You deserve to sit back, relax, and explore the various services that we offer and how they can make your life as a snowbird easier and stress-free.
The Long Relationship Between West Palm Beach and Snowbirds
Known for its tropical climate, stunning beaches, and vibrant downtown area, it is no wonder that so many people want to call West Palm “home”. Our little piece of paradise on Florida’s south-eastern coast has it all:
- Sparkling waterways surrounded by lush green landscapes and towering palm trees.
- Bustling streets lined with shops, restaurants, and cafes – picture Clematis Street’s nightlife, street performers, and outdoor festivals.
- Scenic parks and gardens such as the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens.
- An array of golf courses and shopping centers.
- Beaches boasting pristine sand and crystal-clear waters.
Thanks to all the above and its reputation for being a safe and welcoming city, West Palm Beach is a popular destination for “snowbirds“. Traditionally snowbirds were retirees who migrate south during winter months to avoid harsh conditions and enjoy warmer climates or longer daylight hours offered by southern states.
In recent years, though, the demographic of snowbirds has shifted. A growing number of younger individuals and families are embracing the snowbird lifestyle as they take advantage of the flexibility of remote work. Using their laptops and high-speed internet connections, these “digital nomads” or “workationers“. maintain their careers while seeking out immersive local experiences.
While many snowbirds travel in recreational vehicles to make the most of their adventures, some choose to make West Palm Beach their permanent residence. For those individuals, home maintenance services are essential to keep their property safe and well-maintained while they are away.
