Spring break 2019: Alabama, Panhandle keeping it clean | al.com

February 19, 2019
Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have long sought to distinguish themselves as family-friendly spring break destinations, meaning they're not particularly receptive to mass partying by college-age visitors on the beaches or of disturbances of the peace in general. Both communities re-emphasized that stance after 2015, when disturbing incidents in another destination to the east, Panama City Beach, made national news.

Spring Break leaves behind piles of trash on Gulf Coast beaches | WPMI

April 05, 2018
ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (WPMI) — The past two weeks of Spring Break have left piles of trash along local beaches, this despite the push to "Leave Only Your Footprints." It's a campaign in Gulf Shores and in Orange Beach that's curbed the amount of trash - 30% less this season so far compared to last year's Spring Break, still the disregard for cleaning up after yourself is a problem.
