We all know Miami gets VERY COLD every winter ( at least 40- 45)

Don't worry I will send you some pictures from San Juan Puerto Rico and Honolulu, Hawaii to keep your buttocks warm in Miami........
Was that necessary? The thread said, what city is the most tropical year around, Miami may not be a true tropical climate, but it's the darn closest you're gonna get in the continental US.

Yeah Miami sure is a FROZEN TUNDRA. People actually have to where heavy jackets for Spring Break. Hahaha. I swear C-D is weird. One minute people on C-D complain about Florida's "OPPRESSIVE" heat and humidity, and claim Florida has NOOOO winter and no seasons and is ALWAYS hot, then the next minute, people complain Florida is TOO cold and freezing. Make up your damn minds. I swear if we had a thread that said "which states don't have seasons", Florida would come up 1st.

but Florida isn't tropical, i don't understand why people say it has "no seasons" either, because it does especially the northern parts of florida, you actually see the leaves changing and trees without leaves and then how they grow, hey you see that in south florida as well!

Most people think subtropical is Florida & they are mostly right. But the scientific criteria of subtropical is south of Florida [ie Cuba]. What has been odd this winter is that Florida has been cooler than California w/ record frosts & really cold ocean temps at times. People going to Florida for spring break are dealing with temps that are lower than Los Angeles. But it is abnormally warm in California right now [86F in LA @ 1PM] & abnormally cool in Florida [Miami is 71F & Tampa is 64F].

I don't understand why people say it has no seasons either. ANYTIME you here about Florida on C-D people talk about it's heat and humidity. For some strange reason it's been cooler then usual. It's still warmer then most states though. It's not nearly as cold as people are trying to make it out to be on this particular thread. On this thread people make Miami sound like Chicago. It's still pretty close to a tropical climate compared to other cities. They just won't let Florida have anything. I nominate Florida BEST state for winter!!!! Watch someone try to refute that.

I can say for certain by going on Google Street view that Miami has a plethora of many diverse tropical palm trees and plants,not necessarily indigenous to the area but flora and fauna that survives here.
