I don't think the size of the state matters in terms of cost of living. For example, Texas' major cities are already more expensive, and in some cases MUCH more expensive than just about anywhere in the Midwest outside of Chicago. Most people now want to live either in cities or in their vicinities (suburbs). People aren't moving to rural areas in large numbers, and in fact, rural areas in most states are declining in population, even in fast-growing states. If a state's urban areas become too expensive, people will start looking to other places. They're unlikely to move to the middle of nowhere just to be in a certain state.

I think I'd be more impressed if Florida's economic output were closer to New York's.

I'm not sure why people like FL so much, besides the beach.

There are theme parks and beaches, but most of the state is flat and boring.

There's nothing else in FL(being flat) besides theme parks and the beach. All 20 mil people live around theme parks or on the beach.

New York's economic output consists of hedge fund managers and other "investment professionals" skimming money from real, value-added economic activity.
