Snowbirds Come South! Do Roadrunners Go North?In the winter - the "snowbirds" come s

In the winter - the "snowbirds" come south for the cold months to the RGV and other warm locales. There are campgrounds that specialize in activities for these RVers. Are there RV communities where groups of RVers go for the hot summer months? I don't want to spend another hot summer in Tx. I realize that I can go to higher elevations in NM & Co by myself.

Could not find any of the summer STUFF up north, compared to snowbirding south.
Long treks head for ALASKA and CANADA. After a few month in a nice Resort or a great place somewhere "South" we all want to drive again!!!

There are seasonal parks in the northern states that cater to long term guests. Some of them are ownership parks, while others have seasonal leases. During the summer they have activities, just like the snowbird parks do in the winter.

I know of two offhand: Tomorrows Stars RV Resort, near Springfield, OH, and Roaring Brook Park, near Stafford, CT. We've stayed at others, but the names escape me right now. They are all over.

Since we are permanent residents of Florida, when we go north for the summer we call ourselves "sunbirds" - escapees from the hot summer sun.

Don't know, just heard it around the Inet. The UP of Michigan appears to be a summer destination.

As a Florida Native, I can say that we leave every summer for 3 months or so to escape the heat and humidity. It didn't bother me too much as a kid, but now my bulk to surface area ratio has changed drastically. Anywhere in the mountains is usually cooler.
