Which climate do you prefer? Most of America sits in a humid climate. For example, the Midwest, Northeast/East Coast, Southeast, Southern are all humid climates. Meanwhile, the Arid Climates are found mainly in the Northern and Southern Mountain West. Arid climates are also found in West Texas and inland off the coasts of CA, WA, and OR. Finally, Mediterranean climates in the USA are found on the coasts of California, Washington, and Oregon (cities like LA, SD, SF, SEA, POR). California is typically a sub tropical Mediterranean climate with little rainfall, while OR & WA are oceanic Mediterranean climates with more rainfall.

Despite growing up on the damp/humid coast of Massachusetts I am totally happy when the humidity is 1% here in the Grand Valley.

Downtownola,
Let's switch places . I'm close to Phila, NY, and DE 45 min from Atlantic City or Phila. I'd love to live there where it's dry.

Mediterranean. Why? Cuz too much humidity or too much aridity just sucks. Give me Nice, France's climate any day over Miami's or Vegas' climate.

Denver doesn't have a Mediterranean climate, the coastal areas of California, Oregon, and Washington do. Denver has a semi-arid/arid climate, very dry climate with little precipitation.
