It’s the perfect season for beach photography along the Emerald Coast! Can’t you just see it now? Visit one of the Emerald Coast cities which include Destin and Fort Walton Beach and are simply beautiful for those fall visitors who want to live like a local for a week with less crowded beaches and lingering summer weather.
Most of our neighboring states have fall break, if you live in one of these states, take the opportunity to visit the beach if for nothing else but to see the most awe inspiring sunsets of the year. It is also a time to try some of our most popular restaurants like The Red Bar, Bud and Alleys and Harbor Docks without the several hour wait you may experience at our peak season during the summer.
A random fact you may not know is there are 13 beach access points within the city limits of Destin. Eleven are city-owned facilities, one site is owned by the county and one site is owned by the state. Parking is limited at the city beach access points and many only provide access to the beach.
