I have lived in Hawaii as well as Florida. I'm currently living in Oregon.
I found Florida to be hotter and more humid compared to Hawaii.
Whats it like in mountain home?
The worse thing about living in near the gulf side of Florida was the no see ums!

Not as bad as Florida but still quite humid. Unlike Florida, there’s something of a winter there. Not much snow at all but chilly.
Won’t be like Oregon at all.

I think humidity in parts of the South or Midwest is often actually worse than in Florida, although you did get a reprieve for several months of the year. In Florida, unless you're in the Orlando area, you're never far from the coast. While it is extremely sticky, the temperature never rises above about 90 and you usually have a breeze to make it feel a bit more tolerable. In inland areas, such as Arkansas, you often don't get the breeze and it can feel much worse.

Northern Arkansas is less humid than Florida and Hawaii. You acclimate to wherever you live. It may feel incredibly humid after a few years of living there.

Compared to OR it is darn humid here, but nothing like Hawaii or Florida, or even Texas for that matter. The summers are quite a bit shorter with temps lower than most of the south. We could not stand the summers in TX and couldn't wait to get out. Here we find summers livable. We just spend very little time in the sun from mid June to late Aug This is not saying we stay away from the outdoors, we just choose not to spend much time outside.

Draw a line from Texarkana to Memphis. Gators, while not common, are found South of that line.

The Ozarks are a long way from the ocean. In terms of dew point, it is only humid for 3-4 months, with July and August feeling very similar to the Gulf.
