Winter is the season for the Sun Belt. Stretching across the southern United States is where the snowbirds flock during the cold and snowy season. For those who are fortunate enough to enjoy a comfortable 70 degree, sunny winter, the time to head back north is approaching fast. As much as we’d all love to relax at the beach with our toes in the sand year-round, there’s still time to squeeze in one last getaway before making the move back north.
If you fall into the “snowbird” category, you won’t regret taking one last getaway for the season. While planning your trip, don’t miss out on the opportunity to save money on a hotel in the destination of your choice or on your way back north. We recommend packing your swimsuit and sunscreen to head to one of the five snowbird getaways.
