While you might think that autumn’s peak is the perfect season to stick around town to observe the colorful, falling leaves, you should probably be picturing yourself on a faraway beach in sunny Florida. Don’t be disheartened yet again this fall by a lack of color or a rained-out vacation in the forest, because the best season to visit St Pete Beach is autumn. Nothing tops basking in the golden sunlight on a white-sand beach along Florida’s Gulf Coast! Gulf Winds Resort has quickly evolved into one of the premier romantic getaways in Florida because our oceanfront condos are centrally located to all of the best couples-friendly activities, such as fine dining, spa treatments, museums, and, of course, seemingly neverending beach relaxation.

10 Reasons to Visit St Pete Beach This Fall

There are literally dozens of reasons to visit Florida’s Gulf Coast this fall, but we whittled the list down to ten favorites. St Pete Beach didn’t become one of the best romantic getaways in Florida by happenstance—specifically, couples love sprawling out on one of America’s five best beaches.

  1. Flights and resort rates are cheaper than summer and winter. We cannot blame you for wanting to save hundreds of dollars on a well-deserved romantic getaway or Florida honeymoon.
  2. Autumn ushers in perfect temperatures. From late September through November, St Pete Beach typically sits in the ideal low-80s.
  3. Don’t be disappointed by your area’s fall colors. We’ve all embarked on a much-anticipated fall vacation in search of vibrant foliage and discovered either a mostly-green landscape or a foresty full of leafless trees.
  4. Visit John’s Pass Seafood & Music Festival, one of the most anticipated events of the year. Savor the many flavors of the Gulf, sway to free live music, and wear your best costume at the Halloween Block Party.
  5. Play 18 holes at a nearby golf course. Leave your coat and winter hat at home, because you won’t have to brave the elements here in sunny St Pete. Gulf Winds Resort’s affordable, ocean-view St Pete Beach condos are within minutes from several top-rated golf courses, including Isla Del Sol, Pasadena, and St Petersburg Country Club.
  6. Bask in the golden Florida sunshine with your toes in soft, white sand. Gulf Winds Resort itself has evolved into one of the premier romantic getaways in Florida thanks to our two-bedroom sunset suites, easy beach access, and heated swimming pool. In fact, we’re just 50 feet from a full day spent at the beach!
  7. Plan a romantic day-trip to nearby Tampa. Some of our favorite romantic attractions in this beautiful city include the Tampa Theatre, Executive Helicopter Tours, CW’s Gin Joint, and the Tampa Museum of Art. The Dali Museum in nearby St Petersburg is also a can’t-miss attraction.
  8. Seafood is always in-season here in St Pete Beach. Whether you’re aiming to devour a plate of fish tacos, batter-fried grouper, or a lobster roll, you’ll quickly “fall” for our down-to-earth culinary scene.
  9. Nothing beats snorkeling in St Pete Beach. Read this article to get a better understanding of our diverse, underwater friends.
