I love doing things with my family – but honestly we suck at planning vacations! Having been a military family who traveled around the US – we often spent much of our vacations exploring our new surroundings. We never lived near family, so traveling to see relatives always took a chunk of our vacation budget. We are now almost four years in our forever home in the Greater New Orleans area and we need to spread our wings a little further. We decided to stay close to home over Thanksgiving as my husband has been traveling a lot. We love Destin and have been there several times, we have been to Pensacola, and the Grand Marriott Resort in Alabama. I Googled and found The Beach Club Gulf in Gulf Shores, Alabama, based on some of the basic amenities we wanted.
I immediately asked Shanon about The Beach Club. I have had the privilege of meeting Shannon (she is a hoot), follow her on Twitter and she has graciously allowed me to bug her many times for suggestions in the past. She has never steered me wrong! Shannon put me in touch with her point of contact at Spectrum Resorts (she stayed at Turquoise Place before & loved it), and it was first class planning all the way. They are even hosting my family. We have a 3 bedroom condo waiting as well as a reserved Thanksgiving buffet. Hubby and #1 son are packing golf clubs, the younger 2 are packing beach toys and I’m packing my running shoes to hit the beach! We are soooo excited to check out the Beach Club and all it has to offer. I will keep you posted!
