What’s not to love about this time of year? The weather is dreamy, the crowds are calm and the holiday season is right around the corner. What’s even better? We have the privilege of enjoying the beautiful beaches here along the Emerald Coast year round. A little chilly weather doesn’t stop us from keeping the white sand between our toes. Here are some great ways that you and your family can continue to enjoy the beach throughout the month of November.

I don’t know about you, but this sounds like my kind of night! I think I’ll just take a moment and drift off into daydreams of family and friends gathered around a fire on the beach, sharing laughs and special memories…There is no need to daydream though, because as long as you acquire a permit, you can spend every weekend of November doing just that.

The bonfire just provides the centerpiece for your evening. The highlights of your evening around the fire will be what makes the night so special. Roasting marshmallows, telling stories and playing games with friends and loved ones will be memories that last a lifetime.

Sunset & Takeout

This might be one of our favorite ideas for enjoying the beach during the fall months. Sunsets are pretty popular among the locals of South Walton and everyone seems to have their favorite viewing spot. Why not throw on your long sleeves, pick up your favorite takeout and head to the beach?

A big blanket, your favorite takeout and a South Walton sunset – what more could you ask for? One night of that and you may find yourself coming back multiple times a week.

If you don’t know how to play bocce ball, I suggest you put that on your list of things to learn how to do. This is a perfect game for the beach and is fun for the whole family. The genius bocce ball people have also made a glow-in-the-dark version that can be played at night and it’s basically the coolest thing since sliced bread. Game night on the beach, anyone?
