What is everyones favorite warm weather city in the USA? I graduate with my BA in accounting this year and I'm considering looking for work in a warmer climate. I do love fishing and the ocean, I'm not a huge fan of the northeast winters. From your experiences what was your favorite warm weather city and why?

Miami reigns supreme when it comes to warm weather climate. South Florida the only tropical region on US mainland.

I was born and bred in the mid-Atlantic and spent most of my career in Houston before returning back east recently. There's a lot to be said for mild winters, but before you take the leap, just make sure you're comfortable with hot and sticky summers. Imagine your worst summer day in CT when the temps and humidity are in the 90s. Then imagine that starting in mid-May and ending in mid-Ocotboer (day and night):

10 Day Weather Forecast for Miami - weather.com
10 Day Weather Forecast for Charleston - weather.com

If you can handle that, then go for it. As a positive, in addition to mild winters, cost of living is generally lower than the northeast (unless you choose to live right on the coast). Have fun finding your new home.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

JM02, you raise a valid point and it's something I've given serious consideration to. I've experienced the oven that is south florida in the dead of summer. In all honesty Id rather deal with the heat than the cold and depressing winters here. To each their own, I just find the winters depressing.

I made the move from VA to Miami for Grad School and I loved not having a winter, sticky summers and all. I think that if you are 22ish (typical college grad age) and can get a decent job check out Miami if you are into a big city vibe. If you would just rather not have winters but dont prefer too much heat, check out California.
