If you want winter heat, inland deep South Texas is the place to go. The downsides are the isolation, the poverty, and the lack of diversity.

Agreed (holy crap, I agree with Botev?!?!?!).

Bottom line is that south Florida is the warmest place in the continental USA in the winter, especially the Keys.

I live in SoCal and I've gotten used to the weather and I find winters here chillier than I'd like, although so far this year its been very mild, especially at night. I guess I'm officially a huge cold weather pansy when I find SoCal too cold, everyone makes fun of me for saying that too. It's still 61 degrees at 9pm right now but I wish it was more like 68 or 70 with a little humidity. South Florida has the most desirable temps for me during winter and I would love to live there, am actually trying to move there in the near future.

I'm not sure why so many picked SoCal and AZ b/c its chilly to cold at night in those places. Plus winter is Ca's rainy season while its Florida's dry season. Overall CA weather may be better than FL b/c of their summers but SoFla is by far warmer than SoCal in winter.

Coastal areas of Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina have average January temperatures above 60 degrees or very close to it...

Savannah, GA...average high in January - 60; February - 64
