The Emerald Coast is a popular beach destination any time of the year, but it particularly comes alive during the fall season. This area features a variety of activities and events to suit every age and preference, from seafood aficionados to beach volleyball players. Vein Center of Florida & South Baldwin has a host of possibilities for you to celebrate fall on the warm, sunny Florida coast.
Hit the Beach
Even in the fall, conditions are generally lovely for a long beach day. Water temperatures in the Gulf tend to waiver between 70 and 80 degrees, while the air temperature is still quite warm for outdoor activities. One of the best benefits of spending a day on the beach this time of year is that you won’t have to deal with as many crowds as you would in the summer. With kids back in school and most vacationers back to work, fall beaches can be the true tropical paradise you have dreamed about.
Attend a Festival
Destin is the place for fall festivals of all kind. From the popular Destin Seafood Festival to the Pensacola Interstate Fair just down the road, you will find plenty of reasons to celebrate in southern style. The seafood festival is a particularly well-attended event, with a track record of excellent food and music to enjoy. This event, which kicks off the last day of September this year, is located on the historic Destin Harbor and is free to guests. There is live music and activities for the kids, in addition to a tantalizing array of seafood options.
Listen to Music
There is plenty of good music that comes to Destin throughout the year and fall is no exception. This fall, in addition to the many local artists playing at the fairs and festivals around town, you can catch national acts at venues like the Saenger Theatre and Club LA. In addition to bands and musicians, you can see ballet, stand-up comics and even a few acts that don’t fit in the standard categories. Check early for tickets, as many of these shows sell out quick.
The annual Destin Fishing Rodeo takes place throughout the month of October, giving avid anglers a chance to strut their stuff and compete for big prizes. Even if you don’t like fishing, you can come as a guest and enjoy the daily weigh-ins or sample a few of the offerings the Gulf Coast has to offer. The event is free to join and even kids can get in on the action and win some nice gifts.
Play Some Volleyball
Fall is the season for the annual Emerald Coast Fall Classic, which features one of the most exciting beach volleyball tournaments in the area. This classic offers five full days of volleyball for playing or watching, parties for the players and even a costume contest to get you in the Halloween spirit. There are some nice prizes to be won and plenty of food and festivities for everyone that attends.
