Snowbird season has arrived on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and the snowbirds have landed, according to WLOX.
For the few months they escape the winter here, these northerners call our home, their home as well.
And that means tourism really is a year-round season. A sure sign: RV parks are packed up.
Snowbirds make up the majority of sites and that makes Tyler Moffett, owner of Southern Comfort Camping Resort in Biloxi, really happy.
“It’s very important to us,” he said. “It’s very vital every year. We count on these return customers. Many of these people coming here for 20-plus years and it’s a great influx every year. It’s kind of downtime, not having so many summer holidays, vacations. So, we really do count on their business every year.”
