Gateway to Latin America not that big a deal. Florida has a lot of theme parks and family activities. But it's not something I would do every month or other month. So I would be fine visiting Florida every summer to enjoy Sea World, Disney, and beaches.

Texas has more diverse economy and better paying jobs.
Agreed. Work in Texas, take vacations in FL. Cash in your chips when the time is right and snowbird in Florida.

To the person who just said Texas has a lot of uninhabited land because it is undesirable... really doesn’t know the first thing about desirability. It’s the beauty of unspoiled nature that attracts. Now back to the question. So I have lived in both states my whole life. I love the beach atmosphere and vibe of Florida. Seems like Tampa would be a good fit for the big city amenities but with beautiful scenery of many nearby nature preserves as well as world class fishing and beaches on Clearwater. Top rated hospitals as well. And let’s not forget the proximity to Disney. That being said. Texas is UNMATCHED when it comes to family life. The schools, the medical and range of activities simply outshine Florida in every way. An example of this Being Austin Tx especially so near lake Travis. As a lover of both states I can say they are wildly different. But I will Always come back to Texas.

Lived in FL for 18 years, Texas for 2 and a half. If I had to move back to either, I'd pick Texas. Wouldn't want to, though.
