Why fall beach vacations rock!

Think summer is the ONLY time to visit the beach?

Think again!

Don’t feel left out if you couldn’t make it out this past summer. Fall beach vacations can be a great option for many reasons.

Read on to see why you might even consider fall-time to be the optimal time for your next beach outing.

 

Family On Beach Vacation Running Through Dunes

 

  1. Less crowds

The summer is the peak time for the beach, and consequently, you’ll have to share the beach and attractions with throngs of other vacationers. During the fall, you’ll have less competition for beach space and restaurant seating.

  1. Lower rates

You’ll usually find lower rates for rentals in the fall than in the summer, so you’ll be able to use the extra funds for more souvenirs or fancier restaurants, or you can simply pocket the savings for next time.

  1. Fishing

Related to the last reason, the fishing charter rates might also be cheaper in the fall. Also, with potentially less clients, they might be able to provide even more 1-on-1 attention. Check with the local charters for more details.

  1. Delightful weather

Now this one might be up for debate, but for those who enjoy cooler climates, the fall time can be hard to beat. Imagine blissfully strolling down the beach without fear of scorching heat. (That said, be sure to bring layers of clothing so you can dress up or down as the need arises.)

  1. Fall-only events

There are some events that only happen during the fall months, so check the local calendars to see what interesting things can be seen or done during those times.

5 ways to decorate your Halloween pumpkin, beach-style

Think you need to be at home to enjoy Halloween? Think again!

You can certainly have a great time at the beach while still getting in the spirit (yes, pun intended) of All Hallow’s Eve.

The following are 5 ways you can jazz up that pumpkin to celebrate the spookiest time of the year at the beach.

  1. Decorate your pumpkins with a beach theme

Give your pumpkins a beachy vibe by painting them white, brown, and/or blue. Decorate with sand dollars and assorted shells.

  1. Try different cutouts

Instead of a face, try carving shapes befitting the setting. Some ideas are a boat, an anchor, a palm tree, a starfish, a seahorse, a fish, stylized waves, shells, etc. You’re only limited by your imagination… and your carving skills.

  1. Cool off your drinks

Instead of making a jack-o’-lantern, fashion a drink cooler out of your pumpkin. Fill with ice and keep your favorite drinks nice and cool.

  1. Make a substitution

Forego the pumpkin and use a pineapple instead. Imagine a menacing jack-o’-lantern’s face carved on tropical fruit. Your family and friends will get a kick out of that.

  1. Use sand

Of course, you can get creative with what’s already all around you at the beach. Craft some spook-tastic jack-o’-lanterns in the sand.

5 simple beach safety tips

Ready to get on the beach for some well-deserved relaxation and fun?

Here are some easy tips to follow to ensure you stay safe while you’re enjoying yourself at the beautiful beaches at Grand Isle, LA.

5 simple beach safety tips

1. Protect yourself against the sun

Everyone likes to be out in the sun. However, don’t overdo it. Remember to use sunscreen, and reapply as directed by the sunscreen. Find some shade if you’re feeling uneasy after extended exposure to the sun and heat.

2. Drink lots of fluids

Being out in the heat can lead to dehydration. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids. The more water the better. Plan beforehand and have an appropriate number of drinks ready.

3. Don’t swim alone

Avoid swimming alone, especially if you want to venture outward a bit. If kids are present, be sure there’s always adult supervision.

4. Shade your eyes

Don’t leave your sunglasses behind. Wear shades to protect your eyes from the sun and glare.

5. Avoid alcohol

Alcohol can dehydrate you, as well as impair your judgment. Avoid alcohol or keep to a reasonable amount.

5 tips for having an enjoyable vacation

Ready to embark on your vacation and enjoy the beautiful beaches and incredible fishing at Grand Isle, LA?

 

Beach vacation at Grand IsleHere are 5 easy tips to keep in mind to ensure you have a fabulous time!

 

1. Try not to plan so much

Having a schedule that’s packed with one activity after another may make the vacation seem less like a vacation. To be as relaxed as possible, keep the itinerary loose. There’s bound to be something you can find if you need an extra activity to fill up some extra time.

2. Do some research

Do enough research BEFORE the vacation so you’re not spending too much time weighing restaurant options and scrambling to find schedules DURING the actual vacation.

3. Make a list or two

To ensure you’ve packed everything you need, jot down a list and check each items off as you pack them.
You can also make other lists, such as a roster of restaurants, events, etc. that you want to experience. Don’t forget a list people you need to by souvenirs for!

4. Have your rental address and information in your phone

Go ahead and put all the necessary information about your rental in your phone, such as the address and phone numbers.

5. Go ahead and take the photo!

When in doubt, go ahead and take that photo! You may not have another chance. Of course, if you’re visiting Grand Isle, Lousiana, we’re certain you’ll want to return at some point!

“If you’re thinking about or have already decided to come to Grand Isle, why not give us a ring at RE/MAX Coastal Realty,” invites David Kedzierski, owner and realtor.”

Attention Birdwatchers! Do you have your calendars marked for the Grand Isle Migratory Bird Celebration?

Are you a birdwatcher? Love nature?

The Grand Isle Migratory Bird Celebration is coming up next month!

 

Bird

An annual celebration of nature

Grand Isle, Lousiana is the home of a beautiful nature celebration every Spring. This event, sponsored by the Grand Isle Sanctuary Group, was started in 1998 as part of an effort to protect and preserve undeveloped chenier habitats, or live oak ridges. Sadly, only 10% of the habitats that once were on Grand Isle remain.

This family-friendly event coincides with the peak migration of birds as they journey across the Gulf of Mexico.

A birdwatcher’s paradise

For a birdwatcher, Grand Isle in April may very well be the ultimate paradise.

The beaches are beautiful! But don’t just take our word for it. Yahoo! concurs, as the venerable website has named Grand Isle as one of the top beaches and island getaways.

As for the Grand Isle Migratory Bird Celebration, there’s plenty to see and do.

Go on a birdwatching tour and learn about island history along the way. Revel in bird crafts and artwork from passionate artisans. Participate in bird games. Buy bird-centric merchandise and win sweet prizes.

“I want to attend the Grand Isle Migratory Bird Celebration! When is it?”

The 2017 event will be held on April 21-23.

“The Migratory Bird Celebration is a wonderful event for the whole family,” says David Kedzierski, owner of RE/MAX Coastal Realty. “It brings together many bird fans to celebrate nature and support the important task of conservancy of undeveloped habitat.

“We’d be honored to help you find the perfect place to stay on Grand Isle. Give us a call today or check out the listings at our websites.”
