Activities Galore for Snowbirds

Each year thousands of northern residents, known a snowbird, flock to the Gulf coast of Florida and Alabama to enjoy moderate temperatures and avoid the snow!

The weather in the area gets cold enough to notice a change in season but stays at an average 50 degrees or warmer throughout the winter months. This temperate climate makes this area the ultimate vacation destination for Snowbirds. If you are traveling from the north and staying for a few months, there is plenty to do!

Each community in Florida has local restaurants to try and plenty of activities and events. You can visit our calendar to see some of the upcoming events.

Another popular option for Snowbirds is to join a Snowbirds Club. Each community offers different opportunities to socialize with other active adults. In Destin, you can join the Snowbirds Club hosted by the Destin Community Center. Joining the club opens up opportunities to participate in activities. Members can enjoy pickle ball, live music and social gatherings at local restaurants. It’s a great way for Snowbirds to interact with each other while experiencing the local areas. When you visit the Snowbirds Club website, you’ll see stories and pictures of Snowbirds that meet up with friends from years past. These clubs can help foster long-term, cross-country relationships. They provide an opportunity to find friends to spend time with on your travels back to the area.
