5 Reasons to Take a Destin Vacation in the Fall
Summer might be over, but your beach vacations don’t have to be! Fall is actually one of the best times to visit Destin. Our hotel provides a relaxing place to stay year round, and you’ll love having fewer crowds out and about in town! To help you decide why you should start planning your trip to the area, we’ve made a list of 5 reasons you should take a Destin vacation in the fall.
1. Fewer Crowds
One of the things that visitors love most about the fall season in Destin is that there are fewer crowds. Destin is a popular vacation destination all throughout the year, but it tends to slow down a little once summer comes to an end. This means you can enjoy fewer lines at your favorite shops and shorter wait times at popular restaurants. With our private beach access and comfortable suites, our hotel always makes it easy to relax and unwind, and now you can enjoy some peace and quiet around town too!
2. Fall Festivals
Another great reason to take a Destin vacation in the fall is so you can experience the incredible fall festivals! The popular Destin Seafood Festival takes place in October and includes entertainment, shopping, and tons of delicious food. There’s also the Baytowne Beer Festival, which is known as the “Best Beer Fest on the Emerald Coast.” The event includes more than 40 on-site craft brewers, samplings, live music, and more. Other popular fall festivals in Destin are the Destin Fishing Rodeo, the Harvest Wine & Food Festival, and the Blues, Brews & BBQ Festival.
3. Great Fishing Opportunities
If you love to fish, you’ll love visiting Destin in the fall. The fall months are great for catching triggerfish, mackerel, grouper, numerous amberjack species, and snapper species. If you want to experience one of the biggest fishing tournaments, be sure to plan your trip during the Destin Fishing Rodeo. There is something for everyone at this month-long tournament, whether you want to participate or just sit back and watch. See some of the record-breaking saltwater fish that is caught or join in on the fun yourself! In addition to the Destin Fishing Rodeo, fall visitors can still book fishing charters and enjoy your own adventure on the Emerald Coast!
4. Beautiful Weather
Fall brings about some of the most beautiful weather in Destin. Average temperatures tend to stay just below 80 degrees, while water temperatures stick to the upper 70s. The water’s warm enough to swim in, so you’ll love spending time on the beach! It’s the perfect weather to enjoy other outdoor activities as well, like golfing, dolphin tours, or even parasailing. As our guest, you’ll have access to bicycles and helmets so you can take a scenic bike ride, or you can take advantage of our complimentary boxed lunches and have a picnic outside!
5. Gorgeous Sunsets
Sunsets are an amazing sight all year long, but they’re even more special in Destin during the fall. Fall is the only time of year where the sun sets directly over the Gulf of Mexico, painting a gorgeous picture you have to see at least once in your life. For some of the best views, go for a sunset cruise! On the cruise, you’ll have a front row seat to the sky lighting up in oranges, pinks, and yellows and it reflects on the emerald waters of the Gulf. Sunrises are beautiful during this time of year as well, and they happen a little later in the morning so you don’t have to get up as early to take in the beautiful scenery.
