Welcome to The Village Square, the series that answers common RVing questions with tips, tricks, and camping hacks from RVillage community members just like you.
Did you know that a large group of migratory birds begin their trek to areas like Florida and Arizona as early as October? Some of them even drive. That’s right, snowbird season is upon us, and if your rig isn’t in storage, that means it’s probably joining the flock to warmer climates. While Florida is the top spot for this sun-seeking crowd, other snowbirds opt for less crowded camping destinations to take shelter from the winter chill.
From Tennessee to California, here’s where you can find snowbirding RVillagers this winter.
