Snowbird Vibes for Beachfronts & Boardwalks

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere. (On the beach. That’s where.) Check out the best tunes to play on your RV beach cruise.

Steering south to snowbird in your RV has its perks. And beach living—in the Winter, baby!—calls for some serious life changes. Like trading shoes for sandals. And mixing music with your margarita.

Everyone is always looking for that perfect playlist for the beach. But not you. We got you all hooked up. Here are a few of our favorites for an RV beach cruise, but you can get go ahead and get the playlist going: Press play on Spotify.


Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett, “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere”

The kings of vacation who paved the way for Kenny Chesney and the Zac Brown Band, these two men KNOW what it means to take a load off—where there are no shirts, no shoes, and no problems


The Beach Boys, “Kokomo”

Is it a beach playlist without The Beach Boys? One of the best earwigs of all time, “Kokomo” makes us want to head south and don an itsy-bitsy teenie-weenie yellow polka-dot bikini.

Blondie, “The Tide Is High”

Blondie singing beach music is disorienting (and delightful) all at once—big horns, smooth vocals, and reggae vibes. But it’s just weird enough that it works. So, hold on.

Bette Midler, “Under the Boardwalk”

Classic, but with a twist. Extra points if you’re making your way down to Crystal Cove in Southern Cal to visit the oceanfront cottage that started it all. (Yes, you really can visit the “Beaches” cottage.)


Kenny Chesney and Uncle Kracker, “When the Sun Goes Down”

If it’s Kenny Chesney, it’s beach music. It is almost impossible to choose one song by Chesney, but this is our pick for when you’ve got a cold drink chillin’ in your hand.


Bobby Darin, “Beyond the Sea”

A track like a saltwater oasis and a hug all in one. With big band instrumentals and an old-school crooner, it’s the heart’s perfect primer as you drive toward those golden sands.
