We all love a splashing summer day at the beach - but here at Colt's, we think fall beach days are equally amazing! Crisp air, cool sand and plenty of room to spread out and unwind make fall a great time to visit your local go-to beach spot, especially when you have Colt's BBQ in tow. Take a look below as we share fun tips for a memorable fall beach day.
Pick the perfect picnic spot
With so many beautiful beaches to choose from in the area, you will want to select the slice of shoreline that is best for your and your family! Craving a quieter, more relaxing escape? Much of Ormond Beach offers the scenic digs you're looking for. Or, head to a local dog-friendly spot like Smyrna Dunes Park for some fun with your furry family member, too.
Lay on the layers... sunscreen included
While Florida fall is still easy to enjoy with shorts and sandals, you may find yourself reaching for a lighter sweater or cap to stay warm! Opt for layers so that you can easily add or remove clothing as Florida's famously fickle temperatures rise and fall throughout the day. And of course, don't forget the most important layer: sunscreen!
Bring BBQ for effortless snacking
The right food can make or break a beach day, so reach for fall BBQ flavors that soothe and satisfy! Bring along a sturdy disposable trash bag that won't blow away in the breeze, and dig into favorites such as...
"Carve" sandy pumpkins
Fall at the beach is a uniquely Florida phenomenon. Celebrate your beautiful surroundings (and, maybe, make your out-of-state family and friends jealous) by snapping seasonal photos at the beach! You can even "carve" pumpkins out of sand for a festive activity the whole family will enjoy. If you do, share your creation on social media (we'd love to see it!), or hold a contest with your fellow carvers to see who was most creative.
We hope you enjoy your next beach day to the fullest! Bring along Colt's for flavorful fuel and have some fun.
