Although the weather here in Palm Beach County is picture perfect, sunny and 75 degrees, other parts of the United States do not enjoy the same climate. Approximately a half million people journey to South Florida for the winter, avoiding the ice, snow and bitter cold.

Millions of people flock to South Florida for vacation and spring break.  Year round inhabitants of the Sunshine State face many challenges when the visitors and seasonal residents arrive. 

Some tips for residents to manage snowbird season:

Be Tolerant. Anticipate slower traffic, the out of state driver is not familiar with the highways and streets as residents.  Give yourself a few extra minutes to get where you are going.

Be Cognizant. The out of state driver may not know speed limits or lane restrictions.  Keep full attention focused on the drivers around you and remember texting in Florida is a violation that may warrant a ticket.

Be Proactive. Anticipate hazards on the roadway.  Actively watch for unexpected difficulty, including adverse weather and avoid collisions.   

South Florida is irresistible in the winter and year round.  Avoid being stuck in the grip of winter’s icy grip and consider buying a home or second home in South Florida.
