I can't argue with Florida beaches because they are spectacular. But have you consider visiting Austin Texas? while yes it does not border an ocean but it does have some amazing views of the hill country, go jet skiing on the lake and party downtown into the early morning. You will be surprised how many people especially from New York and New England like it here. But like I say sometimes its not for everyone.

How is our culture a turn off?

He thinks that all Texas culture amounts to is "cowboy hats and country music". I wouldn't ponder it too long.

FL. Better weather and beaches, more beautiful, better culture.

I've lived in both and those who haven't should probably resist the need to post about comparing the two.

First and foremost-- the states themselves are diverse and different - and stereotyping each state as one place is foolish and ignorant. For example El Paso, Texas is a desert climate and has some Westerm and lots of Mexican Culture. East Texas is more like places in Florida Brooksville etc (but colder). Brooksville Florida is nothing like Miami Beach.

Having said that I now live in Rockport a coastal town in Texas why different from other parts of the state. It attracts people from all over -because of the fishing art and nice climate. Low crime and traffic. San Antonio 2 hours away is a big metro.

South Florida has nasty drivers and bad traffic. Some Texas Metros have lots of traffic but much more considerate drivers. South Texas is a much cheaper place to live than South Florida . I could write a book on this but wont

Not all of Texas has a desert climate. The north has more of a steppe-type climate. In the southeast of the state, along the Gulf, it is humid subtropical. In the far south, like Brownsville, it is subtropical (almost tropical, to tell the truth! Not too different from somewhere like Sarasota!).
