Expedia Lists Gulfport as Top Place for Snowbirds

By Rachel Hebert | January 5, 2018


It’s safe to say 2018 was ushered in by Jack Frost himself. Usually, we watch this happen to the Northeast while we sit comfortably warm in our Springtime attire. However, this year, the whole country is feeling the chill! This week, at least one place in each state recorded below freezing temperatures. Even tropical places like Tallahassee, Florida got their first snow in decades!

While we’ve seen our low temps dip below the freezing line, you can count on the sun returning our days to the bright warmness that we love. So yea, we’re the lucky ones. With palm trees and cold drinks, life in our little nook of the world can be pretty envy-evoking. Turns out, people are noticing.


The most recent “people” to notice are the fine folks at Expedia who know a thing or two about travel. Whether it’s booking a Caribbean resort or a European flight, Expedia is one of the most trusted experts in worldwide travel. That’s why if they mention you, it’s kind of a big deal. These frigid temps have warmer weather on everyone’s mind, so they just put out a list of the top 20 places for snowbirds to visit this winter. Proudly making this exclusive list is our nearby Gulf Coast neighbor, Gulfport.
