Most unexpected snowbird destinations

Published on January 20th, 2022

If you’re a Facebook user, odds are you’ve experienced seeing ads on your news feed that reflect your recent browser history. Crazy, huh?

Even crazier to consider the Curmudgeon’s Observation in Scuttlebutt #5977: “My wife asked me why I spoke so softly in the house. I explained how I was afraid Mark Zuckerberg was listening. She laughed. I laughed. Alexa laughed. Siri laughed.”

And now, as Scuttlebutt reports on the Southernmost Regatta, and used ‘snowbird’ in one of the headlines, an email arrived to headquarters with the Subject line: Key West ranks best unknown Snowbird destination.

Who is laughing now? Read on:
While Florida has been a common retreat for those opting to avoid cold weather and travel south for the winter (snowbirds), it has also caused many areas of the state to become very crowded.

Based on this, Rocket Homes® conducted a new study to discover the Most Unexpected Snowbird Destinations. Key West ranked #1 best unknown destination for snowbirds in Florida.

Specific Ranking Factors:
• Key West ranks #1 for comfortable temperatures.
• 62% of days in winter are sunny.
• With the Florida Keys at the southernmost point, the avg. temperature doesn’t drop below 65.6 degrees.
Of course, sailors also know Key West for its tropical winds, best sunsets, and lively nightlife. Will the next study be Greatest Sailing Destinations? Standing by to receive the email at HQ.
