Why Snowbirds love Destin Beach, Fl

by Destin Beach Vacation Rentals

What’s not to love about Destin in the winter season? The locals will tell you that winter is one of the best times to visit because the crowds die down and the weather is still gorgeous.

Snowbirding in Destin Flordia


Snowbirds who live in places where winters are harsh and full of snow, like to get a break from the shoveling and ice scraping and just enjoy the Florida sunshine and warmer weather.  

If you’ve been thinking about trading in that white snow, for some white sand on the Emerald Coast, here are a few reasons why we think you’d love the snowbird experience in Destin Beach, FL.

 Reasons to Snowbird in Destin this Winter

Smaller Crowds

Traffic and beach crowds can be overwhelming during the Spring and Summer months.  Destin Snowbirds like to enjoy life, relax, and maybe get in a round of golf or two. In the winter months, the traffic is bearable and the beaches are almost deserted. This makes the perfect time for sand between your toes during an afternoon stroll in South Walton or an adventure in the car.

Easy to Meet People

Since most Destin vacation rentals rent monthly for snowbirds during the winter months, it’s not unusual to make new friends that you can enjoy a good lunch with, or a morning coffee on your balcony. The best part is that snowbirds tend to visit the same property year after year, so you’re liable to see those same friends every year that you visit Destin Beach.


Plenty to Do

There are so many things to do for snowbirds in Destin Beach. Many of the condominiums and communities have events planned just for snowbirds in the Winter months. This gives you a chance to make more new friends, and have a little fun. From bingo to water aerobics, there’s never a dull moment in Destin.


Excellent Local Food

No matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ll find it in Destin Beach.  Destin has some of the best restaurants for fresh seafood, gulf view dining, and snowbird discounts make for great meals! Invite those new (or old) friends to try your favorite local spot, or try a new restaurant altogether. No matter where you eat, you won’t be disappointed. 


Friendly Destin Community

We love and appreciate our snowbirds, and you’d be hard pressed to find a local who doesn’t feel the same way. Snowbirds help our economy, take care of our properties in the Winter, and are some of the friendliest guests that visit the Emerald Coast. Who wouldn’t be happy getting out of the cold and coming to a gorgeous beach for a couple of months? 

Romantic Dating Scene

Most snowbirds come here as a couple, but there are single snowbirds who visit Destin Beach as well. It’s not unheard of to find a love interest while watching the sunset on our Emerald Coast beaches. Even if it’s just for a season, finding someone who enjoys the same things you do can make your stay even better!

 Destin Beach Golfing

This is a big one! Many of our snowbirds love to golf, and the Destin Beach area has some of the most beautiful courses you’ve ever seen. It’s easy to get a good tee time, since everything in the area is less crowded, and you can enjoy snowbird discounts as well. 


 Destin Beach Weather

 We’ve already established that sand is better than snow, but the temperature is really amazing in the Winter. There will be chilly days, but instead of packing snow gear, a light jacket would do.
