bug-free winter weather of southern Arizona any day.
Well, it ain't too bad in the winter here! The state bird (mosquito) is few and far between in the cooler winter weather of the seventies! I understand FCloud9. I too like AZ and, 40-60 is better than the 20 degree weather for sure! Still, sometime give a smaller less populous area a try in FL. You might be surprised. I have to laugh as I was on Kauai at a sunrise Easter service on the beach once. Beautiful. The beach was nice but the water action was really strong. Now you have me wanting to take a trip! I AM going to the Canopener this week. I guess that will have to do.
I agree Doug on one part, that there are parts of FL that are not on my visitation list. The crowds are insane- mostly east coast, Key West and central DizzyWorld. Some of the most beautiful beaches I have seen for beaching/swimming are the panhandle beaches with their high angle (don't even need a beach chair) and nice water. I prefer a natural beach (not a nudie beach) but sea oats, dunes, etc. We are certainly blessed with all these nice places to see huh?
