As life seems to move along faster and faster we begin to understand that time is precious. We also come to know that the most important blessings in our lives are often the ones we take the most for granted. Thanksgiving is a unique holiday in America because it causes us to step out of our manic rush to reflect upon the blessings of our lives in order to acknowledge them and give thanks. The most important blessings in life are beloved family members and close friends. Our happiest memories and most meaningful life events center around them which is why at Thanksgiving we gather together to express gratitude for their presence.
Many vacationers choose the Thanksgiving holiday as a special time to visit the Emerald Coast with family and friends. The autumn weather in this part of the tropics equates to perfection. Dry delightful days feature cobalt blue skies adorned with pillowy cotton-like clouds. The mild climate invigorates the spirit since temperatures range in the lovely 70’s during the day and perfect “sweater weather” 50’s at night. The gulf still retains enough of its summertime warmth for folk to take a brisk swim on warm sunny days. During this time of year, there is little traffic congestion compared to the spring thru summer season and restaurants are not as crowded. This wonderful time of the year also inspires a grand finale for traditional family beach reunions, lovely walks on the sugary shoreline to catch the heavenly sunsets that occur right over the gulf, and the enjoyment of fun times at Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin or Harborwalk Village at the Destin Marina.
Another wonderful perk is that vacation rentals in Destin & South Walton are at their lowest rates of the year - so you may experience paradise with your own blessed beloved family at a great value. Right now Ocean Reef Resorts still has 10 fantastic beachfront vacation rentals available as a beautiful backdrop for the creation of new Thanksgiving memories as you celebrate the blessings in your life. Here they are:
