Five Reasons Why Everyone Loves Labor Day Beach Vacations

Your Friend at the Beach is asked over and over… is Labor Day a great time to come to the beach?

YES – and here are just five reasons why your next beach vacation on 30A or in the Destin area should be for Labor Day 2019!


1. The beach is less crowded!  Destin and 30A are family friendly area – so guests with children are already back in school and busy with fall schedules. Our beaches are wide open and you will have your pick of beach chairs!


2. Is the water in the gulf warm?  Absolutely – the average temperature of the Gulf of Mexico is 85 in early September.  The pools at Adagio, Villa Coyabaand San Remo are just as warm as well.


3. Enjoy your favorite restaurants, watersports and shopping without the long lines of summer time.   We update our free APP “YFAB” with our favorite restaurants in the Destin and 30A area so you know not just where to eat, but what to eat. Explore the exciting shops of 30A and Destin for end of the summer special sales.


4. Concerts and Fireworks – just like 4th of July but without the crowds:

  • Summer Concert Series at Gulley Amphitheater Gulf Place – Sunday, September 1, 2019, 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm. This event is totally free and family friendly! Bring your chairs, blanket, cooler and some bug spray and we will see you on the lawn! 
  • Baytowne Art Walk – live music from local artists and a variety of art work for three nights starting August 30th and ending September 1st. 5-10 PM nightly at the Village of Baytowne Wharf.
  • Destin Labor Day Concert celebration at the Emerald Grande on Sunday, September 1st, starting at 6:30PM with free concerts than ends with fireworks until 9:30PM.


5.    Labor Day is the end of high season, so not only have the crowds gone home, the rates have gone down.
