Though the colder months bring beautiful changing seasons, oftentimes, they leave retirees dreaming of AZ mobile home vacations and warm, sunny days by the pool.

But once you’ve made the decision to leave those icy mornings behind you in search of brighter Arizona afternoons, just how do you go about making the tropical transition?

Because here at Palm Gardens, we know that the final destination is so much more exciting than the planning it takes to get there, we’ve come up with three helpful tips to help you travel like a seasoned snowbird!

1. Make your reservation: The first step is to make sure that your wonderful winter get-away home is ready and waiting for you the moment you arrive! Visit our website, browse our beautiful rentals, find the perfect AZ mobile home for you, and make your winter reservation!

2.Plan and pack:  Once you’ve figured out your travel plans and rental dates, it’s time to prepare for your winter break. Make a list of everything you need to take care of before you leave and check off each task one by one. Sort out your travel finances, reorder prescriptions, and begin packing the essentials long before you leave!

3. Prepare your home: A final (and crucial) step before heading out to your new winter get away is to prepare your home for your season-long absence. If you have any pets or plants, be sure to make arrangements in advance, and if you live alone, consider asking a neighbor to check in every now and then while you’re enjoying your stay in sunny Arizona.

Whether you’re coming out to our beautiful state for the snowbird season or deciding to make the big move, our easy travel tips will help you trade your winter coat for a smile and a suntan!
