Beachin' it post-summer! These are the best beach vacations to take in October
So, here's the deal -- fall weather is officially here and obviously we're extremely excited about. Sure, summer was fabulous, but there's nothing like booties, scarfs and leaves changing colors that get us in the mood for snuggles and hot cocoa. Can anything actually beat that?! But despite how much we absolutely ADORE fall, there is something huge that's missing -- the beach! We miss the sound of the waves, the smell of the sea and the feeling of warm sand between our toes.
But just because fall is here, does that mean we have to give up one of our favorite relaxing activities? Thankfully, we don't. We've got a few beach-focused destinations that are the perfect warm-climate escape when you want a little bit of a break from the cool weather. Lucky for us as well, hurricane season is largely over, so travel is free-game! Take a peek below at beach vacations you've got to take this October.
