The end of summer doesn’t mean the end of adventures with family. In fact, Fall family travel can be just as adventurous and exciting as summer vacation. The key is to pick locations that will ensure fun and relaxation for everyone.

For me and my family, there is no better place to consider for a Fall trip than Gulf County Florida! Around every corner in GCFL there is an easy adventure. The big, wide outdoors of nature can surround us, the people are friendly, and best of all, we are almost guaranteed to see or learn something new. In GCFL can take a break from everyday life and stop “doing” and start “feeling” – more joy, more wonder, more love.

I love experiencing new moments of discovery with my family. Going to GCFL this season will likely be a new fall family travel tradition for us – that hopefully will be passed on to their children. Through the years, I’ve always taught my kids that family memories aren’t always made from big, fancy productions. Instead, connecting with each over the small, simple wonders of life.

In viewing the Gulf County Adventure Guide, two of the adventures I would love to do most as a family are: going a turtle treasure hunt for a chance to view baby sea turtle nestings. Gulf County boasts the highest-density nesting beaches in North Florida. We can work together with the Guide to help look for signs of nesting and participate in the process of protecting loggerhead turtles. I would also love for us to partake in one of their 3-hour shark fishing trips on their 60 ft, 44 passenger boat with Fish’N Xpress. Being totally safe for kids and including all equipment, bait and licenses, it would be a great way for the kids to explore water life.

There are many more activities we can do during our time at GCFL. We can go out bike riding on an afternoon adventure by the coast. Or take a family stroll and watch the Eagles fly by, or even horseback ride right along the beach and watch the sunset over the ocean. We can even go for a hike together and witness the local wildlife, such as deer, bobcats, squirrels, raccoons, Kingfishers, Great Horn Owl, and even otters!

With so much to do and explore, getting away to GCFL this fall would be the perfect way for every member of the family to destress and relax before the big Holiday rush. No doubt, a Fall family travel adventure is certainly something to consider for us!
