Which situation do you think is more ideal to live in? I know it depends on where within Florida or New England we're talking about, but just assume in general.

It seems that New England summers are hotter than Florida winters, but the advantage is that there are mountains, beaches and camping activities available.

Florida winters are more mild, and therefore possibly more pleasant than New England summers, but there might be a lot of snowbirds and tourists clogging up the roads. But it might not be warm enough to enjoy the beach completely...idk.

I have experienced both and find both to be pleasant, although New England can get really hot in the summer, along with the humidity. But I think the fact that there are hills and good hiking mountains really wins it over for me. This is simply not possible in Florida.

I voted for Florida winters (thinking of South Florida).

The best summers in the U.S. are in Southern California. New England summers are humid and uncomfortable by comparison. And So.Calif. offers plenty of hills, mountains and canyons for hiking.

Ideal climate for me: Miami's winter (Dec. to March/April). Los Angeles the rest of the year (May to Nov).

Florida doesn't get enough snow in the winter.

Florida doesn't have a winter unless you consider 65 to 75 cold, I was in Tampa this Dec and Jan it was 70-80 degrees almost every day except one or two cold nights it got to about 55-60
