4 Reasons to Visit St. George Island in September
The Weather Is Gorgeous
While temperatures begin to plummet across the North, the weather remains warm and sunny on St. George Island, FL. With highs in the upper 80s and lows in the low 70s, you can count on beautiful weather during your September visit! One of the best parts of visiting this time of year is that you’ll feel as though you have the whole beach to yourself. While the forgotten coast isn’t crazy busy even in our peak summer season, it’s still nice to enjoy even fewer crowds in the off-season.
The Oysters Are Delicious
Oysters are everywhere in autumn, whether fried, charbroiled, grilled, or slurped right from their half-shells. Since the water is reaching cooler temps this time of year, oysters are guaranteed to be fatter and even more full of flavor right now. These mollusks are much more than just delicious—they improve the Gulf Coast ecosystem by acting as natural filters for the water!
