5 Reasons You Need to be a Florida Snowbird

Are you heading to Florida from your Northern home? We can’t wait to have you! But before you come, here are some things you’ll need to have this winter in Florida. 
1. Stay Warm
In Florida, the winter temperatures are usually in the 70’s, and sometimes 80’s. This means it’s always a beach day here. That means you can’t forget your flip flops and beach gear. After all, this is the Sunshine State!
2. Bye, Snow!
Here’s how your northern friend’s day will go: Wake up, walk on cold floor, get ready, scrape snow off car, wait for car to heat up, be cold, stay cold, go to sleep. Here’s how your day will go: Wake up, enjoy coffee on your porch, watch your friend’s post about snow from Facebook, go to the pool, hang out with friends, sit on the porch some more, go to sleep. 
3. Fast Friends
In Florida, we’re a melting pot of different cultures and people from different states. If you’re not “from Florida” you’ll fit right in! You’ll love getting to your home or community and hanging out with friends old and new. Once you’ve been coming here for a few years, each winter season will feel like a homecoming. 
4. Thriving Community
So we talked about the great friends and the great weather, but what about the great communities? In Florida, we have some of the nations best 55+ communities! Not only will you love the friends you’ll meet, but you’ll love the resort-style amenities at some Florida 55+ communities. In some of our Newby Management communities this includes resort-style swimming pools and newly completed community centers! It’s not your grandma’s retirement community. These are built with active adults like you in mind! 
5. Palm Trees & Ocean Breeze

No matter where you are in the north, there are no beaches like Florida beaches. Plus, even on our warm days, there’s still a beautiful ocean breeze. The salt water, sunshine and warm weather can make you happy on your saddest days. Plus, the Sunshine State has a laid back and fun culture that will make you want to call it home year-round! Be sure to check out a Florida sunset or sunrise on the beach. We hear there’s nothing else like them.
