4 Fun Ways to Spend Easter in Gulf ShoresJillian Pierce - March 01, 2019
The advent of spring brings warmer, longer and sunnier days to our already pristine beaches. And that makes Easter a perfect time of year to book a family vacation in Gulf Shores. Kick off the season with rest, relaxation and reconnecting. Break away from busy days and bring your Easter basket to The Beach Club Resort & Spa. We’ve got a basketful of fun waiting for you.
What to Do in Gulf Shores on Easter Weekend
The first thing to love about Easter in Gulf Shores? Savoring a scrumptious Easter Brunch Buffet served at Coast Restaurant & Sushi Bar. Sit down and relax with your family. The brunch buffet will be served from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Take in the spectacular panoramic waterfront view of the Gulf of Mexico from inside or on the veranda. The cost is $39.95 per adult; $9.95 for kids and free for 5 and under. Reservations are required and you don’t want to miss out. Stay out of the kitchen on Easter and take full advantage of the extra time to reconnect with your family. Call 251-224-3600 for reservations.
Spend your weekend with a basketful of activities courtesy of the activities team at The Beach Club, starting on Friday, April 19 and continuing through Easter Sunday. Friday activities include kids and adult tennis clinics, candy bingo, frozen treats and poolside crafts.
On Saturday, April 20, celebrate Easter at our EGGstravaganza from noon to 2 p.m. It’s complimentary for guests of Spectrum Resorts at The Beach Club, and $10 for non-Spectrum guests. Kids can enjoy face painting, balloon animals, train rides, photos with the Easter bunny, a bounce house and special appearances by Belle, Cinderella and Ariel. The grown-ups get in on the fun at 4 p.m. with our Adult Egg Dash. Collect eggs in a specific color to win a prize.
Easter Sunday begins with a beachside Easter worship service at 9 a.m., followed by family photos on the beach at 9:30 a.m. Easter Beach Egg Dashes for kids will be held at the end of the Avalon Boardwalk, starting with the Turtle Tot Dash for ages 4 and under at 10:30 a.m. Kids 5-7 can complete at 11 a.m. and kids 8-11 can dash to see how many eggs they can collect starting at 11:30 a.m. From 2 to 6 p.m. enjoy live music by Gypsy Pearl at the Clubhouse pool area.
Eggstra-Special Spa Day.
While the kids enjoy the egg hunts, mom can prop up her feet and get her toes ready for sandal weather with specials at The Spa & Salon at The Beach Club. Get 15% off your manicure when you schedule a pedicure. Or, let our staff pamper you with an 80-minute massage and get a complimentary scalp massage.
Easter Fun on the Water.
We’re not going to leave out dad. Our fourth fun way to spend an Easter vacation in Gulf Shores is to get out on the water with a rod and reel. Book a bow fishing excursion at one of the nearby charters. Call the front desk at 251-224-3300 to arrange a trip.
Of course, there’s plenty more to do during a Gulf Shores Easter vacation. We’re just hitting the tip of Peter’s Cottontail.
