Reasons for Becoming a Snowbird

Retirees enjoying a nice drive in their own car

Many retirees make the decision to become a snowbird in the winter to get out of the cold temperatures in their home base. Many people living up in the north will travel down south for the winter months to avoid the frigid temperatures, snowstorms, and other headaches that winter can give you.

Here are the reasons people become snowbirds, and why you should consider it as well:

Less Stress and Less Work

You may be getting older and shoveling or snow-blowing your driveway is getting to be a little annoying and tiresome for you. To avoid this task, you can make the trip down to the south to places like Florida, Arizona, California, etc. This will give you a lengthy “vacation,” where you can escape the stress of clearing your driveway, paying higher heating bills, and staying warm. When traveling down to the southern states, you won’t have to shovel your driveway to get the mail in the cold.

You Don’t Have to Buy a Home

Becoming a snowbird doesn’t mean you have to purchase a second home. Many places like Arizona, where many northerners look to vacation for the winter have plenty of rental opportunities. Don’t worry about having to buy a second place because you won’t have to.

Enjoy the Winter for Real

Lay on the beach, relax on the porch, and take a late-night walk around your neighborhood in the dead of winter. But, where? You’re definitely not doing these things in up in Canada in the winter season. Another reason for you to consider becoming a snowbird is because you’ll actually enjoy the winter season in a warmer climate.

What are you worried about?

A major question to some people wanting to vacation down in the south for the winter is what will I do about driving and getting around?

Some people consider renting a car, but this can be another expense that you would rather not have to pay for when you own a car.
