If you think spending a few months in the sun every year is a great idea, but only for millionaires, it’s time to reconsider. We’d like to let you in on a little secret. More than a million Canadians aged 55 and up have learned the ins and outs of leading a snowbird lifestyle—and many of them don’t have big budgets. As you’ve probably heard, snowbird is a term used to describe a Canadian who regularly spends time in warm-weather spots in U.S. Sunbelt states like Florida, Arizona, Texas and California, as well as Mexico, for up to six months every year. Some drive down in campers or RVs while others rent condos or houses in different areas of the Sunbelt every year. Some even buy a home outright and return year after year.
