Alabama may not spring to mind when you think "sandy respite," but the state’s southern border features 32 miles of coastline hugging the Gulf of Mexico, where white sand beaches meet clear coastal waters in towns like Orange Beach. Beyond the sun and sand, the area boasts nature preserves, golf courses and fishing expeditions.
Time Out tip: Wearing a mask is mandatory, and all visitors must remain six feet apart from those who don't live in their household.
