That depends on what you are looking for.If you want a year round beach climate then Hawaii is good although it is expensive to live there,CA is a pretty state do you like the ocean,the mountains,or the desert? Florida happens to be my home & I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.It all depends on what you are looking for exactly.Check places out online and make an educated decision.
Look up rents on line. Check temps and rain fall and the like too also crime and population. I line on the southern Oregon coast. No air pollution. People surf in wet suits down the coast. World class golf. Not over crowded. Not a lot of jobs. Great place tp retire or raise a family.

All have there pros and cons. Fl is flat and humid. They do have brief cold snaps in the winter, depending where in the state you live as to how cold it will get. They have some great beaches. I prefer the smaller towns away from the tourists, but that is true of anywhere I go. Hurricane season can get a bit dicey and it can be hard to get homeowners insurance because of it.
CA also has some great beaches but the water is much colder. Housing is expensive and unlike hurricanes that you know are coming, earthquakes just happen. The air is drier and depending on where you live can be very polluted. If you have respiratory issues, not a good place.
HI is also expensive. A lot of the goods have to be shipped in from the mainland so islanders incur the extra cost. However if you want to wear the same clothes all year round this is the place. If you get stir crazy, not so much. The Big Island is only 93 miles at it's widest point. You can't just jump in the car and go visit family and friends out of state. HI also get large storms but not to the degree FL does.
If money isn't a factor I would take HI, if money is a factor you get more bang for your buck in FL.
I would exclude Hawaii off the bat too expensive and no jobs. San diego probably has the best weather and beautiful girls, beach and some jobs. Florida is nice if you are older. So if you are 35 and under I'd say cali if you are over 35 Florida.(unless you want live in miami and party it up)
Cali for sure, I've live in both, Florida crime is crazy and too darn humid, cali so much more to do outside in the great weather, florida is nothing but bars and sitting in pools or beach, Fl sucks, sure rent is cheap because you get paid crap in florida, and what's up with 50% Haitian pop. in south florida? they make for some dirty neighbors
