1. Fewer Crowds

One of the things that visitors love most about the fall season in Pensacola Beach is that there are fewer crowds. Since most people visit Pensacola Beach during the summer, the crowds vanish once school starts which serves to enhance this calm and relaxed paradise.

2. Fall Festivals

Some of our favorite festivals in Pensacola happen during the fall. From large-scale food and art festivals to intimate dinners, shows and markets, Pensacola has events that are sure to get you up on your feet.

3. Gorgeous Sunrises & Sunsets

While the sunsets and sunrises are beautiful in Pensacola Beach throughout the entire year, there’s something different about them in the fall. With the sun rising a little later, it’s easier to wake up in time to see it rise over the Gulf of Mexico. Fall is also the only time of year when the sun rises and sets directly over the Gulf of Mexico, which is a sight everyone should see at least once in their life! There’s nothing prettier than looking out at the turquoise water in the Gulf against a cotton candy sky.

4. Beautiful Weather

Forget the sweating and the potential sunburns you might get during the summer. Fall brings more comfortable and relaxing temperatures. If you’re looking for a little cooler weather that’s still warm enough for swimming, fall is the perfect time to visit Pensacola Beach

5. Spectacular Fall Fishing

They call it the running of the bull! Pensacola’s annual bounty of bull redfish is sure to have boats chasing diving birds and white water throughout this fall in pursuit of as many fish as an angler can haul into the boat. If you’re looking for an awesome adventure, call Captain Andy Arnold at (850)776-0019.
