Fort Myers Beach is a small, seven mile long barrier island on the southwest coast of Florida.  Fort Myers Beach attracts snowbirds who enjoy the coast, water sports, and of course sunning on the beach.  A lot of snowbirds choose to bring their boat, or rent one, and stay along the intercostal waterway in order to have access to boat in the ocean. It also offers over 40 miles of canoe and kayak trails, which is perfect for those outdoor enthusiasts. The shelling is one of the best in Florida if you prefer something a little more laid back, and the beaches are perfect for spending the day in the sun. Fort Myers also has a great outdoor shopping and dining area with wonderful restaurants and bars.

Many snowbirds flock to Arizona during the harsh winters.  While many choose the Phoenix and Scottsdale areas, Tucson is best for those who want a more relaxed environment with less traffic and less people.  It's an absolutely beautiful area of Arizona offering world-class golf courses, hiking, biking, horseback riding, bird watching, shopping, and so much more.  There really is something for every snowbird to do here!

Port Aransas, Texas
Texas is very well known for its snowbird population because of its hot temperatures and low humidity.  Port Aransas is located in southeast Texas on Mustang Island and is just northwest of Corpus Christi.  A fisherman's paradise, Port Aransas is known as the "Fishing Capitol of the Texas" and offers anywhere from casual fishing trips, to serious anglers excursions.  Port Aransas has many marinas you can dock your boat at for your entire trip, and many of the accommodations have access to boat docks right on the property.  If fishing isn't your thing, Port Aransas has some fantastic beaches perfect for morning walks and afternoon sunbathing, golf courses, shopping and some great local nightlife!
