if you wanna consider one bad blizzard in march or february a lot.. other than that the nyc metro area only gets about 7-9 inches a month during dec-march.

South jersey gets even less.. its North West Jersey that gets the "horrid" snow.

It may be bias, but I'd choose New Jersey. Sure, you've got access to two great cities (NYC and Phila), but NJ is also filled with dozens upon dozens of little "Main Street" towns and villages set in leafy hills and river valleys. I also prefer the climate. It's not unusual to have an evening in summer when the temps dip down into the low 60s/upper 50s once in awhile. You can get that nice escape from the summer heat. The gorgeous autumn colors, great cool weather, fresh apples and cider, pumpkin bread made from pumpkins picked that morning, mmmmm. I also enjoy getting a bit of snow in winter.

I enjoy visiting Florida, but I can't see myself living there. I wouldn't enjoy the long, hot summers. I don't get excited about any of the cities in Florida.

i'm from NJ but moved to fl 6 years ago. i am trying to move back to Nj because of the eduction, seasons ( even though i hate the long cold winters) culture, food, diversity and of course NYC. I am truly torn here. i tried to move back to NJ last year and couldnt way too expensive and now here i am again trying and omg are the rents high. i have been looking for a place in bergen county for 5 weeks now and nothing. I am at my witts end here and am thinking of moving back. I love the beautiful beaches in Fl and the outdoor life which you get most the year. The quality of life is better because it is less expensive and you could get sooooo much nicer for sooooo much less. snow birds have it made.

Sure, when you pick the best of N Jersey vs the worst of Florida

I do like New Jersey though

I also voted for New Jersey.

I like both states but New Jersey seems to be a state where you want to put down long term roots and raise a family while Florida seems to be a great place to go on a nice vacation. Anyway, I could live in either location.
