As our spring vacation gets closer, I find myself checking the Gulf Shores weather forecast almost daily. Know what I’m often finding? Temperatures in the 70s. A good it of sunshine. Spring really seems to be coming to life in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach.
I have high hopes that by the time we get down there in a few weeks, we’ll have no problem engaging in some outdoor swimming. And we’ll certainly have our pick at Gulf Shores Plantation—six outdoor swimming pools are part of the resort amenities. I love to bounce around and relax by each of the pools throughout the vacation, but my favorites are the ones that offer a view of the Gulf. Soaking in a resort swimming pool and gazing out at white-sand beaches and the Gulf beyond is the epitome of relaxation, in my mind.
And the Gulf—another swimming option if the weather is warm enough! I admit, I still enjoy dodging the waves; age hasn’t claimed that small joy yet. Although I do seem to spend less time in the water and more time on the beach (with a good book, of course) than I used to.
But even if the temperatures dip down a bit, or if we have rain, swimming won’t be out of the option, thanks to the resort’s indoor swimming pool. And that’s why we love Gulf Shores Plantation. Can’t wait to get down there!
