Must be because you are used to humidity. It is warm without being uncomfortable. Something that cannot be said of Houston. It's appeal escapes me.

I agree I can get all over San Diego on Transit, maybe its not the quick efficient system of DC but it can be done. Try that in Tampa or Jacksoville, Raleigh and other big sun belt places, one needs a car just to find a neighborhood store.

Another CA resident had recently mentioned Houston's climate was similar to Hong Kong's.

We know its appeal escapes you. It seems every other post you're complaining about Houston or Texas. With very little concrete info to back up your very subjective opinion. If you feel you must Houston-bash for some reason, at least give some good evidence. Or better yet... just spare us further.

I currently live in Sarasota Florida and have visited The Orange County area in California a few times. In my opinion these are the two states that have the best weather in this country. Florida has 8 months out of the year where the weather is great. 4 months out of the year it will get very hot. Hotter than any other part of the state because of the humidity. Once your body gets use to it, your golden and you will love it. California Is great because you can basically choose what kind of weather you want to feel that day. Valleys can get really hot like an ovens dry heat and then get cold at night. I dont think I have ever felt humidity in California but some people like dry cold air. If you live in Florida for a few years you will think everywhere else you go in the country is too cold. Dessert weather is great if you are in buisness. you will be working during the day so when you get off it is already cooler outside. In Florida the humid weather lingers around most of the year keeping the cooler months very nice, but the warmer months (summer) very overpowering. If you like mild cool weather all year around than California is for you. But if you prefer white, fine sand over rocky brown sand than Florida is for you. You can explore the beaches in Florida more than you can in California because of the population difference. Finding a parking spot to check out a beach is not that hard to do in Florida and sometimes you might have the beach all to yourself. In California the beaches are very crowed near big cities and the water is too cold in the winter to swim. But it all depends on what kind of beach/warm weather experience you want. There are ups and downs to both states

Houston has the coldest average winter temperatures compared to San Diego & certainly Los Angeles [yet both cities are much further north]. The reason is lack of mountains in Texas so that cold arctic air masses from Canada can plunge right down to the Gulf Coast. Compared to SoCal & certainly central\South Florida, Houston is more likely to have freezing temperatures & is the only city that averages a trace of snow each winter.

Define "warm."

I say this because if "warm" for you is just "it never really gets cold," then San Francisco, hands down. But San Francisco rarely gets truly warm, either - it's basically between 50 and 80 most of the time. There's also not much humidity. Now, that sounds great to me, but lots of people like it hotter, so...

Idunno. I'm not one of the Sun Belt, and none of those places have particularly good public transit. Maybe LA? It's the biggest one and has the most to do. The public transit is lacking, but no more so than in any other Sun Belt city.
