Key West or any of the keys. Not as hot in the summer and not as cold in the winter.

Yeah, the keys are nice...winters are very mild and lots of sea breeze.

But taking the keys out of the equation, I think the west coast between Pinellas and Charlotte county has the best overall climate.

It depends upon what you want. If you want a more seasonal climate stick with central FL and northward. If you like your winters really mild or warm almost all the time, stay south of Vero Beach. If you like the sea breezes during summer evenings you need to be on the coast (east or west). Just depends upon what you are wanting.

Jax is nice --- nice breeze off the ocean, a little cooler than the other coastal areas IMO

I agree with Pinellas county. Its surrounded by water and usually stays cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the surrounding region. But I still think the Keys may take the cake here.

The furthest north where (even though still HOT as heck), at least it gets "cool" in the winters and isnt hot all the time with little change (S FL).

Theoretically,the southerner the warmer,the northener the cooler...
At least in the Keys,even in the coldest days of the year,you don't have to use heating...

We enjoy the warmth of Florida sun where we live in SE Florida. However, there are many times the cool night air of 70 degrees has us cover up and turn the heat up to 78. We keep our A/C on 75 and our friends keep their A/C on 78-80. I would never fully understand how someone can get cold in Florida until we became full time Floridians just 5 years ago.
