Our Team’s Favorite Things to do During a Gulf Coast Fall!

“The fall sunsets along the Gulf Coast are some of the most colorful of the year. Going to our favorite spot on the beach to watch the sunset is one incredible thing we enjoy doing in the fall. The cooler temperatures of fall allow for great bike rides along paved sidewalks and we even get a workout in! We enjoy meeting with friends on Saturdays to watch college football.” Rashanna E., Human Resources

“We Gators like to game watch at Harry T’s. Good location overlooking the Harbor and even better when we are winning.” Joe C., Reservations Manager

“Taking trips to our local beautiful natural springs, bonfires on the beach, and spending time on Grayton beach with all our friends and family. Let me tell you, after living all over the world, we have it good.” Philip S., Owner Relations Manager

“Stand up paddle boarding is fun in our Gulf, intercoastal waterways and coastal dune lakes. Always on the lookout for sea life!” Mariah B., Reservations

“Many local yoga instructors have classes on the beach in the fall. Such a peaceful place!” Carly B., Reservations

“October is the most glorious month on Pensacola Beach; nesting turtles hatch, the Gulf dazzles, temperatures cool and the Hunters Moon (known as Harvest Moon) guides us all into the grace of rejuvenation!” Joan E., Guest Services

“Kayaking and Ecosploring in South Walton – there’s always something new to discover. The water is so smooth and calm in the Fall!” Katelyn K., Marketing

“You can find wine and food festivals everywhere in the Fall! Fishing also becomes great with the temperature change.” Brad S., Broker/Owner

“Fishing is great in the fall. The Destin Fishing rodeo is always fun and a big deal the whole month of October. When not fishing, we like to go to the docks and watch fishermen bring their catch in to be weighed.” Mike J., Reservations

“Festivals like: The Hangout Oyster Cook-Off and National Shrimp Festival ”  Anne C., Owner Relations Manager.

“Alabama has its shrimp festival in October that is definitely one of my favorites. Also they have an oyster and craft beer at hangout in November. ” Dana J., Owner Relations Manager

“My number one favorite thing to do is checking out live local music. My husband and I enjoy the start of the Broadway/Concert season at Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation.” Kristi W., Controller

“Here’s what I look forward to every fall… Bands on the Beach (every Tuesday in Pensacola)”  Susan K., Owner Relations Manager

“I live and work in Navarre and we are such a great home base to all of the activities in the surrounding areas! September and October are great times to snorkel the reef without all the crowds. At Navarre Park, there is a butterfly house and they do a massive monarch butterfly release in October. Thursday nights at Juana’s Pagoda is always a good time to have a drink and listen to local favorite Stevie Hall play.”  Melissa G., Guest Services
