That would be my choice as well...although, as I type this, I am planning on a move to Texas (for work), where the summers are worse than FL..although they eventually end.

Then those high temps or so called "Max highs" as they say in the website, believe me, they go way over 91.4 in June, July, Aug, and Sept. More like 94, 95, 96, and then some at times. How about we factor in the Dew point and humidity levels?

Florida Travel Vacation Guide - Accommodations,* Attractions and Retirement info and more!.
We were talking about Orlando and your site shows what I said, a daily average of 77.

We were discussing average highs, average lows and daily averages.

If all you want to talk about is maximum daily highs then go right ahead. The 91.4 is the average daily highs for the month of July, of course some days are going to be hotter if that is the average. And that is the hottest month.

To take two numbers and add them together and then divide by two is ok when dealing with two, static variables, but not very accurate when dealing with something that possibly changes constantly.
Go ahead and get May 15th or 16ths hourly temps for Orlando, add them up and divide by 24. You will probably come pretty close to 77 degrees.

Much of the rest of the country shares this high - not average, but a lot of other states it the 90's in July and August!

To answer the OP, I'm a bit torn between the two. I hate, absolutley detest the bitter cold months, slush, sleet, slippery roads, hats, gloves, scarves, wind chills, ski caps that make me look like I'm a mugger, falling ice from rooftops when it warms up a little, wind gusts that rip through all my layered clothing, runny nose, fogged eyeglasses, watching beautiful women have to hide their beauty all wrapped up in tons of outerwear and underwear...and the list goes on.

Now, while I like warm weather, the too hot/humid days of Florida can sometimes be unbearable...but I guess a swim in the pool, a dash to the beach in my sandals and socks and summer shorts ought to help out somewhat...of course I can't do this in Naples as a certain lady down there is offended by fellas like me in shorts...so I've got to pick and choose where I go to cool off at that time of year!

If I find the right spot then I prefer Florida summers!
