Snowbirds have arrived and they aren’t birds at all. You don’t have to live in the Destin and Santa Rosa Beach area very long before you start hearing about snowbirds. Snowbirds are people who come to the Destin/30A area from parts of the U.S. to escape the harsh winters of their main home. While Destin is a crowded tourist area in the summer, the pace slows in the winter and the town caters to its winter guest from the North and many Canadians visitors. All it takes is one visit to realize that Destin is home to the most beautiful beaches and a great place to nest for the winter.
Our snowbird season in Destin runs from January through March and Destin vacation rentals are heavily discounted for winter guests.
5 Things For Snowbirds To Do
1.When snowbirds are in town, restaurants seem more crowded, especially during the earlier hours.Our winter guests are on a budget and the key to stretching a buck is taking advantage of two for one special and happy hours throughout town.
