Screen time? Try shore time!
If your child’s school is going virtual this year or you’re homeschooling, the world is your (delicious Gulf Coast) oyster. Instead of logging long hours at home, ditch the desk and move the classroom to one of nature’s most dynamic landscapes – the beach!
When you roadschool to our pristine beaches, your entire learning experience gets an upgrade. Dull textbooks are exchanged for exciting hands-on learning. Recess moves from endless track loops to endless miles of family fun. The lunchroom gets an upgrade, trading bland Cheeseburger Mac for a taste bud-tempting seafood. And, the only lines you’ll be forming are the ones attached to your saltwater fishing pole.
When school is in session, your spacious Turquoise Place condo offers the perfect amount of quiet privacy for focus and concentration. Between virtual lessons, take a field trip from Dauphin Island to Orange Beach to explore the area’s historic forts and get a lesson in marine biology. Why not hold art class on our white-sand beaches? Sandcastle, anyone?
No matter where your feet (or seat) are planted, you’ll experience the full spectrum of virtual learning when school days become shore days on the Alabama Gulf Coast!
Treat your family to a roadschool vacation with the lowest rates of the season. A $99 deposit secures your stay when booked more than 45 days in advance!
