Seven Snowbird Cities You Should Visit This Winter!!

Are you a snow bird? If you answered yes, you’re probably packing your bags and getting ready to make your yearly migration down south for the winter. Warm weather locations like Arizona and Florida have long been coveted destinations for snow-birds looking for a refuge from Jack Frost’s fury. Whether you plan on staying for four months or four days, these toasty locations are worth a winter visit:

PuntaGorda_R.jpg
Punta Gorda, Florida | Just north of Fort Myers on the Port Charlotte Harbor you’ll find Punta Gorda. This relatively small Gulf Coast city features the sought-after warm weather the Sunshine State is known for (plus the beaches!), as well as the history or a centuries-old port town. Walk through Fishermans’s Village or along the Harbor walk and marvel at Punta Gorda’s intricately restored historic district – complete with brick roads, street lamps and tin-roofed buildings.
Average Winter Temperature:
75-85 F

Mérida_R.jpg
Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico | If you’re looking to leave the States on your winter migration, fly to the largest Yucatán Peninsula city, Mérida. Many expats have already made this Yucatán Gulf Coast destination their home, and it’s easy to see why: a walk through the city will reveal Mérida’s ancient Mayan culture and colonial background through its historic buildings. Delicious cochinita pibil (marinated pork) and papadzules (egg tacos with pumpkin seed and tomato sauce) are just a few of the Yucatecan foods snow birds can readily dine on here.
Average Winter Temperature: 75-85 F

MorroBay_R.jpg
Morro Bay, California | Part of a cluster of San Luis Obispo County waterfront cities, Morro Bay is most recognized by its landmark Morro Rock – a more than 500-foot-tall volcanic landform in the harbor. Snow birds flock to this ocean side village, which dates back to the 1500s, for its laid back atmosphere, sprawling beaches and fresh seafood, including albacore tuna and oysters.
Average Winter Temperature: 55-65 F

BoulderCity_R.jpg
Boulder City, Nevada | Those looking for a desert retreat close to both natural and manmade beauty will find Boulder City to be a perfect winter home base. The town was originally built for Hoover Dam workers to live in while they were building the dam. The city slowly evolved into a retirement city for those seeking a dry-climate locale that was both affordable and offered plenty of leisure activities. Near Lake Mead, it’s just 20 miles southeast of Las Vegas and a morning’s drive to the Grand Canyon.
Average Winter Temperature: 70-80 F

Alamogordo_R.jpg
Alamogordo, New Mexico | Tourists have been passing through the city gates of Alamogordo since White Sands National Monument opened in the 1930s. The Sonoran Desert city has become a haven for snow birds looking for miles of white sand and mountains without the salty ocean air. Those arriving in late September can watch Technicolor hot air balloons rise over the Tularosa Basin during the White Sands Balloon Invitational.
Average Winter Temperature: 55-65 F

Tucson_R.jpg
Tucson, Arizona | Most people looking to escape the northern snow settle on Arizona as their winter retreat. If you’re thinking The Grand Canyon State, ditch the traffic in congested Phoenix and head to Tucson. While it is the second most populated Arizona city behind Phoenix, Tucson offers a more natural setting for snow birds who appreciate outdoor activities. Take a look at old Tucson in the downtown Presidio District, or venture to one of five mountain ranges surrounding the city, including the gorgeous Santa Catalina Mountains.
Average Winter Temperature: 65-75 F

SanCarlos_R.jpg
San Carlos, Guaymas, Mexico | In the Port City of Guaymas you’ll find San Carlos, a beachfront community known for its picturesque panoramas of the Sea of Cortez, as well as its exceptionally warm waters. Snow birds who favor watersports can take advantage of unforgettable diving spots in the shallow bays along the coastline. It’s not uncommon for divers to enjoy underwater visibility of more than 100 feet.
Average Winter Temperature: 75-85 F
