Default where's best climate to live during fall and winter

I know this the weather topic but my questiion is 2 part. I have been contemplating leaving the U.S. for quite sometime. I want to live out my, "live like I own the world fantasy",lol. Anyhow, I was wondering where are the best climate places to live during the fall and winter U.S. months. I figure I could live there between sept-march. Ideally I would like a beach sunny mid to upper 70's. Call it a vacation home resort style lving. Outdoor activities all day such as beach volleyball, basketball, biking,free weights (or at least be able to import), and parties all night. American amenities(american foods no mystery meals).Soy,tofu,chicken fish,etc along with vitamins and supplements. Cost no more than living in down south at most(exclude south beach housing prices). No natural disasters...preferably english speaking country. I know this is probably not likely but I thought I'd throw all the good stuff out there. Basically an american place without the cost

wow of all the worldy travellers and knowledgable weather people in this forum I would've thought I'd gotten a reply. Can someone refer me to previous forums on this topic if it already has been discussed? The climate aspect which is really the core question and I can research from there all the other stuff mention in post above.

If you're talking average winter month daytime highs, for mid-to-upper 70's F you have either south Florida, Hawaii or other tropical U.S. "territories."

Since you mention Sep-March, if you'll settle for mid-upper 70's in Spring or Fall, you could pick a place like inland southern California, southern Arizona, south Texas or anywhere in Florida.

*All those "warm" places like San Diego, Phoenix and northern Florida average winter in the mid 60's.

You can find small pockets of warmth in the California and Arizona desert that average low 70's in January.

Extreme southern Texas averages low 70's in January.

Orlando, FL and southwards average low 70's+ F for their coolest months.

**Hurricane season starts in June, peaks in August, stays strong in September then after it dies down. If you'd settle for almost zero chance of hurricanes by October then Florida or Texas might fit.


If you want a predominantly English-speaking area, you probably have to move to an American island, because south Texas is very Spanish, the southwest like CA and AZ is quite Spanish as is south Florida. (and lately a lot of central FL too)

Why does it have to be English speaking?
Why does it have to be mid-70's F plus?

Probably all of the "affordable" areas with your temperature criteria will be very Spanish influenced.

If money was no object, Hawaii would be your ultimate destination.
Honolulu averages 79 F for it's coolest month, and pretty much all places at sea level average at least 75 F in winter.

Do you understand Fahrenheit?

mid-high 70's is equal to 24-26 Celcius.

low 70's is equal to 21-23 Celcuis.

mid 60's is 18-19 Celcius.
(which is what sunny Los Angeles is in winter)

If I understood your post correctly, You mentioned leaving the U.S. at least part of the year.
If you don't mind the long air flight, Australia or New Zealand might work for you. Their warm seasons are from September to March and, in some places, can be quite toasty. Cloncurry in interior Queensland has seen it hit 122 (or 50 C) just a year or two ago, as an example.
Neither are terribly expensive and both spreak English.
If that's too far afield, then I would recommend a command of elementary Spanish because no place that's inexpensive and that fits your warmth requirements will be a majority English speaking place.

Yes~what FVWinters said.

SAB lives over in Australia and he may be able to help answer any questions you'd have about it. That would be the ideal situation since you'd have summer in both countries. I'm not sure about the cost of living there though.

SAB, can you help us out?

lol they say mid 60's in Fla but what they mean is 75 and up... In Naples the winter average is suppose to be something like 75 degrees, and rarely does it drop below 83 or 84... Its always warmer than what they say

A.Because I speak english and I was thinking the suggestions would be out the country since I mentioned SUNNY and 70s. I like the tempurature in the 70's because it's not too hot and not too cold but just right. actually it could be low to upper but low to mid is ideal. Assuming the humidity isn't too high(whatever that would be).
