According to media reports, retirees are opting for second vacation and rental homes in record numbers. For a number of years, The Gulf Coast has played host to "snowbirds" from the Midwest, but the variety of license plates seen from October-March is beginning to include tags from both the Northeast and the Mid-Atlantic. There is a flow of people with the weather.
When choosing a roost, retirees are looking for a pleasant climate, a variety of housing options, and a community of other retired people. Wintering in Southwest Florida provides retirees with plenty of opportunities to connect and engage with other seniors throughout their stay. If you are a retiree looking to connect with others and have some fun this winter, be sure to explore our area and stop in for a warm welcome at UUCFM.
Retirees and snowbirds are an important part of our congregation, their contributions toward the success of our mission are much appreciated. We value their involvement.
