Highly recommend Florida for the winter.

Crisp morning temps, mild daytime temps, no bugs and little humidity (hurricane season ends in November).
I lived in FL for 5 years (Tampa, Orlando & West Palm Beach)... mostly wore shorts & sandals during winters!

Funny stuff!

Alternative ending: when Toronto gets an NFL franchise!

There are many of your Countrymen in Florida, they seem to like it there. It has without a doubt the best weather in the WINTER in the US, but for the best weather, you must be at Palm Beach or below. Other will say you can be north of there, but if you are it can get cold. Good Luck

Appreciate the specific advice.

Florida is sounding good, especially if we could take a short cruise too from somewhere in Florida. Never been on one.

Happy travels! You will find some wind everwhere in the south. You should not have to winterize for most of the places we have been talking about. We have wintered in S. Ca, AZ, Texas and various southern states (LA, MS, AL and FL) for 4 years. We have a couple of nights in the low 30s and high 20s (that was in mid-New Mexico) and never winterized. Our rig is designed for 4 season use, however. We did unhook outside water source to avoid the hose freezing on some occasions (very few and far between, because we go there to avoid that need!)
And, I totally appreciate the Canadian humor, because we wintered in the Palm Springs area last year. When it was a pleasant low 60s, locals were wearing heavy winter coast and snow boots downtown!

New Mexico is my latest area of research. Its about 800KM (500 miles) less to get there than some other alternatives. Probably cooler but we are Canadians!

Short story: Had the good fortune to be in Peru a couple of years ago. Locals somehow always knew we were Canadian. Thought it was our accent. Asked nice lady at info center and she pointed to our shorts. Only then we noticed the locals in fur coats!
