12th Annual Beaches to Woodlands Tour Features Packed Schedule

The 12th annual Beaches to Woodlands Tour Schedule is packed with events ranging from a new country music festival at Navarre Beach to fall-weather-friendly pumpkin patches and mazes in Milton, 5k runs, theatre, art, history and cultural events and more over a six-week span this fall.

“Traditionally the tour has been held ‘weekends in October’ but some of our big agritourism events always spread from late September into early November,” said Karen Harrell, the tour’s coordinator for the past seven years. “When the weather gets cooler people are ready to get outdoors and back to nature and we serve up many opportunities to do just that.”

 

 

About the Tour

The self-guided tour, sponsored by the Santa Rosa County Tourist Development Council, encompasses more than three dozen diverse events staged in October each year. Events range from "fun on the farm" activities and eco-education to historical lectures and re-enactments to festivals celebrating the season, active events ranging from beach volleyball, ziplining through nature to 5k runs and walks to cycling; arts and culture that celebrate native artisans; marine life education for all ages, fishing, snorkeling and everyone's favorite - the annual migration of the Monarch butterflies.

"The Beaches to Woodlands Tour has become synonymous with Fall for many along the Gulf Coast," said sixth-year tour coordinator Karen Harrell. "Each year we add new events that are grown organically through engaged community members."
