The Hangout Polar Bear Plunge

Hundreds of people lined the beach in front of the Hangout in Gulf Shores to raise money for local charities and to celebrate the New Year for 2023! It had been a cold and rainy week, but we woke up to blue skies and 70 degree weather. It was perfect for a polar bear plunge. Can you spot us in the picture? We are in the red and blue swimsuits near the middle. We were welcomed out with gumbo and hot cocoa. This is our new tradition! Join us next year!

The Hangout is always a popular destination with kids activities, live music, active servers and dining entertainment. Check them out at
