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."
