Why You Should Visit the Beach In the Fall - Gibson Beach Rentals

Now that summer has officially come and gone we can now look forward to those Fall weekend getaways. While many are preparing for Winter and colder weather ahead, nothing gives you a better break from reality than a quick trip to the warm beach. And there is plenty more to look forward to than just warm weather here in Destin, FL this time of year.


The summer crowds are gone, the views are spectacular, and the temperatures are just right. It’s time to leave those worries behind and visit your favorite Florida beach destination, right here on the Emerald Coast. Read on to find out why a visit to the beautiful beaches on the Emerald Coast should be on the top of your to-do list this Fall.


The Weather

Beautiful days and crisp evenings are what you can expect to find here in Florida’s luckiest fishing village in November. With the average temperature being 72 during the day and 48 at night, you’ll find the temperature is just right for hanging out at the beach. And with the cooler temperatures at night, you’ll get to enjoy one of our favorite beach activities we don’t get to enjoy other times of the year: beach bonfires.

Less Crowds

If you’re tired of dealing with the crowds and want a stress-free relaxing time at the beach, you’re in luck. The highly sought after sugar-sand beaches with stunning views of the emerald green waters are nearly empty once the crowds of summer have gone. Once Fall arrives and the kids go back to school, many families don’t think of planning a vacation back to the beach until the Spring or Summer. That leaves those lucky tourists who choose to stay here in the Fall a nice calm day by the water without the struggle of finding the perfect spot in the sand. While others are planning their holiday trips to the mountains and snow, see why you should be spending Thanksgiving at the beach right here on the Florida Emerald Coast. 


The Sunset Views

With the new season upon us, you’ll be falling in love with the stunning Destin sunset views. There’s simply nothing like it! During the Fall months, the sun starts to set right over the Gulf of Mexico, so it will make those sunset beach walks, moments to remember.


Lower Rates

As if all the reasons we gave before weren’t good enough to convince you to visit the beach in the Fall, the lower rates are sure to convince you to start planning your trip! Because there are less people visiting Destin and Miramar Beach, FL this time of year, you’ll typically see rates are a fraction of the price you would see during the Summer. Not only are the vacation rates cheaper in the Fall and Winter months, but even restaurants offer “off-season” pricing, discounts, or you’ll even see special menus and Happy Hours this time of year.
