Miami is one of the warmest places in the USA to live, and many people have chosen to retire there, or to live there permanently. There are many reasons why Miami is so popular, and here are the top 5 things that separate Miami from other places in the USA when it’s January.

1. Warm Weather Allows For Outdoor Events

In Miami the sun is almost always shining. It’s warm throughout the year, and you can easily get rays of sunshine when you walk outside during the daylight hours, even in January. When many other places are freezing cold, Miami is warm. Many people like to have outdoor events, but cold weather doesn’t permit it in certain regions. Miami is a perfect location for outdoor parties, get-togethers, or events.

2. Open Amusement Parks And Water Parks

In regions where the weather is cold, the amusement parks close when the wintertime rolls around. Miami is a great place to find amusement parks that are open throughout the year, because the climate is always warm. While other regions in the United States have to close their water parks due to cold weather, Miami water parks will be open year-round, because of the warm climate. In fact, you may want to go and cool off due to the warm weather.

3. Sit By The Pool With Cold Drinks

Many places will typically only have their pools open from about June until September, but you’ll see pools open year round in Miami. You never have to worry about cooling off at any time of the year in this region. Many will usually have hot cocoa, or warm drinks during January. In Miami, cold drinks are welcomed, and even craved during the January month, due to the warm and humid climate. So drink up, and enjoy the warm weather that Miami has to offer.

4. Open Beaches And Warm Ocean Water

The United States is surrounded on three sides by beaches and ocean, but many wouldn’t dare to venture out onto the beach when it gets cold in certain areas. This is something you never have to worry about Miami, because it’s always warm, and the beaches are always open. No need to worry about cold ocean waters during January when you’re in Miami. The water is always warm, and you can swim as you like.

5. The Grass Is Green And Plants Flourish

Warm weather, as well as rain, will help to keep your grass green. Unfortunately, many regions will have their grass die during the winter, but not in Miami. You can easily see the green grass growing everywhere. Don’t worry about taking in your plants during January when you live in Miami, they can still flourish just fine, and grow without a problem.

Three Ways to Tell the Difference Between a Snowbird and a Native South Floridian

Categories:

South Florida is truly a great place to be. The weather, the amenities, the people, and the culture are all very conducive to a very relaxing and uplifting lifestyle.

Since its conception, South Florida has also been a place where many individuals come to escape the colder temperatures of their native home for a few months. Native South Floridians call these individuals Snowbirds. Snowbirds are fun to have around, and tourism is a large player in Miami’s economy. But there are great differences between people who live in Florida, and people who only come to visit for a couple of weeks or months out of the year.

Let’s take a look at the differences between these two groups of individuals:

1. One of the main things that can distinguish a local from a snowbird is the southern accent. This is something that can be spotted right away. Most locals from South Florida have at least some type of a southern accent. However, most of the snowbirds coming down to stay for a few months are from the north. Some may even have Canadian accents. If you are looking for a quick and easy way to tell these two groups apart, the accent could be a sure fire giveaway.

2. Another way that you can spot a snowbird in Florida is when they show up driving a large RV. Many snowbirds come down to Southwest Florida as the final destination on a road trip that sees them driving their big, frequently fancy RVs. This is a great way for them to stay in South Florida without spending too much on lodging, but it can occasionally make for even more clogged roads and uneasy parking in the winter.

3. A basic understanding of the local area is a quick way to tell a snowbird apart from a local as well. There are some things about the local culture that are well understood by South Florida locals, more so than tourists with a cursory knowledge of the area. It will be easy to see the differences in snowbirds and locals when it comes to these local cultural issues.

When it comes down to it, snowbirds are just tourists that stay for a longer period of time. It is always going to be easy to spot a tourist in your local area, but that doesn’t mean that it is a bad thing. Tourists bring in extra money to the community and help the local economy thrive.
