The choices are obvious, Florida, the Deep South, Texas, and the SW desert regions. The Deep South is the mostaffordable, but how desirable is it now, or in the future? Mobile, AL, for example, is right on the Gulf, it has refineries, it looks like a good spot for jobs, and winter weather haters. Maybe it has a bright future as the population moves to warmer climates, or maybe the Deep South will always be considered undesirable by most. How desirable would Tampa, FL be? Is it a place with hoards of winter charm? What about Houston and San Antonio, Texas. I am sure these are considered warm winter climates, but on the other hand it's not particularly green or attractive in these cities in the winter, the landscape is mostly brown (from my understanding). I am contemplating this question because I am 47 and I want to leave winters behind.I am single and have no good excuse for staying in a place where it snows. I want to find a good place; for growth, for jobs, and for overall winter appeal. I am imagining flowers, birds chirping, and a pleasant scent in the air. Personally I would love to live someplace like Orange County, but CA scares the hell out of me, I justcan't bring myself to move to a state in such economic straits. Please give me your ideas of cities or regions for me to consider. Thank you.

The Miami/Ft Lauderdale area would be your best bet.

Houston is never. ever. brown. That would be Austin. Houston is mostly green year-round.
