Good afternoon everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely Friday! Today I am dropping in to share more details about my latest trip to South Alabama. Earlier in the week I shared with you guys the amazing event I attended at Wahlburgers located in Downtown OWA in Foley, Alabama. Well today I am going to tell you a little more about Downtown OWA.
Downtown OWA is part of the OWA complex which also houses an awesome amusement park and the TownePlace Suites from Marriott. Downtown OWA is an outdoor shopping, dining, and entrainment district that is perfect for a night out or a little getaway. You can park at the TownePlace Suites and then walk everywhere from there. All of Downtown OWA is free, the Park offers daily admission tickets.
Downtown OWA currently has some amazing places to eat like Wahlburgers, Trattoria Pizza & Italian, Hershey’s Ice Cream Parlor, and Auntie Anne’s & Cinnabon, and have Sushi C. by Mikato, Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar, and Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen all opening soon.
Along with some great dining locations, there is plenty of great shops to hit up too. Some that I saw that I have to hit up
Currently, Legends in Concert is stationed at the Theater and this is a show packed with great tribute artists. Legends in Concert originally was a Las Vegas show but now has since branched out and found a home at Downtown OWA. The artists make up a great mix of music so there will certainly be something for everyone. Elvis was my favorite, he nailed it perfectly!
Heads up! There is an intermission during the show which is the perfect time for bathroom breaks or to restock at the concession stand and not miss any of the great show. I had a blast and sang along to many of my favorite tunes.
Now after spending all day at Downtown OWA or the Park, you really don’t want to have to drive to
The hotel does offer a full continental breakfast too if you want to take it easy in the mornings. There is also a small convenience store located at the front desk for stocking up on snacks, drinks, or those little items you forgot to pack. Also at TownePlace Suites by Marrio
About 5 mins north of OWA you will also find the Tanger Outlets. Great opportunity to get some shopping in and saving some money! I hit up the Coach Outlet while here looking for one piece in particular so it was great not having to go out of my way.
One more great advantages to the OWA area, you are just 20 minutes from the beach! Yes, Alabama has a small beach area! Gulf Shores beaches are just a little further south from OWA and are some of the cleanest beaches you will find in the Gulf region. You will also find all your seafood fix here too!
As you can clearly see, OWA is a great vacation getaway! You really have everything in a short walk or short drive. Beach vacation can get a bit expensive and finding a nice place to stay off the beach is sometimes hard. Thanks to OWA, you can have a great place to stay, shop, and dine without the overpriced beach expenses we have come to know. Win win!!! I hope to make a trip back down during cooler weather and check out the Park along with some of the new restaurants opening up, you know I love me some food!
Now that you have made it this far, it’s time to share with you my manicure inspired from my night at Downtown OWA. OWA means big water in the Muscogee language so I had to go blue for this look. Inspired by the music, the stars at night, and the blue lake we have my Downtown OWA mani.
For this look, I started off with three coats of What I Like About Blue by China Glaze. Next, I used Mallory by Zoya with the 300
So what do you guys think of Downtown OWA and my music/water
I attended Downtown OWA, Legends in Concert, and TownePlace Suites as a guest but that does not influence my opinions.
