One of the "Top 10 Fall Travel Destinations" in 2011" - National Geographic

This year, it's your turn to find out what makes the Emerald Coast a great fall destination.


Autumn along northwestern Florida' s 24-mile-long Emerald Coast brings fewer tourists and lower, "value season" rates to the wide, sugar-white beaches of Destin, Fort Walton, and Okaloosa Island. The summer-worthy temperatures (highs in the 80s, lows in the 60s) are ideal for swimming in clear, emerald-green Gulf of Mexico waters or for golfing the more than 1,080 manicured, championship holes.


October' s month-long Destin Fishing Rodeo draws more than 30,000 saltwater anglers to the self-proclaimed World' s Luckiest Fishing Village to compete for daily, weekly, and overall prizes. Watch the daily weigh-ins of king mackerel, marlin, sailfish, and other game fish on the docks at A.J.' s Seafood & Oyster Bar. Sample fresh-from-the-docks seafood at historic Staff' s Restaurant, the Emerald Coast' s first eatery, which is housed in a 1913 barrel-shaped Fort Walton warehouse and open daily for dinner. The signature Broiled Skillet—grouper, shrimp, scallops, and crabmeat stuffing drizzled with cheese—comes with baskets of fresh-baked wheat bread.

Late Summer and Fall Is the Season for Young Families!

Did you know that late-summer and Fall are great times of year for family vacations?


Those with preschoolers or homeschoolers have come to know and enjoy the "golden" weeks after the school-age kids are back in school as the perfect time to travel! Why are Destin and the Resorts of Pelican Beach so popular at this time of year?


Young families can enjoy our great location and outstanding vacation condominiums at lower rates, with reduced crowds, and even better temperatures than the hot summer months. Plus, convenient resort amenities such as Chan' s Market Cafè makes "parent-time" just a bit easier when the little ones wind down for the evening! Of course though, families with school age kids can also advantage with weekend getaways and particularly during Fall Break, Columbus Day and Thanksgiving weekends, too!
