I spend my winters in SE Texas about 35 miles north north east of Houston on a small ranch. If I had my choice in would be in south Florida below Palm Beach. Good Luck

We are leaving Montana in October, and going to Wisconsin and Illinois to visit our kids, and then wander southwest until we get to Deer Valley, AZ and will spend the winter there with our Grandkids. I agree that it is the people, and not the location so much.
The cat gets another long trip.

Because of he high cost of out of country health care, plus the fact that preexisting conditions are not covered we stay in Canada and head to the west coast. The weather might be wet but rain is easy to shovel.

We put a deposit today on a site in Harlington, Tx. It is an established (read old) gated "resort", but if the online pictures are current it looks ok. Just found out that a friend from my old high school spends their winters in San Benito, a stones throw away.

Spend from Fri after Thanksgiving until mid Mar within 15 miles of the intersection of US Hwy 27 and I4 just west of Orlando. Split time between Thousand Trails Orlando/Kissimmee and Fawn Ridge Davenport, FL. Love the area and the people.

We go to Merritt Inland, FL the 2nd week in Jan right after taking down the Christmas lights and stay until mid March.
We put up over 250,000 lights with 475 channels of computer control, all set to time code music and transmitted on a low power FM radio. We average around 450 to 550 cars per night on the street.

I bet your neighbors love the traffic.

We spent last winter in S Fl at Silver Palms RV in Okeechobee FL. We liked it a lit and it is in a small town with little traffic. It is a friendly town and the resort us like home. The rate is not super cheap but by FL standards it is not bad. We paid around 1000.00$ a month. We are staying there three months this year and then heading to Mercedes TX for most if March. We like the area in FL because it's south and when it's cold in Orlando it's warm in Okeechobee. Good luck.

I spend my winters in southeastern Arizona. Spend my summers here as well.

I am actually working on getting all of our snow equipment checked out and ready for winter. I work as a fleet mechanic for ADOT.
We are at 3500 ft. here in the valley and most of our snow is above 5000ft in the winter.
We can get a dusting at times but it is pretty nice here in the Gila valley in the winter.
