Fall Along 30A
As we enter fall, we are thankful for some cooler weather on our beautiful beaches. With family and friends coming into town soon, our office members and agents all reminisced on some of their favorite things about fall here on the Emerald Coast that we can’t wait to share with you!
Perfect Weather on the Gulf
Chilly mornings that heat up into the perfect low 70s during the day are the ultimate fall days here on the Emerald Coast. As the weather cools down, the Gulf of Mexico clears up, calms down and still remains in the 70s – making it the ideal time for water sports! The water color also tends to be more vibrant with beautiful blues and emerald greens.
Bonfire season! Bonfires on the beach are unbeatable – there is nothing better than watching the beautiful fall sunset wrapped up in a cozy blanket with a cocktail. The night sky can seem close enough to touch at the beach, and the chilly-clear starlight is a bonus of fall’s reduced humidity and temperatures.
The calmness of fall makes our beach towns feel more like home. As much as we love a good rush, during fall we are able to enjoy quiet secluded beaches and local restaurants without much of a wait. Spend a fall afternoon walking on the harbor and watching the fishing boats come back and weigh their fish while dining at an outdoor eatery – you won’t regret it!
Fall Festivals and Events
We love all of the fall festivals, especially the Watercolor Film Festival that celebrate the beach lifestyle and the changing season. Music festivals, food and beer festivals flood the Emerald Coast throughout our fall months. View some upcoming events by clicking here.
Stunning Outdoor Space to Enjoy Fall
Susan Kiley from Bay Breeze Patio joined us in sharing how to get the most out of fall by creating an outdoor living environment you will love. She shared, “each year, I enjoy watching the evolution of products that cater to those who enjoy spending time outdoors with the comforts and conveniences enjoyed inside the home.”
Alys Beach is known for its courtyard homes, like the photo above of 45 N. Charles Street that features a zen dipping pool with fountain along with plenty of outdoor living space that is private to the home. Courtyards provide the perfect intimate space to host family and friends while enjoying the beautiful fall weather.
Burnt Pine is a gated neighborhood within the Sandestin community, and many of the luxury homes feature screened lanais like this beautiful one pictured from 2952 Pine Valley Drive. Screened lanais not only keep bugs and debris out of the outdoor living space while you are enjoying time outside, but they also add value to your home when it comes time sell!
