There’s no denying that Eden Condominiums provides a distinctive, romantic backdrop. Here, guests can find an escape, worlds away from the usual vacation crowds, to take in beautiful sunsets, coastal cuisine and fun activities. Take a look at our list of date night recommendations for couples staying on the gulf coast:
Dolphin Sunset Cruise
What’s more romantic than a sunset? A sunset dolphin cruise. Trips are between 1.5-2 hours long and the knowledgeable captains at Surf’s Up Dolphin Cruises run their boats so you can experience the excitement and joy of these amazing animals up close, while ensuring a safe and fun trip. Book your spots on an Evening Dolphin Cruise here.
Tandem Bike Ride
A brief drive to the west will bring you to Orange Beach. A scenic spot where you can rent tandem bikes from Beach Bike Rentals. Cruise along the many park trails in Gulf State Park. Whether you’re both cycling pros or if you’re trying a tandem bike for the first time, it’s an experience that will bring you closer together as you work in sync to get around your beautiful surroundings.
Spotting Wildlife at Big Lagoon State Park
A quick 15-minute drive will take you to Big Lagoon State Park. The park is a stopover for many bird species. Bring binoculars or borrow a pair from the ranger station and roam the shore and extensive coastal forest, or climb the three-story observation tower for a bird’s-eye view. For an extra romantic experience, stay at the park until sunset and watch the stars come out.
Dinner and a Show
Located just 35 minutes away from Eden, you’ll find Downtown OWA, a collection of shops, restaurants and entertainment. For a special date night, start at C’est Le Vin Wine Bar & Shop for a few drinks before heating things up at El Diablo Taqueria & Cantina. After dinner, tempt yourself at the Hershey’s Ice Cream Parlor before catching a Brandon Styles magic show at the Brandon Styles Theater. You can purchase tickets in advance here.
Picnic on the beach
It’s a classic for a reason. Whether you want to pick up dinner from a local restaurant or curate your own picnic snacks, there’s nothing quite like enjoying some food, while relaxing on the sand, listening to the ocean waves. We recommend getting your picnic ready about an hour before sunset, which, depending on the time of Summer you’re staying with us, can be between 7-8 p.m.
