THE BENEFITS OF A BEACH VACATION IN AUTUMN.
For many of us, that can only mean one thing… Winter is coming. And with cooler, shorter days ahead, the typical fall trek through the mountains no longer seems like the ideal way to travel in Autumn. Fortunately, the water is still warm on the Emerald Coast. And the fun is just beginning. Here are a few reasons.
Save Money–and Your Sanity
Beaches are notoriously crowded during the summer months. With school back in session and tourist season ending, autumn is a peaceful time to visit the beach. Not only do you get to skip the crowds and traffic, also likely access more affordable accommodations and travel.
After Labor Day, Emerald Coast visitors can browse a number of special offers, including a number of seasonal-specific discounts on local dining and local attractions. A stress-free beach vacation for a fraction of the price? Say no more.
Warm Weather in October
The best part about going to the beach is… Well, the beach. If it’s not warm enough to enjoy the sun and sand, it’s not really much of a ‘beach vacation.’ If you’re looking for the best weather for a beach fall vacation, Emerald Coast may be the answer to your prayers. These sandy white beaches have the added perk of remaining vacation-worthy well past the months of August and September. If you want a tan, just try to plan your autumn beach vacation before November rolls around.
Weather in the Emerald Coast
September: 78 degrees. Highs of 85 and lows of 73.
October: 71 degrees. Highs of 77 and lows of 64.
November: 62.5 degrees. Highs of 69 and lows of 55. 69-55
Fall Festivals on the Shore
When the tourists pack up and head home at the end of August, things are just heating up for Emerald Coast.
Destin Fishing Rodeo
The Destin Fishing Rodeo is an annual event on the Destin Harbor that lasts throughout the entire month of October. Destin is known as “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village,” so it’s no surprise that The Destin Fishing Rodeo is one of Destin’s biggest events. The Destin Fishing Rodeo is fun for all ages and over $100,000 of cash prizes are awarded for nearly every type of fish. Located right in HarborWalk Village, this event is perfect for the whole family if you’re planning a trip to Destin this fall.
Destin Seafood Festival
If you love seafood, the Destin Seafood Festival is a can’t-miss event! Also located in HarborWalk Village, this festival is a free event that features tons of delicious seafood from local restaurants and vendors. Try incredible food and drinks while enjoying the wonderful family-friendly atmosphere of the Destin Harbor. The event takes place on Friday, October 4th, from 4 pm to 10 pm, Saturday, October 5th, from 10 am to 10 pm, and Sunday, October 6th, from 11 am to 4 pm.
Baytowne Wharf Beer Festival
The Baytowne Wharf Beer Festival is known as the “Best Beer Fest on the Emerald Coast.” If you love trying craft beers, Baytowne Wharf Beer Fest is an event you don’t want to miss. This fun two-day event features more than 40 on-site craft brewers, almost 200 domestic and international craft beers, seminars, samplings, and live music.

The festival continues with the main event at 6:30 pm on Saturday, October 25th, on Kelly Green in Alys Beach. Firkin Fête features live music, food, and unique beers paired with wine, bourbon, and craft cocktails.
Seeing Red Wine Festival
It’s time for wine enthusiasts to mark their calendars for the Seeing Red Wine Festival in Seaside! This fun fall event lasts three days and is full of fun wine tasting events. The weekend kicks off with the Bud & Alley’s Vintner Dinner on November 7th. On November 8th, head over to Ruskin Place for the Al Fresco Wine Tasting. The Al Fresco Wine Tasting showcases a carefully curated selection of reserve wines. The Grand Tasting in Downtown Seaside and Ruskin Place takes place on November 9th and features a wide selection of local food and wine.
