6 of the Best Things About Taking a Fall Vacation at Our Luxury Hotel in Destin Florida
While there are numerous benefits to visiting the Emerald Coast year round, a fall vacation in Destin can be especially pleasant. The following are six reasons to consider staying at our luxury hotel in Destin Florida this autumn:
1. Enjoy Less Crowded Beaches
Like many popular tourist spots, Destin is most crowded in summer. While there are certainly advantages to enjoying summer on the Emerald Coast, you will also have to endure more traffic and crowded beaches. When you visit in the fall, you can have a more relaxing vacation, with extra space and privacy. Temperatures during the day are still high enough to enjoy the beach and water. These conditions are ideal for couples on a romantic getaway at our luxury hotel in Destin Florida.
Seasoned travelers often time their vacations so that they can save money by visiting popular destinations off-season. Peak season in Destin is summer. During fall, you can enjoy all of the perks and amenities of the Henderson Park Inn at lower rates. If you can take your vacation time in autumn, you can save big on your trip to Destin.
3. Comfortable Temperatures
Fall is one of the times of year when Destin has the most comfortable temperatures. From September to November, temperatures typically range from the 60s to the 80s, with the average high in the mid 70s. This is some of Florida’s most pleasant weather; not too hot, yet still warm enough to enjoy relaxing on the beach and going into the water. You can also enjoy cooler evenings, which are refreshing after a day spent in the sun.
4. Attend the Destin Seafood Festival
There are fun and interesting things to do throughout the year in Destin, but if you visit during the fall, you can attend some of the year’s best events. For example, the Destin Seafood Festival takes place from October 2-4, 2015. This popular event offers free entertainment for three days along the gorgeous Destin Harbor Boardwalk. There will be lots of live music and numerous food vendors offering some of the area’s freshest and most delicious seafood.
