According to this...Florida is no slouch in the jobs department either...doesn't look "hands down" Texas to me. To say an entire state full of people are rude...I'd have to question that. I've met plenty of friendly Floridians. The OP is young...go to Florida and enjoy it...Texas will always be here for later.

Jobs are always a hot-button issue for state legislators, and never more than during an election season. As voters across the country head to the polls today, many may be hoping that new leadership will jumpstart growth in states where job creation has stagnated, while others will be looking to continue progress already made this year.
The cities and states that make this list have experienced the strongest non-agricultural job growth over the first three quarters of 2014, according to analysis of data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics by Professor Lee McPheters at the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. Approximately 2.4 million jobs have been added to date this year, a 1.8% monthly average in national job growth, an increase of about 0.1 percentage point since last year.
Topping the list of cities and metro areas (including one million or more workers) for job growth thus far this year is Orlando, Florida, with 3.7% growth so far in 2014–more than twice the nationwide average.

Go where you get hired in the best job...the Tampa/San Antonio comparison is a wash without a good income. All things being equal, getting hired by the best company with the most potential to develop into a living and career to support your family is most important.

Find work and then move. Apply and interview in both cities. Take the best offer and that takes care of your decision.

Tampa is larger and growing slightly slower than San Antonio. Like the poster above stated I'd go with the best job offer.

For what it's worth San Antonio is a younger city based on resident population.
