I will still choose Northern Florida any day over 6 months of grey, cloudy, icy wind and snow weather when everything green and blooming goes away in Pennsylvania!

In general Florida is a humid place but some people can tolerate the heat and humidity better than others. I live in Venice (about 75 minutes south of Tampa) and it is very hot and humid here July through about mid October. We do get a Gulf breeze throughout most of the year but not much wind during July through October. I live 2 miles inland, though. If you can afford a beachfront home you would have a different perception and you would probably experience the heat differently. In my experience, just a couple of miles can make a big difference here. In general, though, it's very hot on the Gulf Coast for at least 4 months of the year. People who wish to relocate here should rent here for a few months in summer before committing to a permanent relocation.

I have lived in NYC, Atlanta, St Louis and they all can be hot & humid!

We built a house in Florida. Community pool, the Gulf, full HVAC in the house and a car that can take us to the movies, malls, library's to deal with the hot months. We will be retired so we can plan our days around the peak of the heat.

We wont miss the snow!
