My picks are all in Florida: Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, Jacksonville, and Tampa-St. Pete.

I don't consider Denver to be part of the "Sunbelt." Denver gets a lot of snow, gets really cold in the winter, has really unpredictable weather year round, and is no where near as consistently sunny as Phoenix or Vegas is. I know plenty of people from Denver who moved to Phoenix specifically because Denver wasn't warm and sunny enough for them.

Denver is probably just as sunny as PHX, no joke. I believe Denver has over 300 days of sunshine a year, about the same as PHX. Sure it rains and snows in Denver, it rains in PHX too, and they get worse storms. And it does snow in southern AZ, but not as much as Denver. But in Denver they can enjoy the snow with the best ski resorts in the country.

I don't think you can use sunnyness. Minneapolis is sunnier than Miami, but it's hardly in the Sunbelt.

San Diego is my favorite place to vacation on this list.

For lifestyle, location, job opportunities, and relative affordability, Charlotte would be a top choice. As I've heard it said as a twist on an old saying, "Charlotte is a great place to live, but I wouldn't want to visit there!"
