While most people think of vacations to Florida as a summer event, it doesn’t have to be limited to the summer. Summer can be a convenient time of year, to be sure: kids are out of school and the beach is sunny and perfect wading into the water. However, many visitors actually prefer to visit Destin in the cooler months, finding a respite from the colder weather of their home city. Destin has much to offer in the fall, from the weather to a number of festivals that will keep you entertained. Here are a few of our favorite reasons to visit Destin in the fall:

Sunny Weather All Year Long

Sure, summer in Destin is great. But fall isn’t the chilly, rainy season that you might expect in the Northeast or Midwest. In November, the high temperatures still in the 70s and there are only 5 rainy days of the month. For the rest of autumn, the weather is sunny and still warm enough to take your time traveling up and down the street, hitting the best bars, and maybe even visiting the beach. And winter? It’s hardly a thing in Destin. If you’re looking for a way to escape the coming cold for a while, Destin is your answer.

All Those Sweet Deals

The further we move from summer, the more deals you’ll be able to find in Destin. You’ll find anything from Halloween specials and holiday sales on vacation accommodations to discounts on tourist activities like water sports and spectator sports. You’ll probably even be able to save money on trips to local restaurants and bars, which can come in handy for any vacation. With the end of summer, demand in Destin is slightly lower, which makes it that much better for you if you’re looking for a way to save money.

Gorgeous Sunsets

But if you’re looking for an experience that feels like, well, fall, check out one of Destin’s famous sunsets while you’re here. You can head out to the beach with a rented beach bonfire or rent a vacation property on the beach so you won’t miss it. The deep orange and pink hues of the sky as the sun goes down feel especially vibrant during the fall, and it’s the kind of sunset that’s hard to find throughout the rest of the country.

The Perfect Time to Go Fishing

Destin is known for fishing, so much so that it’s often called the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village.” But here again, it would be a mistake to assume that the best of fishing is over at the end of the summer. On the contrary, fall could be an optimal time of year for Mackerel fishing, as well as Redfish, Mahi, or bass.

It’s always a good time to visit Destin, but fall in particular might just be the best time of year to visit Destin. You just need the right accommodation. Contact Forever Vacation Rentals today about vacation rentals in Destin for your upcoming trip.
