One of the things we like most about Gulf Shores is how pleasant the weather can be in September and October. A nearly perfect opportunity for a FALL BREAK your family will never forget!
While the temperatures do vary from year to year, early autumn generally sees the thermometer in the high 60’s to low 80’s. Maybe a little chilly to swim – but, we think it’s a wonderful time to enjoy our shoreline with fewer folks around. If you have experienced our beaches before, you may see them in a whole new perspective – without larger summertime crowds to contend with.
Think of it as a continuation of your summertime-fun. There are numerous reasons WHY you should visit Gulf Shores for a fall break.
The “off-season” can be very economical time for family travel. You will enjoy off-peak rates on beachside accommodations and attractions. Many restaurants, attractions and accommodations lower their prices during the off-season. For families, the savings can be significant. You will certainly get more for less – across the boards. Plus, if you have always dreamed of renting a beach house, now might be the perfect time to do so!
OUTSTANDING BEACH WEATHER
There is still plenty of sun to warm you up – and, the cooler temperatures allow you to enjoy more time on the beach while the waters are still warm enough to swim in. After Labor Day, there are times when it will feel like your own private beach.
Now that the temperature isn’t scorching hot, take time to explore one of the Gulf’s many wonderful parks. A great opportunity to rent a kayak, go biking or just take a leisurely hike through nature.
As school moves back into session, whether in-person or virtually, naturally fewer families are leaving for a beach vacation. This translates to waiting times that are anywhere from short to ZERO at the most popular restaurants and attractions. Traveling during the fall will give you a break from the crowds that otherwise populate the beach. The driving is more stress-free driving as well as there are fewer cars to contend with.
We invite you to give the area a visit and relax a while. You will quickly see why we think the Gulf Shores area of Alabama is the perfect Fall Break destination for you and your family. While a rental may be your short term choice, we would appreciate the chance to help show you around and guide you toward the perfect investment property.
