It’s no secret that Panama City Beach, Florida is a favorite summer vacation destination for families all over the east coast. Although summertime is our busiest time of year, we love the late summer/fall season at the beach. If you are looking for a fun fall getaway before the holiday season then look no further than Panama City Beach!
We’ve put together three of our favorite reasons to visit Panama City (and Race City, of course) during the fall season.
- Weather Perfection – Summer is the most popular time of the year and also the hottest. With temperatures into the 90’s during June and July, things really start to cool off in September and October. During the fall months, you still get all the benefits of the beach – playing in the water, tanning, enjoying a long walk on the shoreline – but without the constant need for water and shade. We love the pleasant weather during the fall months and you will too!
- Goodbye Crowds – If you’ve ever been to Panama City Beach in June or July then you know that our beaches fill up with friends and family from all over the country as they celebrate their summer breaks. We love seeing new people come to town, but once the peak season is over, we have to admit, quiet time on the beach is delightful. All the wonderful entertainment that Panama City Beach has to offer is still available for travelers and locals alike, just with less people to worry about. Shorter waits at your favorite restaurants, family-fun attractions like Race City, and less traffic. Oh, and did we mention a ton more space on the beach?
- Lower Rates and Special Events – Fall is full of local festivals and events for travelers to enjoy. From food festivals to music festivals, the fun never stops in Panama City. There is always something to do, no matter the season! Whether you are staying for a long weekend or 2 weeks, you’ll find that hotel and condo rates are lower during the fall season. With less demand for rooms, many places offer deals or free nights to their guests.
Better rates, less crowds, and perfect weather with all the fun and entertainment of the summer season? You can’t beat a fall getaway to Panama City Beach, Florida!
