3 Reasons to Fall for Alabama Beaches

Alabama beaches are among the most beautiful in the world, and fall and winter are the perfect times to visit.

My husband and I have always planned our Gulf Coast beach trips in September/October as it’s our favorite time to visit by far. Why do we “fall” for Alabama Beaches?

While Alabama beaches are a wonderful vacation destination any time of year, (I’m partial to Christmas too!) fall remains our favorite time to visit. I just know you’ll “Fall for Alabama Beaches” too.

Low Crowds

The kids are back in school and the summer surge has abated. The traffic isn’t bad and you can spread out on the beach and almost feel like you have it all to yourself!

There generally won’t be long wait times at the many Gulf Shores or Orange Beach restaurants either.

Ideal Weather

It’s warm enough to enjoy the water and bask in the sun, but not so hot that you’ll break a sweat just sitting there. The water temperature is perfect too.

Seasonal Rates

Visiting Alabama in the fall can save you a bundle. You’ll enjoy off-peak rates on beach accommodations in addition to the low crowds and gorgeous weather. We stayed at a Young’s Suncoast vacation rental and couldn’t have been happier. Rain? No problem. Take a dip in the indoor heated pool!

And the view from the rooms can’t be beaten!
