Alabama 2023, Part IV, Mardi Gras

In 2023 we were finally in the right place at the right time to enjoy Mardi Gras activities. After a brief consideration of the nearby options we decided to stay local and enjoy not just one but two parades!

We started within literally walking distance and walked about a mile to see the parade in Gulf Shores, Alabama, which was in the morning. That was new, different, and fun and we doubled up in Orange Beach, Alabama, in the afternoon.

Despite the relative proximity (8 miles) we drove, which posed a challenge. While we expected that, we underestimated how little parking there would be available and arrived rather late. Definitely a lesson learned and a confirmation that our choice #1 was a perfect one. No driving definitely makes it easier and more enjoyable.

And that is it for today's quick visit to the Mardi Gras in Gulf Shores, Alabama in February 2023.
