October is a wonderful month along the shores of Northwest Florida and Coastal Alabama. The weather is brilliant; warm enough for the beach and cool enough for a range of other activities, including fishing in the Destin Fishing Rodeo!
An annual event, the Destin Fishing Rodeo is highly anticipated. It is fun for locals and visitors, even those who don’t fish. If you do fish, however, make your plans now. We’ve got awesome condos near downtown Destin so you will be close to all the action. And, all you need to participate is a reservation aboard a registered charter boat. That’s right, entry is free, aside from your charter trip. Virtually every game fish is open during this event. Troll for King Mackerel and Sailfish or fish the deep for Grouper and area favorite Red Snapper!
Now if you don’t fish, don’t worry. The weigh-ins are just as much fun as being out on the boat. Pick a spot along the docks and watch as the boats come in to show off their haul each evening. Sunday’s at AJ’s Restaurant on the Destin Harbor are particularly exciting. Plan your fall trip now!
The Destin Seafood Festival is a time-honored tradition here along the Gulf Coast and it also happens to be right around the corner. Make your October vacation plans now and get back to the docks in time for the festival and the Destin Fishing Rodeo!
The seafood festival is now in its 35th year and we can’t wait to have you back on the docks of the Destin Harbor for it again this year. The festival celebrates the beginning of Destin as a simple fishing village with music, fireworks, art, crafts, and, of course, seafood! Enjoy three days of entertainment and delicious fish, shrimp and much more. Entrance to the festival is free so come out for family fun under the sun and the brilliant blue skies of October.
