Newman-Dailey Resort Properties invites families to make the most of their fall school break with a fun and educational Destin vacation.

In addition, parents will enjoy the off-season rental rates and Newman-Dailey’s special promotions, offering an additional 15 to 20 percent off Destin vacation rentals.
“Families are accustomed to planning a spring break beach getaway, but often don’t consider a fall beach getaway” said Jeanne Dailey, owner of Newman-Dailey Resort Properties. “The fall is the most beautiful time of year along the coast. Now that many schools have added a fall break, it is a great opportunity to enjoy a relaxing beach getaway while keeping learning at the forefront."
The Emerald Coast features a breadth of fun and educational experiences at local aquariums, nature centers and state parks. For starters, Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park is a fun, educational activity. Dolphins, sea lions, harbor seals, sharks, stingrays, and sea turtles are but a few of the hosts that entertain and educate families during their visit. As an added bonus, during the month of October, Gulfarium is featuring two special offers on animal encounters, including the Ocean Odyssey and VIP Trainer Encounter.
The area is home to four beachfront state parks, including Deer Lake State Park, Grayton Beach State Park, Topsail Hill State Preserve and Henderson Beach State Park. These natural areas offer many opportunities for families to experience and learn about Northwest Florida’s coastal environments. Topsail Hill State Preserve, one of the most pristine state parks in the state, offers a wide variety of natural resources including 3.2 miles of secluded trails, majestic dunes over 25 feet tall and three rare coastal dune lakes. Regular ranger programs take families on tours of the park, and feature a variety of topics from the Eastern Gray Squirrel to the Florida Black Bear.
