Spring Break on the Gulf Coast ~ Southern Vacation Rentals

Before you know it, the sun will be out and shining and warmer weather will be upon us! Some of you are most likely beginning to prepare for spring break and summer vacations. It’s never too soon to start planning in our books! We doubt that you need a reason to visit the Gulf Coast at any time of year, but trust us when we say there’s nothing like spring break on the Gulf Coast. Dust that cold weather off and head down south to experience just how beautiful our area is at this time of year. Just to entice you a little further, here are some fun things to do for spring break on the Gulf Coast. The best part is that when you book your beach activity through our Southern Perks partners, you’ll receive a special discount!

Dolphin Cruise

There’s nothing like experiencing these beautiful marine creatures in their natural habitat! During your stay, our Southern Perks partners offer numerous discounts on dolphin cruises and tours. Just bring a blanket and your camera and get ready to have a good time! Whether you’re staying in Destin or Pensacola Beach, Florida, or Gulf Shores, Alabama, our Southern Perks partners can help you out!

Snorkeling Tours

It might be a little chilly if you decide to snorkel in March, but come April the water will be just fine! A snorkel adventure is also a great way to see some marine life. Some of our Partners will also take you out to a reef and you’ll be able to swim and explore the area. As an added bonus, you can even embark on a dolphin cruise and a snorkel tour at the same time with select Southern Perks partners!

Beach Bonfires

Our Southern Perks activities aren’t just limited to the water – there are plenty of things you can do on land as well! One of our favorite ways to make the most of the beautiful spring weather is with a beach bonfire. If you’re staying out on 30A or in Panama City Beach, there are several companies who can make this happen for you. If you elect to set up your own beach bonfire,you have to go through Walton and Bay counties to get a fire permit set up, but if you use a company like 30A Beach Bonfires, they will take care of the permit for you! Just be sure to schedule your bonfire at least a week in advance so they have plenty of time to secure your permit. Some bonfire companies even offer add-on packages so you can have the most authentic bonfire possible. This includes providing s’mores, beverages, sparklers, and more!
