1. No Crowds
It’s all yours – the beach is lovely, warm and uncrowded. Perfect for morning walks, evening walks and anything in between. I’m always surprised at how warm the water can still be in the Fall. My kids have even been in it at Thanksgiving!
2. Great Shells
I’m amazed at the different shells we find on the coast. A few Septembers ago I was in Galveston with some friends and we found the entire beach was littered with quarter sized shells – I think they were disk clams (Elegant Dosinia). Shelling on St Joe’s Island is an adventure anytime of the year. One contributor to TripAdvisor said they found fantastic shells in November.
3. Great Temperature
The average highs and lows in degrees fahrenheit for October are:
Galveston 79.7 and 68.4.
Port Aransas 82 and 71.
Very. Nearly. Perfect.
4. Great Fishing
Port Aransas, TX Offshore Charters & Bay Fishing Guides says that Fall is a great time to fish – still warm, not crowded and with more flexibility in booking trips. In searching for charters/guides for family trips, I’ve also seen that some rates are less in the Fall.
5. Fun Local Activities Happen in the Fall
6. Bonus: Just Because You Can
We don’t really ever need a reason to head to the coast – Just grab friends and family and hit the road!
Good times ahead!
