Denver. You can experience all four seasons in one day.

Agreed. There are times in April/May when it can start out fairly warm/sunny in the morning, and then transition to clouds, rain, hail, then three inches of snow.

I can't speak much for other cities, but here, the seasons are distinct as can be. You can almost see the exact day that summer leaves and fall arrives. It's quite interesting. It works the same way, the exact day that you know it flipped over from spring to summer and from winter to spring.

(Winter) DEC, JAN, FEB - Cold, some snow, windy, bright sunny days, but again, COLD! Starts off nice in December with the Xmas stuff going on, and first snow fall, yay! snowmen! Then New Years!! Yay! Then Valentines Day rolls around and it's time to drop a bomb on winter and get it the hell out of there.

(Spring) MAR, APR, MAY - Arguably the worst chunk of weather for MN. Everyone is fed up with winter, it's wet, rainy, sloppy... but... summer is just around the bend!

(Summer) JUN, JUL, AUG - Perfect summer weather. Sunny days, thunderstorms at night, temps from high 60s to low 90s, lakes and fun. I love summers in MN. Nice humidity, heat, sunshine enough to go around.

(Fall) SEP, OCT, NOV - Arguably the best stretch of season in MN. September is beautiful, probably the best weather month in MN, blue skies, and refreshing temps compared to the 80s of August. October and the colors is gorgeous, Viking football and the weather is for jeans and long sleeves. November starts ok, but soon as Thanksgiving rolls around you know you're in for 90 days of hell.

It's kind of interesting. The biggest jumps in average tempuratures per month changes from Feb-Mar (Winter to Spring jump), May-Jun (Spring to Summer Jump), Aug-Sep (Summer to Fall Jump) and Nov-Dec (Fall to Winter Jump). So it's very obvious when switching from one to the next...

I'll take Summer and Fall all day long. You can keep winter and spring.... Having an early April birthday, my birthday parties as a kid growing up have seen building snowmen to going tubing in a lake and have done everything in between... Wacky weather!

For balanced 4 season weather I would pick Chicago. Probably New Jersey cities as well.

New York City, and Boston.

Examples for NYC and Boston: Two snow blizzards in February(6 months ago) with 1-2 feet of snow, Spring weather March and April, 90-100 degree temperatures for weeks in a row it seems like for May-August, and now there might even be a hurricane that will affect NYC or Boston within the next week>.<, and then fall weather October-November.

Looks like someone can be connected to nature while living in NYC because of the weather experiences.

Chicago. Not many places get to experience all the variety of weather we get. One day in winter can be Arctic, the next very pleasant. Summers can feel like Memphis for a few days, then like San Diego the next. Its a nice balance of weather that never ever gets boring, thats for sure.
