Summer may be over and Fall is here, but that doesn’t mean that coming to the beach has to end. Here on the Emerald Coast you can still enjoy sitting on the beach and soaking up the sunshine. The average temperatures in October are low 80s for highs and lows in the mid 60s. Not too shabby. Sort of a secret season Destin Florida is about tranquil a place to be during the fall months.
There are many different events happening during the month of September into October that you can’t miss! Staying in one of our Destin FL rentals will make you want to come back each fall for your family vacations.
Concerts in the Village
If you are looking for a family-friendly fun, then check out the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation concerts on Thursday Nights. On September 27th hear the Pickled Pickers beginning at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, as you listen to them play some feel-good music for the soul. October 4th hear Forrest Williams Banks and on October 11th hear Season Ammons Band play. Admission to the concerts are $15 per person but children 12 and under are free of charge.
