Spend Thanksgiving at the Beach ~ Southern Vacation Rentals

We’re just five days into November and we can’t believe 2018 is almost over! As the year wraps up, we like to take some time to reflect on some of the things we’ve been thankful for. First and foremost, we’re so thankful to be able to live, work, and play right here on these beautiful beaches! So many guests flock to Northwest Florida and Coastal Alabama for warmer weather this time of year, and many of us can step out into our backyards and see the beautiful blue water.  We’re also thankful for the beauty of a Gulf Coast sunset. If you have yet to experience a sunset on the beach in the fall or winter, you’re in for a treat! The sky becomes tinged with violet and streaks of orange – stick around on the beach after 5 PM to catch one of these magnificent sunsets! Shake things up a little bit and spend Thanksgiving at the beach with family. We hand-picked two homes and two vacation condos in Destin and Fort Walton Beach, Florida that we think you’ll love! Read below and don’t forget to book direct with us when you found the perfect spot.
