Orange Beach is nestled against the Florida/Alabama state line and is a wonderful vacation community along Coastal Alabama. Filled with attractions and opportunities for family fun, Orange Beach is an excellent choice for your next vacation to the Gulf Coast.
Named for the Satsuma oranges once cultivated in the area, Orange Beach was settled in the late 1800’s by both farmers and fisherman. While the town was once sparsely populated, it has slowly grown into a thriving community enjoyed by both visitors and many area residents. There is a distinct feel to Orange Beach that is unlike any other Gulf Coast beach community thanks to the combination of beach and country fed by the Gulf of Mexico, three freshwater lakes and 11 miles of Backcounty Trail, all available for your exploration and enjoyment. We just know you’ll feel relaxed and at home when you arrive for your vacation to Coastal Alabama.
