Monterrey County, CA
Cooler than so Cal with more foggy days.
Cooler average temperatures with LESS in the way of Santa Ana winds/hot days.
The Coast Ranges also modify the climate in the surrounding areas!
The reason I pick this area of CA is because it is a little less arid than areas further south which I dislike.

I still prefer Hawaii - but it's just too darned expensive, so...

...the fact of the matter is we've bought retirement property in SE Arizona - which actually has a very similar climate to that which is mentioned for El Paso. Look at the climate for places like Sierra Vista and Benson - both of which have climate nearly the same as that listed for El Paso. Benson is a couple of degrees warmer in the winter (and nearly the same in the summer). Sierra Vista is a about 5 degrees warmer in the winter and a couple of degrees cooler in the summer. This is quite a bit cooler from the blastfurnace that is SW Arizona.

After Southern California (which again is just toooooo expensive (and too crowded)) I do think that that section of the country has probably the best weather in the continental US.

One of the best climates in the US in terms of a mild four season climate is western North Carolina. It never gets that hot in the summer or two cold in the winter. The Appalachians moderate the climate and the spring and fall seasons last a little longer compared with other areas of the US.

If you're looking for four seasons and LOW humidity, try Denver. Not as much snow as you'd think.

60 inches a year is a lot more than I thought. For comparison Chicago avg. 38 inches and NYC receives 22.

Snowfall - Average Total In Inches

Considering some people think we are up to our hips in snow for six months, I don't think 60" is that much.

Default the best wx

The best wx is muted, 4-season wx.

[muted = summers not brutally hot, winters not brutally cold]
[4-season = A taste of real winter and summer and spring and fall]

Warm, muted, 4-season wx = Albuquerque, Silver City, Prescott
Cool, muted, 4-season wx = Flagstaff, Denver, Boise

San Diego. No contest. For the Miami guy that claims all summers are HOT- you are wrong. In California it is warm, dry and very pleasant.

Well, maybe, but I find Seattle's measily 7" to be way too much.

Practicality aside, Hawaii by a mile (wish all questions in life were that easy). Not sure it's really fair to compare it to the rest of the US though.
