Why is it the things we love most cause time to fly by and the things we hate actually seem to draw out the minutes? Take summer for example. Three glorious months of long days that spread out before us, each minute a treasure we can’t wait to open. We soak in the sun’s rays, we swim in our pools, and we luxuriate in every lick of an ice cream cone that is begin to melt and stream down our hands. These lazy days often speed by and before we know it, it is time to pack away our flip flops, drag our sweaters out of the depths of our closets, and turn our attention to pumpkin spice instead of double chocolate chip! In Florida, however, summer lasts a little longer, bringing residents and visitors into a secondary season, one that is still warm enough to swim but cool enough not feel as if every minute is a sweaty one. And even though the palm trees swaying on the beaches and the smell of sunscreen is wafting through the air, because the calendar says autumn, the crowds that swarm our beaches are lessened, and our beautiful Tropical Escape 30A homes become more available. Fall is not tourist season on 30A but for those hoping for at least another week of responsibility free summer, this guide to our fall 30A vacation houses will bring you a taste of eternal summer!

Summer’s the Word
Yes, during this story on Florida Autumn, we will bring you many examples of how summer rarely ends on 30A! Our 30A vacation homes, cottages, and condos reflect this magic, offering spaces filled with light and warmth. Colorful rugs on the floors of living rooms may mimic the colorful flowers blooming all around and soft sofas placed in front of state-of-the-art television encourage lethargy and sloth-like behavior! Watch the World of Series on screens that appear crystal clear and bid farewell to the boys of summer, enjoying this one last peek of the season. Many of our properties offer walls of windows that are punctuated with oversized sliding doors begging to be opened, to let the outside in.
Enjoy all your at home meals on the tables on the back porch, soaking in as many minutes of summery bliss as you can. Barbecues entice guests to don their Kiss the Cook aprons and wield the mighty spatula, flipping burgers, steaks, or fresh caught fish like the almost pros they are! Our fully equipped kitchens offer wonderful places to create home cooked meals, saving you money and giving you the opportunity to share the recipes of your family with the next generation, but if you spend these waning days of our summer/fall using the grills, no ones feelings will be hurt. The dining room tables of our autumn escapes are still going to be the perfect spot to play board games without fake money flying off into the wind, build puzzles without unexpected showers turning the pieces into soggy bits of gray cardboard, or to enjoy adventure planning sessions with your favorite traveling companions, no matter what the season!
At night, bedrooms become havens of peace, harbingers of happy dreams, spaces where sleep comes easily. Offering beds topped with soft linens, televisions in nearly every room, and upon occasion, a child themed escape that your littles will be excited to call their own, ensuring that when morning arrives (far too soon, as always!) every guest from the smallest to the tallest will wake up feeling rested and ready to explore all that 30A has to offer.
The Communities of 30A
As you drive along the most scenic highway in America, the communities you come upon will appear to be idyllic and peaceful and yes, they are everything you expect! Our Tropical Escape 30A vacation houses will be found in nearly every New Urbanism community, and the amenities associated with these villages or towns will enhance the wonder of your fall getaway to Florida. Resort pools invite guests to spend long hours soaking in the sun, frolicking in their blue waters, and watching their kiddos play pool games that would be impossible to do back home. Restaurants specific to each community provide the opportunity to stick close to home, and as the nights are still warm (But not TOO warm) free concerts are often taking place on the green spaces and in the parks of the community you have chosen to call home for these seven blissful days! Shopping at cute boutique, enjoying another ice cream cone knowing that you won’t have to eat it as quickly in these slightly cooler days, and just walking everywhere as you explore streets lined with charming homes, businesses, and restaurants.
