If you are in Atlanta your most economical destination would be Florida, how about a drive out to Key West? i hear its paradise.

But you also mentioned that you want something low cost.

The Keys and north Florida are completely different regions of Florida, but one thing they have in common is a mellow atmosphere as well as low cost opportunities. Storm statistics might be in your favor if you arrive in the middle of October.

About the Carolinas, you can check out their hurricane statistics.
North
South
Northeast Florida has been hit by dozens of tropical storms over the years (two this summer!), but the last *direct* true hurricane hit was Dora, in 1964. The wettest months are June through September. link

If you want the beach plus no worries about hurricanes, you can go to Oregon or California, but the trip might be pricier (and the water not as warm.)

Don't forget that the days are very short in October, so you might want to consider the night life of your destinationl

you can't predict the weather of course, but depending, when in Oct, the hurricane season probably will hve run itself down if we don't have a bad year and it doesn't appear we are going to have one. The season does run from June 1st to the end of Nov officially; the worst is aug to early Oct. That being said, other than the gulf side of Mexico it isn't easy, in Oct to find a fun place near the beach with decent weather and inexpensive. There are some nice and not expensive All Inclusives in Mexico as well as Dominican Republic but you are still talking hurricanes. The same with a cruise, fun, not as expensive as many might think, and Oct is a good time.

How about a the west coast if beaches are what you want? Of course many of the beach ares, even in Oct will still be pricey.

We went to an all-inclusive resort at Riviera Mayo in October two years ago. It was pretty cheap and the weather was WONDERFUL! We're not usually resort goers, but this was for my son's wedding, and I've got to say, I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
