Five Popular Snowbird Destinations

By Angela Tipton

Many northern folks enjoy migrating to warmer climates during long, dismal winters.  A popular term used for these residents is “snowbirds.”  They often nest for three months or more far from home, some place where shorts are worn year round and where golfers can keep swinging through the winter.  Here is LandCentral’s top five states to escape the frigid, winter blues.

  1. Florida – Florida is a favorite destination with more than 500,000 snowbirds taking up seasonal residence. Florida has so many things to see and do.  Levy County has some great state parks, preserves and trails. Goethe State Park and Cedar Key Scrub State Reserve are a treat for nature enthusiasts. Check out LandCentral’s Florida properties.
  2. Arizona – More than 400,000 snowbirds take advantage of the arid beauty of the Grand Canyon State. Mohave County has part of Grand Canyon National Park and Lake Mead Recreational Area. There are five climate zones in the state and uniquely, Mohave is the only county that sports all five. Check out our Arizona properties.
  3. New Mexico – The Land of Enchantment is an oasis of natural wonders waiting to be discovered. Its sunny, mild and dry climate is perfect for those with health issues.  New Mexico is rich in Native American culture and is perfect for history buffs. Recreation is huge too. Whether one enjoys fishing, water rafting or exploring dormant volcanoes, New Mexico is an adventure.  Check out our New Mexico properties.
  4. California – California is no stranger to incoming snowbirds. With amazing cities such as Desert Hot Springs and Indian Wells in Riverside County, it’s a great place for those who can afford to live anywhere. Mid-seventies temperatures almost year round provide a great incentive. Check out our California properties.
  5. Texas – Texas is another great winter escape option. Guadalupe Mountains National Park in Culberson County is a unique place to visit. It also is home to at least eight species of hummingbirds.  Check out our properties in Texas.
