I think it all depends on which recreational pursuits you are into. Florida would be great for people that enjoy the beach and/or Disney.
Tennessee would be awesome for those that love country music and mountians.
North Carolina would be appeal to those that are into history as well as beautiful beaches.
As for me I'll take one of each please!!! Actually, personally since I still have kids at home FL would be my pick IF I had to choose one!

If you want a more urban feel with some good investment possibilities, you can't overlook Nashville's changing downtown. One of the most intriguing urban developments is an old hospital conversion which overlooks the Cumberland and our skyline called "Rolling Mill Hill."
Your benefits with Tennessee (especially Nashville) investment are (1) affordable prices to give you the most for your $$$ (2) geographic diversity whether it be lakes, mountains or city living for you to enjoy yourself to the fullest and (3) a healthy market which means your investment has a good chance of looking better $$$ over the years!
