And while the temperatures might be very pleasant — in the 70s and 80s — the festivals and special events really begin to heat up along the Emerald Coast. Of course, you’ll need somewhere to stay while visiting this paradise and taking advantage of the pleasant weather and full calendar. That’s where the cool savings of 15 percent off your stay at a Sterling Resorts vacation rental in Destin, Panama City Beach, or Highway 30-A can really make a difference.

Book a stay any time between now and October 31 at Sterling Resorts properties along the Emerald Coast and use the promo code “FALL15” to takeSterling Resorts upscale balcony with wicker  furniture and panoramic view of the beach and Gulf along Highway 30-A advantage of this fantastic fall deal and enjoy the region’s version of fall colors — sugar-white sands, blue-green waters, light-blue skies overhead, and plentiful yellow-orange sunshine. This is a deal that can save your sanity just as much as it saves you some money. The breathtaking views will soothe your soul, while the Fall Break Special will stretch your budget.

In fact, saving 15 percent means having more spending money for some of those fall events happening in the Florida Panhandle. The weather is near-perfect, the summer crowds have dwindled, and the vacation rental rates have dropped, so there is absolutely no reason you shouldn’t treat yourself to what could be the best getaway you’ll have in years.

Fishing, Fun, and Games in Destin

Destin is often referred to as the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village,” so it’s only fitting that you use money saved on booking a Destin condo to buy or rent tackle and participate in the annual Destin Fishing Rodeo,  which runs all month long. Book your spot on a participating charter boat and spend a day at sea reeling in good times and fish before heading back for daily weigh-ins and prizes. Who knows, maybe you will even catch dinner for the family that night, as most charter captains will clean and filet the fish for you.

Have an eye for good art? Then feast your eyes upon the colorful creations at the Annual Festival of the Arts, October 24–26. Shop around and bring home a masterpiece!

Perhaps you’re planning to attend the Emerald Coast Con gaming convention. Scheduled for October 23-25, it’s just minutes down the road at the Emerald Coast Convention Center on Okaloosa Island. Book a vacation rental in Destin instead and perfect your gamer costume with the money you saved on accommodations.

There’s something happening every weekend in Destin in October, so it’s a great time to take advantage of this marvelous time of year on the Gulf Coast.

About an hour to the east, Panama City Beach is a place well known as a popular destination for Spring Breakers, but fall there is every bit as lively. Active types will want to book a Sterling Resort condo or townhome there and maybe use the savings to splurge on a cool new helmet for the Thunder Beach Autumn Rally taking place October 21-25. There’s nothing quite like feeling the warm rays and cool breezes on your face as you wheel along the beach roads and other scenic routes on your bike.

Anglers will enjoy some family bonding – and maybe win cash prizes (another financial windfall) –  at the Fall Fishing Challenge , which takes place each weekend at Russell-Fields Pier during the month of October.

Or come thirsty and use your vacation rental savings to savor the “spirits” – dozens of different brews – at the first-ever Brew N’ Boo Halloween Beer Festival, to be held at Pier Park on October 31. It’s for a good cause, too, because a portion of the proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society!

Choose Highway 30-A for a Delightful Change of Pace

Stretching between bustling Destin and Panama City Beach is scenic Highway 30-A, a quaint collection of coastal communities made up mainly of beach homes for rent; marketplaces chock-full of charming shops, art galleries, and gift shops; and eateries offering fresh local seafood and spectacular views.

Full of as much colorful art as colorful scenery, this area is great for those who want to take it slow and just enjoy the tranquility. Staying at a beach home on Highway 30-A is about admiring natural beauty and eclectic culture, and so October is filled, not with big concerts or busy festivals, but with farmers’ markets and sidewalk art displays. In fact, there’s a farmers’ market practically every day in the cool coastal communities like Rosemary Beach and WaterColor. And you can indulge your inner art critic during the First Friday Art Walk in Seaside and Grayton Beach. Don’t worry, there is still a little active nightlife on the 30-A scene. Visitors can get their groove on with the Fall Music Series at 723 Whiskey Bravo in Seagrove Beach every Thursday in October.

So, as you can see, this gorgeous stretch of highway offers more great spots to take advantage of the 15-percent savings on a beach home rental. Maybe you could put those dollars toward picking up some fresh produce at the farmers’ market for a home-cooked meal or splurging on a special evening out.

Save 15 percent when you take advantage of the Sterling Resorts Fall Break Special in October, and consider it a reinvestment in your fun funds.
