Snowbirds are Headed SOUTH for the Winter

October 20, 2017

By Darren Arcaro

The 2017 season at Sherkston Shores is coming to an end but that doesn’t mean that your vacation lifestyle needs to.

Snowbirds trying to escape the harsh Canadian winter can travel south to stay at one of Sherkston’s sister resorts, such as Sun-n-Fun, located in Sarasota Florida.

More than a million Canadians aged 55 and up have chosen the snowbird lifestyle. Whether you buy a vacation home, rent a cottage or bring your own RV, travelling south for six months has its advantages. Or even if you’re just looking for the shorter getaway with the family to get away from the snow, we have you covered with over 100 resorts in the United States.

Similar to Sherkston Shores, all Sun RV Resorts offer residents and campers daily activities and entertainment, including pickleball, lawn bowling leagues, creative crafts and hobby studios. With the abundance of amenities, activities and entertainment there is sure to be something of interest for everyone.

Sun RV Resorts makes it easy for you to enjoy your winter away from home. Experience the peace of mind that comes from knowing each Sun destination shares a commitment to providing programming, amenities and experiences that are consistent coast-to-coast. And while Sherkston Shores will always be your home base, all Sun RV Resorts are focused on delivering an experience that goes far beyond your expectations.

Before heading south this winter, make sure you do your research to ensure that your stay in the US is carefree. Check out the Canadian Snowbird Association website for information on exchange rates, bringing pets across the border, how to update your insurance and more.

Don’t forget Sun RV Resorts offers an excellent First Time Visitors program of 20% off each time you stay at a new resort you haven’t yet explored.

Choose an experience catering to everything from a romantic couple’s getaway in California Wine Country to a winter snowbird escape in sunny Florida and Arizona.
