North Carolina. Florida gets old rather quickly.

Definitely NC, but look for housing nearer Greensboro.

So does NC unless you live on the beach or in the mountains. The OP will be stuck in the flatlands.

Florida wins for boating and water sports (but don't sell the Carolina coast short either) but inland outdoor activities? NC wins, by far. You got mountains and lots of forests that aren't as likely to have gators and snakes. You got 4 seasons to enjoy as well. Unless its water related, Florida sucks for the outdoors. NC has best of both worlds, beaches and mountains.

North Carolina is way better than FL.

Most of the Piedmont (central section) has some very pretty areas with plenty of tree cover and geographic variation in terms of hills, so it's hardly "flat" like FL.

I prefer NC over Florida in general, but Lake Mary is in the Orlando Metro area, which I prefer over the Triad. If you prefer water activities, Florida will be the better choice. For everything else, North Carolina.

Gators and snakes indicate high biodiversity. Same with coral reefs and some of the best fishing on earth..all those can keep someone busy for months. So, no need for mountains or seasons in FL because life revolves around the ocean. FL has some nice trails, away from the coast, i.e. Lake county, natural springs, caves, rivers, lakes, the Everglades..so I wouldn't say it sucks for outdoors away from the coast.

Most of these "outdoors men" who dismiss recreation in areas like FL because of "flatness" are simply closet couch potatoes. They try to use mountains/topography as a crutch, but the truth is glaringly obvious.

Florida has some of the best state parks in the nation! There are great outdoor opportunities throughout the state.
