I couldnt agree more because I have to live in a place with 4 seasons, but it all depends on what the individual likes. I don't think there can be a right or wrong answer to this question.

NOT OMAHA! We get the harshest of all the seasons... I went to Anaheim once and every day when we left the hotel it was hard to tell we had left the beautifully airconditioned lobby. So I'd probably throw a vote behind So. Calif. if i didn't like seasons and challenging weather so much.

I'm going to go with the contrary here. haha.

I'm going to say Des Moines or Omaha because of the interesting weather.

Winter is windy, cold, and snowy - very harsh. Spring is pretty when everything is BRIGHT green - and that ushers in the severe thunderstorms and tornadoes of late spring and summer which is always exciting. Summer is hot and humid - and fall is just beautiful.

I probably wouldn't mind SoCal weather either though.

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.
Absolutely, along with Santa Barbra.
Unfortunately the fires make it there too.

San Francisco IMO has an absolutely HORRIBLE climate. 50-55 degree, foggy summers? No, thank you. The thing about SF is that even though it doesn't rain much, it still manages to gloomy and uncomfortably chilly a fair amount of the time.

Where do I sign up?
^^^^ that looks really nice. lol. Having lived in SF, yes it is cool, but 50-55 degrees is not common summer temps. May and June are foggy, but it is sunny much of the year.

I like it here in San Antonio. It's hot in the summer, but there are hotter places, and deffinately more humid ones. I'd love to have 4 seasons, but I think generally people see it as "the grass is always greener on the other side". Overall I hear alot of negatives about the heat at times, but I don't hear too many people complaining about wanting to move away because of the weather. I also love the rain in the New Orleans area, but deffinately not good durring hurricane season.

Amen to that sister!!!!!!

As for best weather, I have to say Nashville's weather is pretty darn nice to me. You get all the seasons but not to extreme and the geography there is one of the best I have seen in all of America.
