We recently had the opportunity to head down to our favorite Amusement Park, The Park at Owa and check out all of the new things they have happening! Since our last visit they have added lots of activities, and of course, seasonal events throughout the year. While we were there their Fall and Halloween events were in full swing, pumpkin patch, haunted house, trick or treating in the park and more!
A really fun new addition is the Legends in Concert show we were able to catch. Now, I was traveling with some teens and pre-teens who were a bit skeptical about the show at first, not really knowing who some of the performers were or what to expect, but Taylor Swift was on the ticket for our show and that was enough to make them curious. The theatre is intimate and every seat in the house is great. The performers do a good job getting the audience involved, even though my kids didn’t know who all of the performers were, they recognized a lot of the songs and were dancing in their seats. Legends in concert is the longest running show in Las Vegas history and now you can catch it in Downtown Owa when you visit! The Tribute Artists change periodically, but expect to see Taylor Swift, Dolly Parton, Lada Gaga, Tony Bennett, George Michael, Reba McIntyre, Elvis and more at any given time! You can check their calendar for current performers.
While we were there we were also able to check out the Brandon Styles Variety Show, and it was hilarious! It’s a mix of magic, comedy and impressions, from Justin Beiber to Bob Marley and about 60 more in between, this family friendly show will leave you laughing the entire time.
One of the things we love most about The Park at Owa is that once you check into your hotel room, you can leave your car and walk to all of the activities, restaurants, shows and the park. Everything you need for your trip is right out the back door of the hotel. We enjoyed meals at the Groovy Goat (get the table side nachos) If you like burgers and the Wahlbergs (yes, as in NKOTB Wahlbergs) You have to check out Wahlburgers. Paula Deen will be opening her restaurant mid December and we look forward to that on our next visit!
The Park at Owa will be offering lots of Holiday Activities now through the end of the year. If you’re looking for a quick family getaway or something new and fun, hit the road and check out this great South Alabama Destination!
