I actually like many of the countryside of forests and the Piney woods in East Texas. I do find Caddo Lake as scenic. But that's me.

I'd select Texas, it,s most definitely a family state. I've been to Florida for 3 years, it was OK, nice. In my opinion, while I was there---in Florida--- the weather was on the warmer side during most of the year, meaning more warmer winter days than in Texas. My opinion, Florida is for those who can afford it and enjoy the life of leisure. Restaurants are always packed, with mostly retires, so I found it a bit of a challenge to avoid the crowds and traffic. On the other hand, there are plenty of restaurants. If you have excess money on your hands, Florida is a great place to spend it on your retirement, vacation or living there. It's just not for me-----even if I could afford it, I don't feel very welcomed, or comfortable. I do feel comfortable in Texas, even though I moved there only 2 years ago from the northeast. Just has a 'homelike' feel. People have been very friendly and helpful to me. Good luck with your decision of moving to Florida or Texas.

It's funny, I returned to Texas for Christmas and got some good ole Texas hospitality:

1. Got called a racial slur while walking my dog.
2. Lady at the movies offered to trade seats with me so that I can sit with my family, she just had to check with her husband, who promptly said no.
