Default re: best weather

I am of the opinion that to call anything "the best" is to speak in relative terms. In this case the best weather would be relative to what type of conditions that you like to live in. If you don't like extremes. I would definitely say The Bay Area and particularly San Francisco (if you want cooler); Oakland or Berkeley which is about 5-7 degrees warmer and usually sunnier. If you like it a tad warmer I would agree with Southern California. I used to live in LA and the often thought that the weather was so good that you could bite it. I now live in San Francisco and appreciate the cooler weather because I walk more and don't sweat going up and down hills.

I think the I-25 corridor through New Mexico and southern Colorado is underrated with many more nice mild dry sunny comfortable days in a year than places like Phoenix or Houston and most of the southeast USA. I really can't think of anyplace better outside of CA. I guess the tradeoff is some rather cold evenings in winter..

Minnesota is full of bugs and humidity in the summer.

I find it quite interesting that so many people praise Florida's weather as if its the best in the world. I'm not one of them. Florida?? Best weather? Not even close. Its actually one of the worst because of the constant heat + humidity. But if that's what you prefer, all the power to you. I'd get tired of it pretty quick. I was in Miami in March a few years ago. The sun down in Florida is strong.
