I would love for Godzilla to come to Florida, but something tells me that might not even be an option unless it lands in Miami.
I personally can see Godzilla hitting the west coast. What they should do in the film is have Godzilla appear first in Japan, then be held responsible for problems out at sea. Then have Godzilla attack the US. In that case, just about any city in California is fair game.
Something I would like to see is Godzilla heading up the Mexican coast in the dead of night and stomping through the Mexican-American border. Then it can make its way north. Godzilla just disappears, no one wants to believe Godzilla's in the US without being spotted - then have it attack, I dunno, San Francisco in broad daylight without any warning at all.
Truthfully, the west coast is a better idea than the east in the long run. If not for the whole thing about it being nearest to Japan, at least it can give a bunch of Japanese references. Several cities have their own little Nihonmachi sections (Japantown), so having an Japanese cast blended in with Americans wouldn't be a problem. The three official "Japantowns" that I know of are in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and I think San Jose. I think NYC has a sort one as well, but New York has been destroyed so many times that I am frankly sick of seeing it. Give me some new scenery to watch be obliterated.
