The Emerald Coast in Winter Time
As arctic air continues to sweep across the country, we are not going to complain about our temperatures, although chilly, at 45 & sunny today. The forecast calls for the temps to slowly rise each day, going back into the 60’s by next week.
The Emerald Coast is an amazing place to visit any time of year, but the winter months offer extra perks. It’s a perfect time for a trip to the beach for the following reasons:
- Lowest Rates – The winter months offer the lowest rates on beach homes and condos in Destin, Fl. Look for the winter or January “specials” tab on the rental agency websites.
- Dining Deals – During the cooler months, Destin restaurants offer early bird or snow bird specials, happy hours, and winter deals to boost business during the slower season.
- Fewer Crowds – During the winter months, the lines are shorter and wait times are so much better. In addition, no traffic mayhem! You will, most likely, also meet some locals if you venture to any of our favorite restaurants.
- Outdoor Activities – Since Destin is such a popular vacation destination, many local businesses now offer a great variety of activities such as kite flying, dinner cruises, and dolphin excursions. The possibilities are endless. Check out the “activities” tab to find something just right for your visit.
