Fall is the Best of All in Seaside

September 28, 2014 by SoWal Staff

With value-added deals from the Homeowner's Collection, and a host of special events taking place all across Northwest Florida, a visit to Seaside will tickle you pink this fall.

When temperatures cool, traffic eases and crowds on the beach thin, autumn has arrived on the Emerald Coast. Homeowner’s Collection, a rental management company located in Northwest Florida formed by Seaside homeowners, is celebrating the “colors” of fall 2014 with fabulous deals.

Whether you are looking to reconnect with gal pals, a getaway with the guys, or a trip for the entire family, fall is the best time of year to enjoy the crystal-clear Emerald water and sugar-white sand beaches of South Walton.

Gather the girls for a girlfriend getaway to Seaside and get a front row seat to see firsthand the fashions, trends and colors to hit the catwalk as established and emerging designers reveal their latest collections at South Walton Fashion Week Oct. 6–12.


Hey fellas, bring your best buds to Seaside and let the games begin. Guests of Homeowner's Collection receive preferred pricing at the Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club on 30A and a 15 percent off coupon for the Vue on 30A restaurant.

Gather your guy gang to cheer on your favorite SEC Team “colors” while enjoying cocktails and watching the games on the TV screens at Bud and Alley’s Waterfront Restaurant and Roof Top Bar. While you are here, roll out the barrel at the annual Baytowne Wharf Beer Festival Oct. 17–18, and catch up with friends while sampling 200 imported and domestic craft beers and ales.

If you are a foodie, the 30A Throw Down on Oct. 17–19 is a must do for you. This three-day gastronome celebration is a competition that honors local restaurant chefs for their culinary excellence. Enjoy chef cook offs, collaborative multi-course dinners, after-dinner parties and a gourmet Sunday brunch.

Love supporting local arts and culture? Don’t miss the debut of a new romp of a play called “A Beach Home Companion” staged by Seaside REP Theatre Oct. 2–24.

Seaside’s Halloweener Derby Oct. 25 has gone to the dogs … in a good way. Come cheer on Seaside’s own dachshund, Bud, headlining the races. Or enter your own “weiner dog” into the race, costume contest or both. Proceeds from this event benefit The Emerald Coast Shelter House pet project.


Celebrate the changing of the season at Seaside’s 24th annual Seeing Red Wine Festival Nov. 6–9. Make a weekend out of sipping, swirling and sampling hundreds of domestic and international wines throughout lovely Seaside. The four days begin with a Vintner Dinner at Bud & Alley’s on Thursday at 7 p.m., followed by the Al Fresco Reserve Tasting on Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday brings the Grand Tasting from 1 to 4 p.m. Great Southern Café hosts a Champagne tasting on Sunday at 11 a.m. followed by the Walkabout & Auction Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m.

Homeowner’s Collection has an exclusive Seeing Red Wine Festival Package offer that is a tremendous value. In addition to enjoying the lowest rates of the season, the longer you stay, the more value you earn in the form of free Seeing Red Grand Tasting tickets. Stay two nights or more in a one-bedroom cottage and receive one complimentary ticket (a $145 value) to the Grand Tasting. Stay two nights or more in a two-bedroom or larger cottage and receive two complimentary tickets ($290 value) to the Grand Tasting. Seeing Red will sell out. Book your Seaside stay early so you don’t miss out on this must-do 30A event.
