Top 5 Reasons to Book a Sandbridge Vacation This Fall
Did you find yourself reading this blog because you have spent the past few months stalking the Siebert Realty website hoping that the house you’ve got your eye on or that week in July will suddenly have an opening? Maybe you already have a reservation, but now you’re just DYING to come back. Whatever the case may be, I have a piece of advice that is going to change your life: Book a fall vacation in Sandbridge. Why? Keep Reading…
The Weather is [STILL] Gorgeous
Summer vacations have earned their reputations for warm weather and sunshine. After all, there’s nothing quite like baking in the sun on a 90 degree day in July. However, Virginia weather doesn’t follow the calendar, suddenly cutting off all sunshine and heat abruptly after Labor Day. In fact, it’s not uncommon to have a few unseasonably warm (yes, sometimes even 80 or 90 degrees) days in September and well into October. The pools in many of our houses are still open even past October and the beach, of course, is here to stay! Enjoy the sunshine and a nice breeze while you proudly exclaim that ‘fall is the new summer!’ from the comfort of your pool float (little drink umbrella is recommended, but not required).
No More Crowds
Many years of conditioning have told us that summer is vacation season. Schools are out, the sun is hot, and the ocean is calling folks from all over to enjoy its refreshing waters. This means that summertime is a very busy time for Sandbridge and Virginia Beach alike. Those who come in the summer certainly enjoy the sights and sounds of tourist season and the excitement of seeing the area at its peak. But if you prefer a slower, quieter pace of life, fall is when the locals return to their favorite bars and restaurants (no lines and waiting!) and you can finally find that perfect spot on the beach without having to dodge a sandcastle or water gun fight.
Seasonal Produce, Meat & Seafood
When you think of the beach, you probably don’t think about farms and fresh produce, but Sandbridge is home to many local farmers markets and farm stands where you can find locally grown, in-season fruits, vegetables, meats, and flowers to cook at your vacation home or take back home with you. All of your favorite fall treats can be enjoyed after a day at the beach. You’re probably going to want to move here. Oh, and don’t forget local seafood! Specifically, oysters! If you’re a seafood lover, the oysters alone are enough incentive to book a fall vacation in Sandbridge right now!
The Colors are Photo-Worthy
Sandbridge Beach is in no shortage of gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, filling the skies with colors reminiscent of watercolor paintings as the light dances across the water in a way that captivates us no matter how many times we’ve seen it before. As the days become shorter in the fall, these views grow increasingly more spellbinding, enticing us to inundate our social media followers with photo after photo, and probably provoking a bit of jealousy! For those traveling to Sandbridge in the later fall months, the leaves will begin to change, adding more opportunity for colorful backdrops to create social media envy!
So Many Great Local Events
There are always many fun things to see and do in Sandbridge and the surrounding areas, and as crowd regulations continue to decrease in Virginia, there are some really exciting events and concerts coming up! In September, the Rock N Roll Marathon and Neptune Festival will be happening at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront, as well as concerts from 311, Dierks Bentley, Chris Stapleton and more coming to nearby venues only a short drive from your beach house,
