Comparing beaches from FL to TX is actually comical. It's a night and day difference, especially here in the pan handle. I would say the climate is similar in some spots of texas and very different in others. It's much more humid in FL than it would be in El Paso, but in DFW there is humidity all through the summer.

We came from a very dry climate (AZ) and have acclimated to the humidity here. It doesn't bother me at all.

Beaches in Florida are usually white and or pink sand and don't have any silt or mud. Texas beaches include silt or mud from the Mississippi delta.

Florida can have micro climates like the "beachside" microclimate I live in. Beachside is the small strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and the intercoastal waterway which is milder than farther inland. At the beach and in surrounding neighborhoods you will always have a breeze, from cooler air to warmer air. Also beachside don't get as cold and frosts are less because the ocean acts as a heat sink.

Houston is probably more humid than much of Florida and El Paso will be dryer than Florida.
