PS. I don't know what exactly do you mean by vibrancy and in terms of architectures, there's quite a variety within both regions that its difficult to choose one over the other. Also, in the English parts of the Caribbean there's plenty of historical architecture that is not that different from the historical architecture found in much of the southeastern USA, probably because both had massive British influence.

I would say there's "quite a bit" more variety in The Caribbean when it comes to architecture, actually. Like you said, you can find the type of architecture that's commonly present in southeast US in many parts of the English Caribbean. But where in the south can you find anything like the architecture found in Havana or San Juan for example? Not many places, I believe.

Landscapes: Caribbean, it's more varied
Climate: SE US, I love heat and humidity but I like a break from it as well. There is still a change of seasons
Beaches: I'll give that to the Caribbean though I love the NC coast and FL.
Nightlife: SE US, um Miami!
Vibrancy: I have to give that to the Caribbean. Unless New Orleans was considered part of the SE ( then that could be included with S. FL) but I think it's a bit too far west.
Culture: I like the SE culture of the US
Architecture: I'll give that to the SE as well.
Cuisine: Another for the SE US
History: That would have to be a tie

Louisiana is always considered part of the southeast US.

I was thinking more in the literal terms, say from the FL/Alabama line eastward. Now, adding that area to Miami, Key West and the rest of S. FL well, I'll give the vibrancy to the SE US then.

Are there any other areas outside of S.Florida and Louisiana with that kind of vibrant pulse and culture though? New Orleans in particular almost looks like a Caribbean city transplanted in the deep south, it seems very unique compared to the surrounding areas.

This is the extent of the Southeastern United States. So outside of South Florida and New Orleans in Lousiana, are there any other places in the region with a comparable level of vibrancy?

Mobile, Alabama has lots of colonial French and Spanish influences. Mississippi, Florida, and Louisiana and Alabama have very diverse and unique architecture that resembles French and Spanish influences given it's history.
