both Gulf Shores and Orange Beach feature many attractions that afford educational experiences covering a wide range of topics, including the environment, animal habitats, oceanography and marine life, avionics, biology and history. Let your kids have the best of both worlds – interactive and educational experiences that fit your curriculum and make it fun to learn, and when school’s out, head straight to the beach for some family fun!

Whether you plan to come take your field trip with us for a day, a week, or a month, we are sure our affordable accommodations will provide the environment you are looking for. Our accommodations include a wide variety of options, and our family friendly casual vibe makes Gulf Shores and Orange Beach the natural choice for homeschooling parents looking for a wide range of learning in one destination. We know children learn the most when they’re having fun, and our 32 miles of un-crowded, sugar white beaches and turquoise water provide a fun and exciting way for them to learn.

And for your family to experience a whole different state of togetherness.
