Fewer Crowds
When you choose to vacation to the Gulf Coast in the fall, you are avoiding the peak season crowds. This means less traffic, fewer people on the beach, and you may even find it easier to get that dinner reservation you have been dreaming of. This also makes it easier to choose the perfect accommodation for your stay. Instead of racing to reserve the beachfront rental, you will have your pick of coastal condos or luxurious rental homes.

Budget-Friendly Rates
Speaking of the perfect vacation rental, you will even find the rates are more affordable in the fall! Fall is the perfect season for those hoping to enjoy a budget-friendly vacation. This doesn’t only apply to your accommodation. Some adventures might even lower their rates after summer ends. These activities include fishing charters, dolphin tours, snorkeling, and more.

Fall Festivals
From Oktoberfest to music festivals, Panama City Beach in the fall hosts incredible events you won’t want to miss. With the weather cooling off, the locals enjoy attending different events throughout the area. Events are a great way for visitors to get to know the community and help support local vendors that call Panama City Beach home.

Beat the Heat!
Once September hits, the weather starts to cool off in the mornings and evenings. The temperature outside in the middle of the day decreases slightly and the water stays warm. This means you can spend more time outside sinking your toes in the sand and swimming in the Gulf.
Outdoor dining and activities are also more accessible when the weather is cooler. Savor the sunshine and bright blue skies.

Hiking and Biking
Panama City Beach is home to a few different hiking and biking locations and when you visit in the fall, they are more enjoyable than in the heat of the summer. Visit St. Andrews State Park and find a mile-and-a-half of pristine beachfront perfect for lounging in the sun or fishing from the shoreline. There is even a walking trail where tall pine trees offer a bit of shade. You may even be greeted by wildlife such as native birds during your walk.

These are only 5 reasons to visit Panama City Beach in the fall! There are an endless number of activities and adventures to experience during the cooler season. Book your stay with Southern Vacation Rentals today and start planning the ultimate Gulf Coast getaway.
