The Top 5 Places Snowbirds Visit in Arizona in Winter
Arizona is one of the most popular places for snowbirds during the dark, cold winter months. While an influx of snowbirds helps the state’s economy, there is no question that these visitors can get on the nerves of locals. We assume you know what a snowbird is, but just to be clear – the term refers to retirees who choose to make the Phoenix area home during the cold winter months in Canada, the Midwest, or the east, returning home after the weather warms. They buy (or rent) condos or apartments during the months of October through May. The top five places snowbirds choose to spend the winter in Arizona are:
Why Snowbirds Love Phoenix
Phoenix is at the top of the list for snowbirds, as the city and surrounding communities have everything they want – warmer weather, great restaurants, year-round golfing, and an NHL hockey team, basketball, and baseball. Generally, winter visitors are very welcome in Phoenix, as they keep the economy rolling, spending their retirement funds or savings on property, restaurants, theaters, and other venues. In the end, it can’t be denied that Phoenix is an ideal place to spend the winter if the weather at home is in the sub-zeroes!
Where Winter Visitors Stay
Many snowbirds rent a condo or apartment for the winter months, while others are hardcore RV-ers. Those that choose the carefree condo life flood into Scottsdale, Mesa, and Phoenix, making the winter market for longer-term winter leases very competitive. Whether in an RV in Quartzville or spending a comfortably warm winter season in Scottsdale, Mesa, or Phoenix, you can expect to be sharing the streets, roads and highways, as well as restaurants, theaters, and golf courses with a volume of happy retirees from the north and east, where frosty temperatures prevail.
Injured While Visiting Arizona?
Our winter visitor population is busy, visiting restaurants, driving on our streets and highways, and attending all types of events. Unfortunately, injuries can occur, and these incidents are never welcome. Some of the most common types of injuries sustained by snowbirds include:
- RV accidents
- Car accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
What Should a Winter Visitor Do When Injured?
One of the problems that can arise for snowbirds is being injured during the stay. As they are not full-time members of the community, whether in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, or other cities, it is more difficult to know where to turn after a car accident, slip-and-fall, or another unexpected disaster. Many snowbirds are from Canada where the laws on personal injury are significantly different than in Arizona and may not realize that personal injury claims can be filed to seek financial compensation – but you need a local personal injury attorney to manage the case for you.
