Escape to Panama City Beach This Fall

Panama City Beach is a great place to get away in the fall. Whether you're looking for a vacation full of fun activities, or just want to spend time relaxing by the water, Panama City Beach has something for everyone!

1. Take Advantage of Lower Rates

With the summer crowds dissipating, kids going back to school, and the weather cooling down, this is the perfect time to grab a vacation at a lower cost. If you’re looking to get the biggest bang for your buck, plan an off-season vacation in early fall and take advantage of the lower prices, cooler weather, and smaller crowds. Want to see just how great the savings are? Just take a look at our Panama City Beach resorts selection!

2. Less Crowds

Take a hint from the locals, late summer-early fall is the best time to get out and enjoy all that Panama City Beach has to offer. With the summer crowds gone and the kids back in school, it’s the perfect opportunity to visit some of the more popular attractions, like Shell Island, without the wait.

3. Cooler Weather

You can look for cooler weather right around early September in the Florida panhandle. The temperatures start dropping off, bringing us cooler nights, less humidity but surprisingly warm waters. This makes for the perfect opportunity to enjoy the beaches and the outdoors without getting overheated. The cooler weather also makes for great outdoor dining and drinking outdoors, too. Relax at one of Panama City Beach’s many great beachside restaurants and bars, check out a live show, or sip a cocktail aboard a dolphin cruise as the sun sets beyond the horizon.

4. Festivals

From September 30 - October 2, you can enjoy the 4th annual rock music festival, SandJam Music Festival. The whole family can enjoy The Pirates of the High Seas & Renaissance Fest from October 3-9, 2022. This annual event celebrates the legacy of the pirates who once roamed the Gulf of Mexico and pillaged the Emerald Coast, telling the tale of Dominique Youx and his crew of loyal buccaneers through staged pirate battles and storytelling. Raise a glass and don your lederhosen for our annual Oktoberfest celebration, October 14-16. This year’s festivities will feature stein hosting competitions, live music and plenty of activities for the kids. 

5. Fishing Season

According to Captain Nathan Chennaux, if you are an angler looking for some fun, productive time on the water, then fall is the time of year to be in Panama City Beach. As the water temperature cools, predator fish begin to feast on schools of baitfish that are preparing to migrate to warmer waters, this makes for some exciting fishing action. Whether you prefer to fish inshore, around the inlets, or along the beaches, there will be plenty of fish to catch, including the elusive tarpon and sought-after flounder. We recommend Reel Commocean for an unforgettable fishing trip!

6. Breathtaking Sunsets

All sunsets are beautiful, but if you haven’t seen a fall sunset in Panama City Beach, you are missing out! During the fall, the low-hanging clouds make for some of the most spectacular and breathtaking sunsets we have ever seen, leaving you with stunning pink and fiery orange sky.

Perfect Time to Vacation

Whether you enjoy relaxing or being busy and taking in the sights, you can’t go wrong in Panama City. If you like the beaches, why not book a Panama City Beach condo right on the beach? Emerald View Resorts has everything you need to make your fall vacation perfect.
