Make the Most of Your Vacation to St. George Island in October with These 3 Fall Activities 

1. Enjoy the Beautiful Weather Outdoors 

Say goodbye to the chilly temperatures in the Northern parts of the United States and migrate south to extend your summer. Fall is a great time to visit St. George Island because the weather on the Florida Panhandle is not too hot and not too cold. 

Weather on St. George Island can range from lows in the mid-60s to nearly 80 on some afternoons. The mild temperatures are perfect for enjoying fresh air and almost any outdoor activity or water sport! 

Dip your paddle into a cool stream while kayaking or canoeing at Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a beautiful day in October with great fishing spots, hiking trails, bird watching, and beaches. Plus, you can use our free beach gear! 

2. Discover Forgotten Coast History 

Up until Halloween, you can venture out and explore one of St. George Island’s oldest monuments, the Cape St. George Lighthouse! Get your steps in and climb to the top with your friends to experience the most spectacular view of the island! 

3. Celebrate Fall at a Forgotten Coast Oktoberfest or Fall Festival 

After running Tate’s Hell 5K at St. James Bay Resort at the beginning of October, wind down with a beer or several at their Oktoberfest Fall Festival that same day. There, you’ll have the opportunity to throw down some delicious German food or local seafood, dance to live music, or bid on local art! 

The fall fun doesn’t end that day. If you stay in town long enough, you can attend another Oktoberfest, the Apalach Oktoberfest at Oyster City Brewing Company in Apalachicola, FL!
