Destin, FL (PRWEB) July 2, 2009
With an unprecedented bleak outlook, the summer travel industry braced for impact as the skies cleared and the economic storms persisted. Seascape Resort is located in Northwest Florida's Gulf Coast on the eastern edge of Destin, Florida in the prestigious Beaches of South Walton. Although not yet nationally recognized, this area of the United States has pristine white sand beaches made from Appalachian Quartz, a casual luxury atmosphere, designer outlet shopping and some of the best fishing in the world. With a year round population of less than 10,000 residents, the roads will swell to over 35,000 tourists during spring break and peak summer months. The typical tourist is between 35 and 55 and has a family of four making over $100,000 a year, which is one of the hardest hit demographics during the spiraling stock market and job market.
Yet the rooms are full at Seascape Resort and the phones are persistent. The American worker spends more time working than any workers in other industrialized nations and regardless of the value of the dollar, they are not sacrificing their week in the sand and the sun. Online bookings have surged 65% over last year and inquiries are up in general across the board. While business incentive trips continue to diminish with promise of return in a more lucrative economy, beach weddings have surged as father's still dole out thousands for precious daughters as reported by the resort group sales division. Wedding packages along with Destin Condos as an accommodation choice really increase the experience while being surprisingly light on the wallet.
Travelers who believe that hotels are a more budget conscious choice for their vacation should research further. While hotels often sleep only four occupants, beach condos can usually accommodate upwards of six to twelve guests at a fraction of the cost but with an abundance of amenities including full kitchens, multiple baths with garden tubs, full balconies and lots of extras. In particular, Seascape Resort offers guests an entire Resort Recreation package that includes free beach service, deeply discounted golf at the onsite championship course, discounted water sports, beach photography and more adding over $200 a day in additional value to the vacation.
With gasoline prices holding steady this year at reasonable rates, Travelers are packing the bags and the family vehicles and heading out of town last minute, but at a healthy pace. For best deals and choice of accommodations, management companies are highly recommending that travelers book at least three weeks in advance. Premium beach condo rentals are available at the brand new Ariel Dunes, Majestic Sun, Lakefront Villas, Boardwalk Villas and Golf Course Villas.
