On October 3-6, the 15th Annual John L. Borom Alabama Coastal BirdFest will be taking place in Fairhope, Alabama. Fairhope is located only a short distance up the road from SeaChase at Orange Beach, and this event is sure to be a blast.

Always the first full weekend of October, birders know the Alabama Gulf Coast is a prime spot to see birds during the fall migration, and since 2004, BirdFest has attracted visitors from more than 27 states and Canada—many returning multiple times. For both experienced birders and those new to birding, BirdFest offers more than 30 expertly guided tours, evening dinner events, workshops, and the free, family friendly Bird & Conservation Expo. Now a “birding and nature festival,” BirdFest features trips that highlight local and migrating birds, wildflowers, alligators, dolphins, and other creatures that share our world.

SeaChase at Orange Beach is less than an hour south of Fairhope, so it provides a place to stay where one can enjoy BirdFest and the charm of Fairhope while also enjoying the wonder of autumn on the Alabama Gulf Coast. It is the best of both worlds! Columbus Day Weekend takes place during bird migration and is a great time to spend in nature and in a state of relaxation. Get away for a fall break where there are endless amounts of great restaurants, shopping, golf, excursions, luxurious condos, pools, and other amenities, SeaChase is the perfect location for a fall vacation at Orange Beach!
