Summer Rainy Days on the Gulf Coast

Eva Faircloth - July 27, 2016

In the summer, you always have rainy days and we need them to cool off from the Alabama heat. On those rainy days, typically you are cooped up inside. While you are inside and not on the beach or poolside there is always something to do.

Tanger Outlets Shopping while on vacation is inevitable, but the best days to go are those when you are not missing the sun and the days are cooling off. Take a walk around the outdoor covered Tanger Outlets and find brands like Kate Spade, Michael Khors, Vera Bradley and more.

The Track. While it is known for its outdoor activities like go karts, water bumper cars, mini golf and sky coaster, there is also an inside arcade with hours of fun. Play and win tickets to pick out a prize. Don’t have enough tickets? Save them for the next time you come, they don’t expire. Save enough and you could trade in your tickets for a designer purse, autographed football or other prizes worth more than tickets.

The Wharf. There is so much to do at The Wharf raining or not, but there is a lot to do on rainy days. Stroll around and shop, make a cherished stuffed animal at Build-A-Bear or grab a bite to eat and watch the boats pull into the marina. Even catch a movie at Carmike and listen to the rain while watching a summer blockbuster. If you want to run; play laser tag or bazooka ball at the Arena and school the kids in the art of battle, or show them up on arcade games that you grew up on.

Whether it’s sunny days or rainy days, there’s always something to do on the Alabama Gulf Coast while you are #creatinghappymemories.
