The thread does say "As a place to live". Plus, I'm pretty sure Texas is one of the most visited states in the nation.
That being said, I've liked Florida when I've visited, but I couldn't live there because it caters so much to the tourist industry. It doesn't have the "place to call home" feel like most other states have. Just my two cents.

Yes I do like Texas a little bit more than FL. But that does not mean I don't like FL. Go to the FL forums, and you'll see I'm usually the one defending Florida from all of the bashers.

By being unprepared I was referring to the large amount of buildings that are either not insulated or don't have a heating system. There are quite a few, even some of the more recent ones..
I didn't dismiss Miami-Dade, I spoke about parts of Miami-Dade. Miami-Dade consist of more than those two areas I mention. Please if you going to give information make sure it's correct and unbiased.

Atlanta, TX is one happening town. There's so much to see and do there, like go to the... er... Wal-mart.

They have a Dairy Queen there too.
