Basically everywhere on that poll except CA, TX, and AZ; too chilly in all of those places. Mediterranean sounds nice except I'd rather go when it's warmer, still would find their temps a little too chilly (similar to CA) if I wanted warmer weather.

In the US definitely Hawaii then South Florida. Hawaii is PERFECT in winter imo.

After that anywhere tropical or the southern hemisphere where it's summer.

I'm a Northerner and I don't apologize for it. I enjoy winter so I'm not looking to escape. That said, I could use a vacation every now and then. My top pick from this list is the Pacific Islands. I'd love to visit Fiji one day. The Mediterranean would be my second choice. I'd like a place that's comfortable. Arizona is too hot with zero water.

What's with the percentages?

I chose Hawaii on the list. Off the list (should've chosen "other"), I'd probably chose Barcelona.

Spain, Italy, Greece or Portugal. Maybe southern France as well.

those places get a lot of rain during the winter. Wouldn't you want a place more "summer" like.

I'm not sure people want summer in winter, just to avoid single digits and snow.

I've also been to other tropical places in the Caribbean, Asia, etc.
That's what I was thinking more or less, but Florida's Gulf coast, which I'm more familiar with because I used to have in-laws there. Southwest Florida, near Fort Myers. It's close, as you point out about Miami but definitely makes all the difference when you're in the NY/NJ metro area.

I'd also do the Bahamas or Puerto Rico.
