Why Homebuyers Love The Snowbird Lifestyle
Over the years, the seasonal resident lifestyle has become more and more appealing to more and more individuals. The idea of spending each half of their year in a different cultural paradise, where museums and galleries regularly display pioneering works of art, where chefs are constantly engineering the newest dishes, and an active and engaging lifestyle awaits is a large factor in convincing homebuyers to partake in the lifestyle.
Over the years, the seasonal resident lifestyle has become more and more appealing to more and more individuals. The idea of spending each half of their year in a different cultural paradise, where museums and galleries regularly display pioneering works of art, where chefs are constantly engineering the newest dishes, and an active and engaging lifestyle awaits is a large factor in convincing homebuyers to partake in the lifestyle. For areas such as Palm Beach Gardens in Florida, the mild weather come winter is an especially large draw for these seasonal residents. When they select a country club to call home, there are a few things they can expect to enjoy:

Health and Wellness


Seasonal residents decide to stick with living where the weather is at its best: they enjoy picturesque summers in the north and glorious winters in South Florida. When at a club, they have health and fitness classes right in their backyard, plus fitness trainers and coaches to help them improve their golf and tennis game. With the year-round fair-weather lifestyle offered in South Florida, it’s easy to stay outdoors and remain fit as well.

Active Social Life

When residents choose to live at a country club, they have a full social calendar full of activities for them to enjoy, to keep them entertained, to learn new things, and to practice things that they enjoy. Whatever their preference – golf, art, food – event planners and activity coordinators work to ensure that it’s incorporated into the Club’s ever changing, consistently packed event calendar. Just by attending a few round robin tennis clinics or an on-site wine tasting, members will quickly get to know each other, forming fast and true friendships.

Clubs Within A Club

Outside of the events and amenities that country clubs host, there are even more ways for members to enjoy themselves. Many members are inspired enough to create their own club that focuses on a certain element, such as a book club or a culture club. These clubs quickly draw in residents who are eager to meet members with similar interests, or want to learn more about the interest in the first place. The result? Members develop a great way to make fast friends and enjoy practicing a hobby.

Tax Benefits

Florida is one of seven states that do not have income tax for its residents. This is one of the reasons there’s been a large influx of New Yorkers moving to Florida. High-net-worth individuals and families from various high-tax states, such as New York, New Jersey and California, are continuously finding themselves choosing Florida instead. According to Crain’s New York Business, under the recent NY tax laws, a New Yorker who makes $10 million a year and owns a $10 million home could save over $1 million in taxes by relocating to Florida. The addition of a homestead exemption also encourages residents to select Florida as their primary residence. Smart seasonal residents can take advantage of these factors to really cash in.

Travel Made Easy

Residents of Palm Beach Gardens are near to three international airports so that they can always get where they need to go, and fast. This enables the world to be opened up to residents. Furthermore, it’s not just flying that’s made easier for the residents of Palm Beach Gardens – with I-95 right outside of the town, getting to other Florida cities by car is a breeze. Members can be roughly 20 minutes from West Palm Beach, and under an hour from Fort Lauderdale. It makes traveling whether for fun, family or work a breeze.

It’s apparent that country clubs accent a seasonal resident lifestyle in a way that few others can. With a wide range of activities, amenities, events, and programs ranging from tennis to cultural events, these country clubs give seasonal residents access to a life with more opportunities than ever before. One Club in Palm Beach Gardens can offer residents an opportunity to enjoy even more that club living has to offer.
