I am so sick of following land yachts and out of state vehicles piloted by some anonymous gray head down the road. I want to go to a restaurant and not have to wait 45 minutes to be seated. And all those Canadians! Don't get me started on that one. I have never seen anything like this year's invasion, but they must be getting ready to leave soon. So when are they going home? How much longer do I have to wait to have my city and state back?

Mid-April is usually their limit. Once it creeps past 85 they're over it.

I have to say dealing with their drivers is a mess but I walk quite a bit to places from my house and seeing the snowbirds walking around and enjoying the weather is always nice. Plus they always say hello and are very friendly.

I barely notice them and I certainly don't get worked up about them. I will say, my in-laws left last week so two of them are out of the area.

I'd say end of March, early April like they said above. Pretty soon now it will be the laid back environment your craving. Warm and empty.
I enjoy my snowbird neighbors though, I'm fortunate, they are tidy and sweethearts. I live so far out now I don't notice traffic issues, but, I do remember it from being in town.

Yeah, I'd much rather have a city full of mellon heads in huge pick up trucks or cherry bomb mufflered Hondas. Oh and sign me up to pay ever increasing property and other taxes to pay for k-12 baby sitting for all the breeders.

Snow birds are actually perfect guests. They come to town, spend money and leave. Not to mention the property owners who also pay taxes yet have no kids in the system.

This is not a discussion about whether they are good or bad or about your taxes or your biases. . So keep your opinions to yourself or start another thread. It is about when to expect the snowbirds start to leave in noticeable numbers.

Actually, we pay about 25% more in taxes for living here about 1/3 of the year. We don't even get a Thank You.

My other home is on a large beautiful lake in northern MN. People from around the country come and visit. There are some lines at restaurants, slower traffic, etc. But in the end, I enjoy them.

ETL (Estimated Time of Leaving) is the same as last year. And the year before, and the year before. Mid March to Mid April.

I wanted to be the first to say Thank you for bringing your money to our state and supporting our economy even though you only live here for a couple months. I for one am happy to have you.
