I know it isn't the thread question, but another reason why CA summer nights are probably nicer is because they don't have the bugs FL does.
It's funny what people make up these days. I've got bitten 15 times by mosquitos in FL in the North I got bitten by a rat in NY.

^Are you agreeing or disagreeing with me?

About your rat bite...I find it surprising (though I do believe you) that a rat here would bite you. I live in NYC and also teach in the south Bronx where it's infested with rats. Never been bitten. I guess I'm just lucky lol.

Very true! The humid South Florida summers breed mosquitoes like crazy.

I LOVE nights in Southern Ca, at least near the coast. I prefer temps at night right around 68-73 degrees. Usually San Diego is 66-73 most summer nights and it will usually dip into the upper 60's for the low, which is nice for sleeping b/c I do not have AC. BUT I could live with FL nights, I actually don't mind humidity as much as some and like how warm it is. Hawaii has the best temps and beat both CA and FL for overall weather imo. The nights in SoCal are so much better than Northern CA where its FREEZING at night in summer, I can't stand how its 90 degrees during the day then 55 at night. Long sleeve shirts and sweaters are not suppose to be worn in summer unless you live in the Bay Area.

You sure you're not thinking of fall or spring? I routinely lose entire nights of sleep in summer because, even with the swamp cooler on high, the temperature is in the 80's, and I don't even live in the Valley.

only during heatwaves when temps exceed 100 are the nights warm in Northern CA, at least in the Bay Area. Other parts of NorCal maybe a little different in places that are consistently warm like the Central Valley. Bay Area weather goes below to above normal all summer b/c of the fog some days and lack of it other days. But if the temp is normal or below normal its almost always below 60 at night. The average low in July and August where I grew up, Walnut Creek/Eastbay, is 55. San Diego's coldest temperature ever recorded in July is 55 and August its 57.

It is next to impossible to sleep without AC during a summer night in FL. So. Cal? It's a cinch.
