Snowbird Season 2014 in Full Swing!

The Resorts of Pelican Beach, one of central Destin's premier resort properties, has announced that the annual "Snowbird" season is in full swing with many winter rental guests in house again this year. Each year, retirees and vacationers, affectionately known as "Snowbirds" migrate from the northern United States and Canada to spend up to three months in one of the resort's fully furnished and professionally managed beachfront, beach view or gulf view condominiums.

 

Winter monthly rentals are available beginning November 1 through the end of March and have become very popular for retirees wishing to avoid the cold winter weather in places like Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Canada. Many "snowbirds" call the Emerald Coast home for one to three months every year. These winter renters take advantage of the great year-round weather, restaurants, golf, shopping, and entertainment while relaxing in a fully-furnished condominium that is convenient to everything the area has to offer.

 

The Resorts of Pelican Beach offers an activity program to guests throughout the snowbird season. In fact, Pelican Beach's extensive program has been a big factor for so many snowbirds when choosing a place to stay. Each week, the resort staff organizes more than 30 activities and events geared specifically to winter guests. Pelican Beach guests can choose from activities, such as watercolor classes, dance lessons, exercise/fitness classes, golf outings, tennis, card games, beach walks, and travel to regional casinos and special events, such as Mardi Gras.

 

Winter activities are great ways for winter guests to meet and make new friends and feel right at home. "Many of our winter renters come back year after year and request to stay in the same property since it has become a comfortable second home for some of them. We look forward every year to the annual 'snowbird' migration and welcome all of them with our version of Florida hospitality," said Herb Profitt, General Manager of Pelican Beach Management, Inc, the resort's onsite rental management company. "Our guests know that they are getting a quality vacation rental at a great price along with outstanding amenities and activities. A majority of them rebook for the following year before they even finish their winter stay. For those people wishing to avoid the winter weather and come to Destin, we still have properties available!
