I remember when my kids were in preschool and even before they started school, there was never the pressure to take a beach vacation before Labor Day. In fact I think we enjoyed not only the lower rates but the lower crowds after Labor Day. I wanted to introduce you to one of the best fall beach vacations for the Family, Gulf County Located in Northwest Florida, Gulf County boasts 43 miles of natural shoreline.
Our family loves to take adventures when we are at the beach. In August we headed to the beach and rented paddleboards, Kayaks and my boys went on a fishing charter. Now that my kids are older, they have a tough time just sitting at the beach all day, in fact I don’t like it. One important feature we look for on our vacations is somewhere that can provide different adventures. Gulf County Florida is not just a beach destination but a place your family can have an adventure.
Here are some unique features about Gulf County Florida, it has two time zones, only two stop lights and spotty Wi-Fi, which really helps you unwind and spend quality time with your family. Beaches in GCFL are consistently ranked in the top ten US beaches to bring your pets on vacation. Leashed pets are welcome on the beach at all times. This is a huge plus for our family. To me this is so important as our dog Chloe is part of our family and she adores the beach. Worried about renting a dog friendly house, no worries many vacation rentals are dog friendly in Gulf County, saving you money on boarding the dog.
When I try a new vacation spot I love to get restaurant recommendations and other hints to make the trip the best possible. Lucky of us, Gulf County loyalist (and locals) are an engaged group on Facebook particularly. They will happily chime in with recommendations and hidden secrets because they are proud of GCFL.
Come visit GCFL and see for yourself how this is the best Fall beach destination. Around every corner in GCFL there is an easy adventure. Snorkel with the young starfish in St. Joseph Bay. Camp right on the beach and gaze at the stars. Fish off a pier or with a charter captain at the tip of the Cape. Then, learn how to cook your catch that night. Quietly kayak on the Dead Lakes and see pre-historic looking animals and trees. When we look for beach vacations we look for locations where the beach is not the only entertainment. Head out on your own on a kayak or paddleboard or hire one of their local experts for eco-tours, guided snorkeling and kayak fishing trips.
