Booking Beach Accommodations for the Fourth

Booking Beach Accommodations for the Fourth

Posted: Updated:

The beaches aren't packed yet, but wait.

"Some are coming in this weekend, some are coming in on Wednesday."

Marie Curran says most of those folks already have reservations. "We don't have very much space open at this point probably in the 90 percentile."

Condo's and hotel rooms are booking fast. Beach houses are close behind. Other options like RV parks may not be an option at all according to Luxury RV Resort manager Pat Shackelford. "Very big weekend. We are booked. We have been booked for about seven or eight months."

Still looking for a place? Maybe the best place to look is on-line. Gulfshores.com and Orangebeach.com has a calendar that lists the availability of condos, hotels, and some beach houses that's constantly updated. "We're happy that the calendar is listing maybe eight or ten people that have availability with yes, others are listing limited," says vice president of marketing Joanie Flynn.

The one thing you don't want to do according to Curran, "If you just drive in without a reservation you could be stuck at a location you really don't want to be in."

The fourth of July holiday is one of the biggest on the beaches. So put on your "things to do" list if you're making plans to come down here, make reservations now.
