A snowbird is a term often associated with people who move from the higher latitudes and colder climates of the northern United States and Canada and migrate southward in winter to warmer locales such as Florida, California, Hawaii, Arizona, Texas, or elsewhere along the Sun Belt of the southern and southwestern United States, Mexico, and areas of the Caribbean.

Snowbirds are typically retirees who wish to avoid the snow and cold temperatures of northern winter, but maintain ties with family and friends by staying there the rest of the year. In recent years, younger people with jobs tied to seasonal tourists, often migrate southward following the tourist season to southern resorts. Some are also business owners who have a second home in a warmer location or whose business can be easily moved from place to place, such as flea market and swap meet vendors.[1] Some are people who suffer from seasonal affective disorder who wish to enjoy the longer daylight hours in the southern latitudes in winter. Some snowbirds bring their homes with them, as campers (mounted on bus or truck frames) or as boats following the east coast Intracoastal waterway. In the past snowbirds were frequently wealthy persons with independent incomes who maintained several seasonal residences and shifted residence with the seasons to avail themselves of the best time to be at each location; this custom has declined considerably due to changing patterns of taxation and the relative ease of long-distance travel.[citation needed]
A significant portion of the snowbird community is made up of recreational vehicle users (RVers). Many own a motorhome for the sole purpose of traveling south in the winter. Often they go to the same location every year and consider the other RVers that do the same a "second family". Many RV parks label themselves "snowbird friendly" and get the majority of their income from the influx of RVing snowbirds.[2] There are places like Quartzsite, Arizona, that have been labeled "white cities" because from a bird's-eye view all the motorhomes cover the landscape in white and then in the summer are gone. While historically Florida has been the number one RV snowbird location, other southern U.S. states are experiencing a boom from snowbirds enjoying the southern climate for example.
Legal status[edit]
Many of these "snowbirds" also use their vacation time to declare permanent residency in low- or no-tax income tax states (where the tax bases are augmented by high tourism taxes), and claim lower non-resident income taxes in their home states. Canadian snowbirds usually retain residency in Canada in order to retain health benefits. Due to the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act there are now additional implications for Canadian snowbirds in the United States.[3]

This summer was our second summer staying in Mane Sail at Carolina Bay condos through Victory Beach Vacations. What a beautiful, spacious place with a very laid back atmosphere. The owners of the other condos are very pleasant to interact with. We choose to stay there for the convenience and the beauty of the place. The pool is very nice and is a great place to hang out when the beach has been too much. I highly recommend staying won't be disappointed!

We have stayed at Casablanca in Kure Beach for 4 years! We love Kure Beach and the house. The area is wonderful for families - there is just enough to do to keep everyone entertained without being too loud, busy or crowded. Casablanca is a great house with lots of King beds to comfortably accommodate couples. We have 7 adults (3 married couples) when we stay and there is plenty of space and plenty of bathrooms for everyone. The ocean front view is fantastic and the direct beach access is perfect! The house is well appointed and the kitchen well stocked. Victory Beach Vacations has always been easy to work with and quick to respond the few times we have had needs at the house. Working with Victory has always been a very positive experience. Highly recommend them, the Kure Beach and Carolina Beach area and Casablanca if a 4 bedroom ocean-front house is on your list!

We just returned from our family "week at the beach". Kure is the best beach for family time and Victory Beach Vacations is the best rental house management service. This is our third year leasing from them and they are great to work with. They keep you updated all during the year as to your lease. They are great at check-in and very willing to do anything they can to make your stay a great one. I would highly recommend Victory Beach Vacations.

This was our third year in "Sand Castle" and the vacation was fantastic! Perfect location and perfect weather and especially with the pool for the kids in the morning and the beach in the afternoon. The house was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed. Can't wait until next year!!

We have been staying at Carolina Beach over 15 years, and have a few places we return to over and over, often using rent by owner experiences. By comparison, we have also had experiences with Victory Beach Vacations and have now decided that they are where we are going to stay! They are, by far, the best people to work with and have a worry-free vacation! They connect with you not just as a customer, but as a person, and truly care about your plans and your experience. I love that they offer payment plans, and check in with you regularly. Beyond that, everything you need to take care of can be done through them. We even had two small things that were out of order at our most recent stay, and they had a maintenance department that brought a brand new coffee maker and wine glass within hours (important things! lol). I would also say that one of our stressors dealing with renting by owners is the amount of things needing to be done before leaving. We are renters who take pride in leaving a place better than we found it, but there is often much unnecessary pressure to complete a full house deep clean before we leave. Victory Beach has this all built in and we were reminded of how much less stress was happening the day we had to leave. As for the condo, Sands V 3b, it is our new favorite place. We walked in to an immaculate space, with gorgeous updates and a view that rivals any on the beach. The space had a fantastic vibe and we fell into a calm, relaxed state much more quickly. The deck had terrific furniture and we spent most of our evenings with meals at the high top table watching the waves. The pool was the largest of any Sands units we have had the pleasure of vacationing with. We've already booked our weeks for next year. Thanks, Victory Beach, for knowing and remembering who we are, caring about our stay, and the flexibility in making vacations accessible through your many options. A+++++!

This was our third year spending our summer vacation at Kure Beach, NC. Each year we've used Victory Beach Vacations (VBV) and stayed at the "Little House on the Beach". We chose going through VBV because they had a good selection of pet friendly ocean front home rentals that are large enough for our growing three generation family. The house was ready ahead of time... VBV staff called us while we were on the road to let us know the house was ready. I like that personal touch. Check-in and check-out were both efficient. I like their early reservation policy and have taken advantage of it the last two years and have already early-reserved our stay for summer vacation 2017.

For the last three years my family has booked our summer vacation through Victory Beach Vacations, and the people who work there have provided A+ accommodations for us. Three years ago we stayed at Kure Beach, and the last two years we stayed in Sands V 3B at Carolina Beach. Each year we have arrived to a clean condo waiting for us to begin enjoying our week's stay. This year the family who stayed before us had evidently stored seafood in the freezer because there was a strong oder of fish when we opened the freezer door. I called and spoke with someone at Victory, and within an hour a lady was knocking on our door to clean the freezer. She was there for about 45 minutes and was most attentive to my concern about the smell. We enjoy staying at Carolina Beach and being in close proximity to Wilmington, the boardwalk at Carolina Beach, and Fort Fisher, the aquarium, and the ferry at Kure Beach. Enjoy your stay at the beach and know that the friendly, attentive office staff at Victory will do all they can to make your stay with them be all you want it to be.

This is the fourth year I've rented a Kure Beach oceanfront home from Victory Beach Vacations. Check-in and out are a breeze. The house is clean and ready, sometimes earlier than promised. I have never been disappointed and will always check with them first for a rental property.
