Where would you rather live.. and why?

Who has better weather climate?

(NJ has 4 seasons. Hot & Humid summers (mostly mid to upper 80s and many days on 90s), Pleasant spring & fall, Cold winters (20s and 30s).

(FL has 2 seasons. Long Hot & Humid summers (mostly low to mid 90s) with daily thunderstorms, mild to warm, short and dryer winters)

Florida for sure...but the higher you go in Florida...the more likely you will see three seasons and not just two...remember...almost every year Florida has had frost warning in the northern parts of the state....

Indeed. We had at least two hard freezes last year.
Many people do not seem to realize this, though.

NEW JERSEY!
you have the shore and 4 seasons, and you get more culture... and you have better food

and not everyone around you is slowly dying.

~maybe because i had a bad experience in florida, i went to see my grandpa in Fort Myers and listen to the story...
I saw Confederate flags in numerous spots, KKK tatooed on someones arm, got bitten by more mosquitoes in one night then in my whole life in jersey, it rained everyday, had my first fire ant incident (OWW), the only chance i got to the beach red tide was happening and the water looked sickly and the shore line had dead fish everywhere, and paid a large amount of money for the most disgusting pizza i ever had in my life.

but it had beautiful scenery

Definitely NJ for me. I could very easily live within commuting distance of NYC. Even with that horrid snow.
