I believe it depends on what part of the state if we're talking about the south. I am from the southern part of Louisiana and do not like that humid heat in places like New Orleans and Houston. The other thing I don't like about that tropical climate is the abundance of mosquitoes. IMHO, the drier heat with less humidity in North Georgia/Atlanta though hot, is not as bad. If you go down to South Georgia/Savannah, Alabama/Mobile, Mississippi/Gulport-Biloxi etc., like South Texas & South Louisiana close to the gulf, same story humid as hell.
