Catch A Blue Angels Practice
Not far down the road from Gulf Shores, you can find the National Naval Aviation Museum. During select times of the year, the museum offers public viewing of the Blue Angel’s practice. The Blue Angels are the United States Navy’s flight demonstration squadron which puts on a spectacular performance. Impressive air stunts and formations will leave you in awe as the signature blue planes whiz by. A little birdie told me that another great spot to watch the Blue Angels practice is from the seawalls of Fort Pickens. Add that to the bucketlist. Fall is a great time to come to watch them practice as the season ends in November and picks back up in April.
