Alpine, California (San Diego)...30 minutes east of San Diego, up in the mountains. A little warmer during the day, a little colder during the night (and you actually get thunderstorms at times)...Perfect. The old western mountain men thought it was the perfect oasis, and pretty much heaven on earth, before they made the descent down to the coast. The people are really cool as well...Different than the SD crowd. Much more down to earth. JT.

Default San Francisco, Portland OR, New York City

Based on my experience, I would say San Francisco has a near perfect climate and weather because it usually does not get too hot and it does not get so cold that you are freezing so much. Where else in the US can you have summer weather in the 60s, cool and crisp? SF is tough to beat.

Portland, OR also has great weather because the rain makes the air so clean. Too many people will say the constant cloudiness and overcast weather conditions are horrible but the truth is they are NOT. Cold, cloudy weather makes me feel much better mentally and physically I just feel fresher. Winters are chilly but not anywhere near -40F.

New York has to be counted among those in which the weather should be considered fairly decent except for the summer(if it gets humid). I like the idea of 4 seasons because at least you get to see a change. NYC is often given negative remarks for its winters and I don't know why. If we look at the average temperatures for NYC compared to Chicago, Des Moines or Minneapolis, NYC winters are FAR better. I've had people tell me NYC winters are not that bad. Overall I'd say New York is one of the cities that should be given more praise for its climate rather than looked down upon

Florida is #1 in the Weather department.

I love Tampa's heat & storms, Orlando too, I haven't been to Miami yet but I can't wait for the warmth in the Winter .

Does the ISS count as a city, or a state?

If so, that's my vote.
