Snowbirds in the USA

 


Snowbirds USA is your Go to Place to Go Places.

Retirees flock to warmer temperatures to escape the cold winter months in northern regions. These retirees are affectionately referred to as “Snowbirds”. After retiring, snowbirds look forward to escaping another winter of snow and ice.  The US has many locations for the northerners to choose for a winter home. Most retirees will travel to different locations the first few years after retirement to check out the possibilities available.  After experiencing different locations in the south, they often return to the same location year after year. Number one on the list of “must haves” for Snowbirds is weather.  Warm and sunny is a priority.  Other considerations are good shopping, excellent medical facilities and a wide variety of restaurants. Snowbirds, also, consider the people when choosing a retirement community.  They will return to that southern location where they feel most comfortable & welcome by friends and neighbors.

Not only are there decisions to be made as to where in the country, but retirees will have choices as to whether they want to live in a house, an RV, or a condo/townhouse.

Snowbirds in the USA will give you information about wintering in the southern states of the United States. Their winters are filled with bingo, dances, craft shows, open jam sessions, golf and many other activities held inside retirement communities. It is like summer camp for Seniors. Most of these activities are open to the public. This website will help you plan your weekly activities which are all located in one spot. Right here. SnowbirdsUSA keeps the schedules/activities updated, so you won’t miss a thing.

The Rio Grande Valley has many claims to fame.  The Mission, Texas area is known as Home of the Ruby Red Grapefruit.  The valley is lends to some of the best birdwatching in the world.  Many worry about running into problems associated with being close to the border, but those problems do not involve the law abiding citizen with any more frequency then other parts of the U.S. The weather is ideal and the Gulf coast and South Padre Island areas are breathtaking.

 

 

 

 

Many retirees from upper states and Canada head to warmer climate locations from Nov. to April.  These folks often have second homes in the southern states, either RV’s, park models or single family dwellings.  These homes are usually located in a 55+ communities or neighborhoods which are often gated.  These communities are busy with activities, such as sports, crafts, card games, dancing, exercises, and lots more.  Staying active is an important component of staying healthy.  Each 55+ community has activities which are held for their residents only, but most have many events that are open to the public, too.  Thanks to Bowser and Blue for the video above.
