Florida is warm year round. For many people it sounds great, and for me too. However, I think sooner or later, you might get sick of being able to have perpetual summer. It's not gonna feel special anymore. Also, having warmth year round kinda takes the fun out of spring, because nothing has to "thaw" or "come back".

I like my area's climate for the most part. It's just that we don't have many GREAT days. It's usually too hot, too cold, too sticky, or too something. There's literally probably 10 days a year where it feels great. And that's it. Otherwise there's some kind of extreme.

Last night we went to a beach bonfire party.
Up here in the Panhandle, it gets nippy. Everyone was bundled up in jackets and hoodies, etc. But we had shrimp boiling, oysters roasting and plenty to drink.
As the sun set into the Gulf, stately squadrons of pelicans patrolled past.
Then the stars came out. You can really see the stars here.
I'm telling you, it just doesn't get much better than last night.

Cil! Shame on you! And you didn't invite us!
Sounds like it was a spectacular evening.

I lived in NYC most of my life. I remember when we had beautiful spring days. It was awesome. You felt so alive. I would love to just get on the road and start driving upstate (from Westchester county).
HOWEVER, I have been in Miami now for 10 years and I would not trade one single solitary Florida day for the most beautiful, scenic, springy (or autumn) day anywhere else. The snow, the minus degrees wind chill, the bundling, the boots, the ice, the potholes on the roads, no siree!
