Calling all Snowbirds. Take your car South!

Fall is officially beginning, and that can only mean one thing: winter is approaching. We all know what that looks like – icy roads, driving snow, freezing temperatures. While some people relish the cold, some of us only have visions of terrifying news casts predicting nearly impossible driving conditions as we instantly recall the feeling of bone chilling cold.

Think about Boston last year! With 108 inches of snow in the 2014-2015 year, it was a record-breaking winter. The city had the most snow on record for all time. (Most of it came in about a 3 month period!) If this doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, you might be a snowbird. Snowbirds are usually folks close to or of retirement age who leave their homes in colder climates each fall around October and November, and spend the summer in a warm spot.

It’s all about that Snowbird Destination.

Now is the time to live life to the fullest! You can just about name the features you want and you’ll find it in a snowbird destination. Many popular states include Arizona, Florida, Texas, New Mexico, and California. What are you looking for? Many people are searching for a place with great access to fishing, someone else is searching for endless golf courses, and another may want a patio home with an ocean breeze. There are seemingly limitless options — and now’s the time to live the way you want!


According to the U.S. News outlet, the Best Places for Snowbirds to Retire in the United States for the year 2015 were the following:

Key West, Florida

Miami, Florida

Phoenix, Arizona

Fort Myers, Florida

Brownsville, Texas

Orlando, Florida

Tampa, Florida

Corpus Christi, Texas

Tucson, Arizona

Las Vegas, Nevada


All of these locations feature average temperatures in the 70s nearly year-round, as well as a fairly dry climate. Oh, and plenty of sunshine because that’s what you’re after!

Planning where you’re going to stay is one of the first steps to a fantastic winter spent in a warm place down south (or west!). On the hunt for a beachside condo? Maybe you’d prefer an apartment in a quiet retirement community with built-in activities close by. Some snowbirds even rent a house for the season. Do you have an RV but don’t want to drive it to your Snowbird destination yourself?  Crestline can have it there for you when you arrive!

Chances are, no matter your choice of home, you’ll need to be able to get around. Driving from Boston or New York to Florida or Arizona is a long trip. In addition to the wear and tear on your vehicle it could take days to travel hundreds of miles. Renting a car for months can be expensive, and taking public transportation is hardly convenient. Why not ship your car and drive what’s familiar to you?

Crestline Auto Transport has been serving a loyal snowbird customer base for years. You can trust us to get your car safely to your choice of destination, in the same condition it was in when you left. We can also ship it back to your home when the snowbird season is over! Any route, any date. No worries about making unnecessary stops, we transport vehicles from door to door.
