Hawaii and Central America are better.

Hawaii is not North America and you know exactly what I meant when I said outside of tropical Mexico. The Virgin Islands beats anywhere in crime ridden and dangerous Central America and you know that. You of the "Southeast is a subtropical Paradise". I remember who you are. You changed your name. You live in Texas around Houston.

No debate about this from me!

I jest. No doubt peninsular Florida is the best in the CONUS for a warm beach experience.

FL is the best at having the most boring and flat weather. No more winters and months without rain and not one cane in over 100 years in my area.

To me there is little in common between a climate with a coolest month mean of 7.1C (Atlanta) and 20.3C (Miami). 7.1C with a mean minimum of -8C is cool/cold enough for widespread winter dormancy, for ecology to be dominated by deciduous trees of genera widespread in the mid latitudes of the NH. Very different from Miami or Bangkok.

I've been there quite a few times in the past, but mostly in Spring for golfing and beach. Early May was great. Winter is mostly in the 50's I thought which is way too cold for beach weather.
