For many years, people have been traveling to warm climates to escape the cold damp winters where they live. Winter is wet, cold, and generally right in the middle of flu season, making it a great time for anyone with pre-existing health concerns to be in a warmer climate.

Many people migrate seasonally; some people who live in cold or damp climates travel to warm climates in the winter for health reasons and some travel just to escape the inconvenience that the winter weather brings. While some of these people work in positions that allow them to travel and work from anywhere, most of these snowbirds are retired.

Many people from cooler climates choose to come to Mesa in the winter. While Mesa can get over 115F in the summer time, it is a moderate 80F in the winter. Mesa also only has about 8 inches of rainfall all year long with about 300 sunny days annually.

When snowbirds come to Mesa there are many options for accommodation. Some may find that a home swap works well if they can find someone who'd like to experience a snowy winter for a change. Some people may find that renting a mobile home or buying into a timeshare works well for them. Most snowbirds seem to enjoy RVing best, spending a little extra time driving down to Arizona and visiting friends on the way or even driving down with other couples.

Once you get to Mesa for your warm weather winter there is a lot of exciting stuff to occupy your time with. There are lots of areas for walking or if you're adventurous you can go on trail rides. There is Broadway Palm Dinner theatre, Mesa Arts Centre, Mesa Ampitheatre, Mesa Symphony, and the Shakespeare Company for those who enjoy the arts.

If you enjoy learning new things, the Arizona Museum of Natural History and the Mesa Historical Museum may be more your speed. For those who like golf there is the Riverview and Dobson Ranch Golf Courses. Mesa is also home to a variety of cigar bars and casinos. Mesa also has a fabulous variety of restaurants, ranging from southwest to Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Italian, German, Polish cuisines.

If you're tired of spending your winters in the cold and the damp with a box of tissues, try instead coming down to Mesa and spending it in our warm winter sunshine; your health may just thank you for it.
