I voted for Florida mainly because I prefer the South.

But I can certainly see why most people would prefer California. SoCal has never done anything for me, but Northern California really is beautiful.

California is just too varied to be beat in this contest. You have true alpine lakes, real mountains, mediterranian climates, desert climates, alpine climates, SF, San Diego, skiing, surfing, redwoods, carmel, yosemite, lake tahoe... Florida has some really nice beaches, but little real variety. Personally I'd rate Oregon, Colorado, and New York state well above Florida (along with some other states as well). California versus Florida? Not even close.

Miami is better than any city in California? Wow! That's an interesting POV! I, however, beg to disagree. What makes you say that Miami has an East Coast vibe, just because it is on the East Coast? It doesn't remind me at all of its fellow cities up north... (NYC, Phila, Boston, DC, etc...)

Unlike CA where the sun is out year-round.

I picked Florida because you can actually live and work in Florida. Also you don't meet a lot of people here that have very forceful views when they're out of their element. Middle class families cant move to California. Its a state built around globalization and attracting people from around the world with deep pockets. I'll probably never see California. It was a dream of mine to live there growing up. But that has changed.

Florida has great beaches and great beach communities. Although I love our rugged coastline, it'd be nice to have some white sand and turquoise water. I would trade SF Bay for Biscayne Bay in a second.

Everything else about California is great, though.
