Here is Atlanta in January 2015. Doesn't look much different than around here in winter. Lots of dead trees.

here is Long Island, NY in winter. Tbh, it looks quite similar. And we all know how cold Long Island can get in winter.

No swimming,no beaching, etc. You will not get summer weather outside of south FL in winter in the southern US. The Caribbean is a far better alternative for that.
You don't really get summer weather in south Florida during winter either. Our weather during winter is usually not cold, but it's not hot either. It is more like September in New York City type weather. Highs in the 70s sometimes 80s sometimes 60s and lows in the 60s, 50s and occasionally 40s. I never swam there during the winter, and no one in my family does. Yet again, we aren't northerners and my mother and sister swear that 65 degrees is "cold" lol. I personally found it uncomfortable for swimming from October to April usually. Even on hot days in April, the pool usually feels a bit nippy for a dip.

I tell you, I love cool/cold air but cannot comfortably swim in water less than 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

lol that's funny.. Though tbh, racket ball, squash and even tennis indoors is more palatable than indoor skiing.. I think so anyway.

If you look at almost all other developed countries, all their citizens have the ability to live or move to somewhere of the climate of their choice.

For example:

-The USA has Florida or Hawaii for heat lovers and Alaska and Minnesota for cold lovers
-The EU has the Schengen Agreement with the rest of the EU. How many Brits now live in Spain these days due to warm weather? Spaniards can move to Scandinavia if they want to also.
-Australia and New Zealand has an agreement whereby citizens of each country can live in the other one for hot or cold/cool climates
-Japan has Okinawa which is subtropical and Hokkaido for cold climate lovers

So it seems that Canadians only have cold climates to choose from and Vancouver where I live is not exactly a warm climate on a global scale If we want to move to a subtropical or tropical climate permanently at least during our working years, it's not really possible without jumping through all kinds of immigration hoops
I disagree. Canada's climate is just as varied. Vancouver averages about 10 degrees C while Eureka, Nunavut averages about -20. That's a difference of 30 degrees C or 50 degrees F. That's huge if you ask me.

Really? JUST AS VARIED? The US has cities that are -20 in the winter too, in addition to places where it 25C in January. Where do we find Canadian cities at 25C in Jan?

Just as varied?

I'm talking yearly average temperatures. You do get 25 degree weather in Canada in the winter, and you also get -60 degree weather in winter. That' a difference of 85C/153F
