You can go swimming.

By the Ocean:

The Gulf Coast is a great place to visit! Come and go camping or you can go for a swim. You might want to go fishing too.

Wetlands along the coast have more different kinds of plants and animals than other kinds of wetlands. Millions of migrating birds such as geese, ducks, and songbirds find a winter home on these coastal wetlands. The state shell, the lightning whelk, is found on the shorelines. Other wildlife found in this region includes alligators, fiddler crabs, spoonbills, and sea turtles.
