On behalf of our City Council and as Mayor of the City of Orange Beach, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our city where we like to say, “Life is Better Here.”

While you are here, you will come to understand what we mean by this as you soak in the spectacular beauty of our sunrises, sunsets and enjoy walking along our sandy white beaches. We encourage each of you to relax and experience all that the City of Orange Beach and the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast have to offer.

Residents and visitors to Orange Beach are blessed with the opportunity to take in breathtaking natural beauty including the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail, which is integrated throughout Pleasure Island as a nationally recognized trail system. With our public canoe and kayak trails, fishing pier and public beach accesses, there is always a place to get away on your getaway.

Orange Beach is home to a vibrant sports community. We are known as the “Youth Sports Capital of the South,” hosting championship sporting events, leagues and teams of all levels of competition at the Orange Beach Sportsplex. Our Recreation Complex has premiere fitness, aquatic and tennis facilities for both residents and visitors. Bring your clubs and try our Par 3 executive-style golf course.

Arts and entertainment are vital in our community. Many visit our city to see some of the biggest names in entertainment take the stage at The Wharf Amphitheater, while others visit the Coastal Arts Center featuring the "Hot Shop" and “Clay Studio” where you can blow hot glass and make your own pottery, taking home a handmade souvenir.

Orange Beach offers some other unique facilities of interest including a waterfront public library, Indian and Sea Museum, Kids Park, and the “Unleashed” Dog Park, most of which offer free Wi-Fi hotspots for your convenience and connectivity.

Once again, welcome to the City of Orange Beach - we hope your stay is pleasurable and filled with experiences you will never forget. While you are here, drop in and say hello. We always look forward to seeing you.

Your Experience Is Our Pleasure,

Tony Kennon, Mayor
