Destin Snowbirds Have Arrived!
Posted by Karrie Rose on Thursday, November 20th, 2014 at 7:51am.
It happens every year like clockwork. As soon as the temperature begins to cool, our friends in the north begin their seasonal migration in search of warmer climates. Over the next two or three months, the Destin population will increase with the arrival of the northern snowbirds. Their presence provides a huge boost to the economy after the end of the summer tourist season, and generally brings a new burst of life to the city.
These repeat visitors look forward to stepping back into their "Florida life," getting reacquainted with old friends, eating at their favorite restaurants and engaging in warm weather activities. It sure beats shovelling snow.
The Destin Snowbird Club is a mainstay for many returning visitors. They offer a busy calendar of events, friendship and give folks a general sense of belonging. They've already begun their annual sign-up for day trips, clubs and much needed volunteers to run the various activities.
