Virginia (excluding the DC area) and North Carolina are great. good hunting, nice sights and reasonable housing. The climate can be a pain sumtimes but this is the states biggest problem.

For me, it's NC. Affordable, great economy, great weather, friendly people, beautiful coast/mountains/in between, wonderful place for families.

Its hardly ever -5 here (maybe a handful of days at best), and Ill deal with that over hurricanes and year-round sauna-like conditions that Miami suffers through.

I agree. I'll take the -5 over humid 85 any day!

Having lived in Miami when growing up, I'll third that! On those rare winter days when the temperature doesn't even reach zero here in St Paul, I comfort myself by thinking, at least I'm not in Miami in April or May or June or July or August or September!

Only inland Florida is where things get kind of extreme during those months.

Yes the coast usually has a sea breeze, but with the heat and humidity combined we sit close to 100 degrees feels like temperature, typically from Mid-May through October here in Miami. Yes the inland portions are worse, but they will usually sit above 100 degrees feels like. But the rest of the state isn't much better.

I admit, it's been a few years since I lived in Miami. When did they change this?
