First Time Snowbirds?
« on: July 07, 2015, 10:12:40 AM »
I know its a little early, but was wondering how many are going to be first time Snowbirds this coming winter?
This will be our 7th year in Florida since retiring!

I have been snowbirding from 2002-2006 and 2011 travelling all over the southern states; from 2012-2015 we were in Florida; this coming winter, we'll either go back to Florida for our last time or will go to 40 milles north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, depending on our devaluating CAN $; if it drops to $0.70 US, I'm gone to Mexico and their beautyfull warmer climat. ;)

Not a first timer but a snowbird - I lived in Florida for 30 years so not that interested in it as a snowbird site - staying out west. I found a perfect spot with great regular people with fun activities in Twentynine Palms CA - right outside Joshua Tree NP. Love it there and happy to return for another year...

Have fun

We're considering the Mobile, Alabama, area shores for next March. We might rent a condo for a month because the RV parks are too far from the Gulf for DW.

I'd kinda like to go to one of the Arizona RV/ParkModel/Trailer Parks where there are good swimming pools and lots of activities. DW  isn't so hot for living in a trailer or park model community.

And, finally, the Denver area is a great retirement community. So we may just stay home.
