The water off OC is cold, and only very few people swim in it in February. Some claim to like it, but in your case I suspect you tried to force whatever you can of your vacation.

San Diego, easily, for me. I'm a fan of cool-to-mild weather and hate the heat. The times I've visited the east coast, I stayed away from the ocean after one visit because it was too hot, add in the warm/hot water and it wasn't a pleasant experience. I'll take even Northern CA beaches/ocean over the too-hot-for-me-to-enjoy Floridian ones. Yes, it's cold, but I would much rather it too-cool than too-warm.

*shrug* Everyone has different preferences

2.Miami has much more energy and entertainment and there is no place in the world like it.
1.Miami is only 1% Asian, lower than the state average. San Diego is 16% Asian.
Asians are more diverse than Hispanics.

2.Rio de Janeiro

Which would give San Diego a clear edge if the percentage of Asians was very important to one, but what if it isn't? Miami is still more diverse.

I like it - I swim in Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. I find FL beaches in summer gross. And I've never vacationed in CA or FL (outside of a big extended family trip to Disney), I worked a lot in Orange Co (along with LA & San Diego) with tons of downtime, so I would always go lounge around on the hotel and other beaches. I don't do "warm weather" beach vacations, I grew up on the beaches in Door County and beach living isn't a *magical* thing to me, like it is to a guy like you who grew up landlocked and poor.

I doubt you like it. While Florida summers maybe hot for some people, our water temperatures are most comfortable in the summer. Most natives here won't get into the water unless it's summer.

Let's be honest here, Wisconsin is landlocked. I don't count a lake as a water outlet.
Second, I never grew up poor. I was born in Los Angeles and spent my childhood in Los Angeles and then the later half in Detroit, Michigan in a suburb called Grosse Pointe. While I do consider Detroit landlocked, it's just as landlocked as godforsaken Door County, Wisconsin. I.e access to a lake.

^ Ah, and here's where the irrational Midwestern hate sprang from. You grew up in Michigan, most likely not Grosse Pointe (as you lie/exaggerate), but Michigan for sure. I get it. LOL.

I went to high school in Grosse Pointe South High School. But I went to elementary school in Los Angeles. I grew up on Lake St Clair, big deal, it's you who make this more of an issue than me. Now I live on an ocean.
