Win a Fall Beach Vacation with the Alabama Gulf Seafood Getaway Giveaway

Summer might be done for this year, but the ocean is still calling. And for this year’s Alabama Gulf Seafood Getaway Giveaway, we’re giving away a prize package worth skipping a home game. Besides, it’s still warm on the beaches in November. (The average temperature for the month is 69 degrees.)

As part of the giveaway, one of our fans will win a four-person package for three November nights on Alabama’s beaches, with deep-sea fishing along the Gulf Coast and more oysters than you can count.

Get Away Give Away

From Nov. 7 through Nov. 10, the winner will receive a three-night stay in a two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo at the The Palms Condominiums in Orange Beach courtesy of Kaiser Realty by Wyndam Vacation Rentals. You might want to spend that first day relaxing, because the rest of the weekend is going to fill your eyes, your ears and your stomach.

That Friday, you’ll spend a half-day deep-sea fishing with High Cotton Charters.  Then on Nov. 9, you’ll head over to The Hangout in Gulf Shores for a full day of Alabama Gulf oysters at 6th Annual Oyster Cook-Off, featuring more than 40 top chefs from the region. Last year, finalists from The Next Food Network Star including Alabama’s own Martie Duncan, James-beard Semifinalists James Boyce, Rob McDaniel and Wesley True, and State of Alabama Execute Chef Jim Smith all served up the best of the Gulf Coast.
