How to Save on a Summer Vacation along the Gulf Coast


You’ve been dreaming of a summer vacation on the beautiful white beaches of the Gulf Coast. How can you make this dream come true on a budget? Here’s some tips on how to vacation on Florida’s Gulf Coast beaches without breaking the bank. 

Tip #1
Check out smaller vacation rental companies instead of chain hotels and resorts. For example: you can book a room at a well-known hotel chain with no beach access sleeping 4 at approximately 365 square feet $1388 a week before taxes and fees. Garrett Realty Services Inc. offers a beach side villa just steps away from the Gulf of Mexico with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths not to mention a full kitchen, comfortably sleeping six for less. Check out Garrett Realty’s specials page for even greater savings! 

Tip #2
Choose a vacation date according to specials. For instance: Edgewater Beach in Destin, Florida offers specials for those traveling early in summer. This beautiful condo is right on the beach with a fully equipped kitchen, full-size washer and dryer, private balconies overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, tropical gardens and ocean front pools.  

Tip #3
Calculate all expenses when deciding where to stay. Do you have a pet you will need to board during your vacation? Average rate per night is $40. That’s $280 for the week unless you stay at a pet friendly beach villa. Beachside Inn offers pet friendly accommodations just steps away from the emerald green waters of Destin, Florida. Not to mention Beachside Inn is home to one of the best restaurants in Destin, Florida; Camille’s at Crystal Beach! 

Tip #4
Invite family and friends for a summer vacation. Places such as Shoreline Towers offers beach front condos that sleep 8 to 10 comfortably. Invite friends and family to share the condo and cut down on the price. With full kitchens you can cook many meals in your ocean front condo. Stack the fridge with the perfect beach snacks. Blend up specialty drinks to enjoy while relaxing at the beach. Taking food and beverage in your own hands saves a lot! 

Tip #5
It’s all about the perks. Who doesn’t love them! A big part of vacation is engaging in activities you wouldn’t normally be able to do at home. The kids want to go on a Pirate Cruise, Dad wants to play golf, Mom would love a relaxing nature cruise and the whole family is looking forward to the premier waterpark, Waterville USA. Book a vacation rental through Perdido Key Resort Management for amenities galore. For every day you stay “Perdido Keys to Fun Program” will give one free pass to each activity including: Pirate Cruises, Golf, Fishing Charters, Dolphin Cruises and more! 

The perfect summer holiday doesn’t have to come with a hefty price. Follow these five tips for summer fun on a budget along the Gulf Coast!
