Two weeks ago the fall season launched with warm temperatures but lovely weather. October is jam-packed with great outdoor events each year and we eagerly look forward to a time when summer tourists return home and the pace eases a bit. But, then...we started to get a...
How is it October already? Some of you (lucky ones) already are on the road to settle in for the winter before cold and snow set in up north. We call you part-time residents, not visitors. You are the ones that newbies consult upon arrival and are the great...

SBGC Feb. 2018 Online Edition
Welcome! We are pleased to return for our 11th season serving the Snowbird market. It is with anticipation that we welcome back old friends and look forward to making new ones.
Can you believe the season is just about here? Some of you arrived in October to enjoy the great weather and wonderful festivals while others have made their way this month and others are looking forward to January 1.
Our first edition each year is appropriately called “Holiday” and we are diligently working on that now. As a reminder, we offer four print editions each winter and these are distributed from the Biloxi, Miss., coast to the Alabama Gulf Coast and along the Florida panhandle to east of Panama City, Fla., but we also post the pdf online as well.
As I write this I’m just a day removed from a seven-day cruise – and working against a tight deadline.
My wonderful graphic designer, Renee Culpepper, and I joined a fun group of Snowbirds from Destin, Gulf Shores and Dauphin Island aboard the Carnival Dream out of New Orleans, La. The seven-day journey took us to Montego Bay, Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico.
To say that we were looking forward to this journey is an understatement. I’ve been on numerous cruises in the past 25 years and thoroughly enjoy the pampering; opportunity to visit several destinations in just a few days; great food; and a chance to just chill out without having to be anywhere.
After having a fairly mild early winter across the country Mother Nature arrived in a big way toward the end of January with forecasts of record snowfall in many parts of the country. Cold winds blew through here too but soon the sunshine arrived and Snowbirds took up their normal Gulf Coast routines.
We hope you all have had a wonderful holiday and are looking forward to January as much as we are!
Holiday season 2014 is one to be celebrated. If you already are here on the coast - congratulations! But, many of you will spend the holidays with loved ones then venture down for a few months. In either case, come prepared to enjoy yourself! There are so many ways to...
Fall Festival season is near and Snowbird season is around the corner.
I hope you are enjoying your summer with family and friends.
