Lots of nice year round campgrounds in Texas. If I was looking for a place to go I would look at the Texas hill country

I think we want to fish (bass) more. But the south west does have its appeal. Looking more for the old south charm and hospitality. We live in an area that has very friendly people and are looking for much of the same.

We went full time when we retired and travel when the weather is the best. So we winter in Florida from October - Feb or March, then hit the road. We keep to the Southern tier in early spring and venture further North as the snow cover recedes. For instance, our 2015 Spring trip has us leaving NE Florida in late March heading first over to Pensacola, then up to western Virginia, then on to upstate New York and over to New England to visit Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire etc. We'll come back down the coast and head for a two month stay in Virginia Beach before heading back to Florida for the winter.....at least that's the plan

If you have people in VA Beach that's OK but living near there at one time & now in Southern Virginia, Myrtle Beach SC has several campgrounds on the beach / ocean that VA Beach does not have & 100 times more things to do & offer.
