Rain always puts a damper on a fun day at the beach. When you envision a relaxing day of waves, sand and pure relaxation, you don’t expect it to rain. No one expects rainfall on their coastal getaways but weather is often unpredictable.

When rain dampens your beach vacation, make the best of your time and have a plan in place for the perfect rainy day on the Alabama Gulf Coast. We have composed a list of 5 fun things to do on the Alabama coast on a rainy day.
