If it’s getting too cold for you up north this winter and you’ve had enough, it’s time to set your sights on a snowbird destination to ride out the colder months in comfort. But setting your sights on the southern states every winter doesn’t mean you always have to travel to the same destinations. These top three snowbird destinations are ones you may want to consider instead of your go-to spot this year.
Many snowbirds already know Arizona is an ideal place to keep warm and watch the winter pass with sunny skies. It’s also a great place for travelers who like to stay healthy and active year-round. Scottsdale is a hotspot for golfers, cyclers, hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts. The area’s slightly older population may also appeal to more mellow snowbird travelers.
Being a snowbird doesn’t mean you have to travel to a slow-paced destination for retirees. Austin is a place where culture and the outdoors collide. Snowbirds can kayak, mountain bike or hike in the day and turn to the city for world-renowned eateries and live music at night. Austin is a city that will make the cooler months of the year fly by with excitement.
Jekyll Island, Georgia
Many snowbirds assume Florida is the place to be on the East Coast in winter, but Georgia offers mellower crowds, ideal weather and picturesque coastal scenery. Head to Jekyll Island this year for peaceful beaches, picturesque marshland, adorable towns, fresh seafood and southern hospitality that will make you never want to leave. This charming Georgian island is the laid-back alternative to the traffic jams and tourists crowds of Florida’s top snowbird spots.
