No matter how much you love the cold weather, winters in Western Canada can make anyone feel a little cooped up in their own home. The Southwestern U.S. offers mild winters, making it the ideal place to spend the harshest months from November and December until March. Choosing the snowbird lifestyle means experiencing the best of North America’s climate, with moderate year-round temperatures. It’s a great way to stay active and involved in communities throughout the year.

Many seniors prefer to return to the same place every winter to reconnect with friends they’ve made over the years or purchase a second property for winter. Whether you choose to drive an RV south for the winter or fly to your winter home, many Canadian snowbirds choose Arizona for their seasonal residence. Here are the top reasons seniors choose The Grand Canyon State.

Perfect winter climate

There’s no denying that Arizona can be brutal during the summer. Still, in the winter months, the low humidity combines with mild temperatures. Canadian snowbirds in Arizona spend the harshest months of the year enjoying fresh air and sun.

  • Highs during the day reach the mid-60s and drop to the mid-40s at night.
  • While December and January can be the rainy season, the average yearly precipitation is less than ten inches.
  • Enjoy more hours of daylight than in Canada, with the average sunset time around 6 pm.

You can escape the most grueling aspects of winter in Arizona.

Convenient location for U.S. travel

There’s a mild winter climate throughout the United States’s Southwest. However, Arizona is the most conveniently located for U.S. travel, whether you have an RV, enjoy road trips in a car, or plan on flying. Arizona borders California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico, which offer beautiful scenery for road trips, towns rich with culture and art, and exciting roadside activities and attractions.

Phoenix International Airport is a hub for American Airlines and a base for Southwest, ensuring low airfares for cities across the United States. Spend all winter in Arizona, or use it as a launching point for a season of travel.

Affordable luxury

Arizona offers beautiful properties and luxury RV park locations, with a below-average cost of living. Food and essentials are less expensive than in neighboring states, so your dollar goes further for the winter months.
