Fall Happenings Around Destin

Fall is our absolute favorite time of year here at the Sea Oats Motel

The original beachfront escape on the Emerald Coast featuring unmatched comfort, convenience and serenity.Located away from all the hustle and bustle of the main thoroughfare, yet still only moments away from all the amazing action that Destin, Florida is so famous for.

Well, that and our spectacular, white sand beaches and sparkling green surf of course.

With the cooler months of autumn ushering in clear, gorgeous weather, it makes being out in our coastal paradise that much more amazing! Perhaps thats why this time of year is often known as Festival Season, because of all the great outdoor gatherings that take place.

This year, for families visiting the beautiful beaches of Destin and the surrounding areas during the month of October, are in for a special Treat, without any Trick as the City of Fort Walton Beach Heritage Park & Cultural Center present the 7th Annual Haunted History Tours based on authentic local history, folk stories and spooky downtown historic sites.
