Blue Mountain Beach is beautiful any time of the year and there is no reason to be bored when vacationing there. With a little looking, you will find activities for the whole family to enjoy beyond the simple pleasures of soaking up sunshine alongside the waves. So whether you are thinking about visiting the area this fall or already have your trip planned, escape from your hotel room or Blue Mountain Beach condo rental and find what you can do throughout the area!
Catch a Play
The Rep theater puts on live performances, including a calendar of free outdoor classic children’s plays part of the year. Indoor live theater productions are available, as well. Check their calendar for details.
Bike a Trail
The Timpochee Trail is a 19-mile long, paved pathway through neighboring beach communities. You can rent a bike to take in the views that you can’t get from a car on the highway, or just wander down the path on foot. The trail takes you past and connects you with beach access points, state parks, sand dune lakes, as well as many of the beautiful beach communities along the way. Be on the lookout for post-worthy photo locations to share your adventures with your social networks!
Visit a Park
Eden Gardens State Park features natural beauty and free outdoor movies in the fall. The price of the park admission fee gets you in to enjoy the grounds and a ticket to a classic movie on the big screen outdoors.
Cold Springs Swimming
About an hour drive north, Morrison Springs is one of the most popular diving spots in the state. The park is famous for its natural springs pool, which is 250 feet in diameter and fed by a natural spring that supplies it with some 50 million gallons of crystal clear cold fresh water every day.
Check Out a Concert
Local communities in the area of Blue Mountain Beach host free outdoor concerts from the Spring through the fall every year. Bring a picnic and enjoy the sights of Florida’s beautiful beaches as the backdrop to live music.
Explore a Forest
Point Washington State Forest features 15,400 acres of Florida forest ecosystem, accessible by a network of sandy trails. You can explore freely on your own by hiking or with a four-wheel drive vehicle.
The soft white sand along the beaches surrounding Blue Mountain Beach is perfect for crafting custom sand sculptures. Spark a competition among friends or other beachgoers for the most original creation, best sand architecture, and the biggest sandcastle creation. Be sure to knock down your creation at the end of the day so it won’t interfere with sea turtles on their way back into the Gulf waters.
