A lot of those aren't on the coast, especially Orlando.

I think the 'original' Naples is lovely. It's too bad that half the world decided to move there, though.

I think the scenery on the coast in CA is more beautiful, because, even though you may get some mangrove marshes by the beaches of Florida, usually all you see on the coast there are highrises, and it is so flat. Also, CA has waves, scrub-covered cliffs, and salt marshes lined with palm trees all along the coast, so in that aspect, CA is more beautiful. On the other hand, many beaches of FL are more beautiful with the tropical palm trees on their soft, white sand beaches (CA's sand is more golden, and not quite as soft), and the water, though very calm, is often times clearer in FL, so in that aspect, FL is prettier. Overall, I think it is a tie, but maybe with an edge to FL because of the warm water and nicer weather. Or maybe an edge to CA because there are very few CA beaches with highrises on them...IDK, it really is a draw.
