At least in the summer in Miami you can jump into the Ocean or a pool !

Both Houston & New Orleans are far away from the Ocean unlike Miami which has sea Breezes with cooler weather.
Not defending Houston, but suburbs like Kemah, League City, Freeport and Galveston are right on the water, and downtown is 40 miles to Galveston, just trying to post facts

New Orleans sits on what is basically an inlet of the Gulf of Mexico, and Houston's city center isn't far from Galveston Bay.

Miami's ocean breeze helps sooo much. I'm from VA and felt Miami felt more comfortable because of the ocean breeze.

Inland areas of VA? Anywhere on an immediate coast will have ocean breeze, whether in VA or FL.

Dallas and Houston may be hotter than Miami but is it the humidity more in Miami than Dallas and Houston?

Miami and Houston have similar humidity levels. Dallas is hotter and less humid than both.

Heat and a certain amount of humidity really doesn't bother me. But New Orleans is the only U.S. city I've ever been to that I was truly uncomfortable with the heat/humidity. It's really think!

It was the same in DFW that year. Nice and toasty.

I was told it does not get really hot in OK. 104F in the shade and windy. It feels like a furnace.
