My favorite season along the Emerald Coast is the Fall.  The weather becomes less humid, the Gulf remains warm, and the overall amount of visitors in town goes down significantly.  Talk to the locals and they’ll agree, the Fall truly is the best time of year to be by the beach.  Another reason Fall is so special in Destin is many festivals and events take place this time of year.  If you find time to get away and head to our area in the next few months, you will want to allocate time to check out one or more of these great events.
