One of the best kept secrets on the Gulf Coast is how unbelievably amazing the gorgeous crystal blue sky days, and cooler weather of Fall can be along our stunning coastal paradise, with our renowned white sand, emerald surf beaches.
The nice temperatures and cloudless horizons are not the only reasons, however. Imagine enjoying uncrowded, tranquil beaches, with practically no traffic or obnoxious tourists as well as unhindered access to shops, restaurants and attractions.
This is anything but the off season. To us at 30-A Suites, the premier boutique hotel on the Emerald Coast, it’s definitely the *best* season as rates for everything from lodging to entertainment are lower and with the cooler weather comes a whole host of outdoor festivities you and your spouse will love.
For those visiting in early October, take advantage of the annual Destin Seafood Festival, which is so much more than a festival to us. It is a tribute to the rich history of ‘The Luckiest Fishing Village’ on earth, Destin, and the fishing community that calls it home.
With more than 60,000 visitors attending annually, The Seafood Festival takes place along the beautiful Destin Harbor and the Harbor Boardwalk, with the lively action of the Destin Fishing Rodeo right in the heart of it all. There is always lots of excitement along the docks as the fishing vessels come to port with their catches to be weighed and photographed, and after a day spent lounging on our ultra white, super soft sand beaches, your family will be able to satisfy their cravings for locally caught, gulf seafood, in the freshest possible way… just steps from the boat they were caught on.
This three day festival is full of arts, crafts, music, food, entertainment, fireworks, and excitement for all! It is perfect for out of town guests, showcasing the best that Destin has to offer, including the largest Fishing Fleet in the nation, gourmet restaurants, unique bars and our breathtaking sunsets, as guests stroll along the Harbor Boardwalk, from one end to the other, with over a mile of Festival, right there on the water!
Situated amidst the rolling, polished quartz crystal sand dunes and the crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico, 30-A Suites offers guests a luxurious stay with an exclusive feeling, set away from the hustle and bustle of the main drag, along scenic route 30-A, for which the property takes its moniker, in beautiful Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. Ideal for the traveler that prefers a more authentic, laid back vacation, our gorgeous rentals are the epitome of personalized comfort with a modern flare.
Each uniquely decorated unit has been designed to be your coastal oasis surrounded by lush tropical foliage and fragrant blooms of jasmine or magnolia. Our guests will find spacious living areas complete with cozy furniture, fully equipped kitchens, sumptuous bedding, crisp linens, oversized bathrooms with modern luxuries, and private patios overlooking our breathtaking landscape.
Nearby activities you will love include exploring the historical grounds of Eden State Park, visiting a preserved plantation, perusing art vendors along the boardwalk, golfing at some of the most prestigious courses in the country, diving, sports fishing charters, and so much more you may not know where to begin.
Enjoy a romantic dinner for two at one of many gourmet eateries close by to your rooms, then enjoy a leisurely stroll down the soft white shoreline as you count the shooting stars. Or stay in and wrap yourselves in our Egyptian cotton bathrobes while you dine on freshly caught gulf seafood prepared right in the comfort and intimacy of your suite’s complete kitchen.
Close the night with a movie, snuggled into our down comforters and plush pillows, serenaded by a chorus of crickets, tree frogs, and owls mingling with the steady sound of the surf, just a few steps away from your room.
So this Fall, take a break from it all and come take advantage of the cool weather and uncrowded beaches, along with all the great outdoor festivities, on the Emerald Coast with a stay at the incomparable 30-A Suites, the most gorgeous boutique hotel in Northeast Florida.
