The title says which 6 cities but I meant to say which 7 cities. I tried to go back and edit that but I was not allowed to edit the title. Oh well.

I like Philly and Chicago but they have too much weather. Four are too small, though actually all of them have positives. I voted Seattle though I'm a little biased since I live here. Seattle isn't quite big enough for me though.

None of these are ideal but I chose Cincinnati just because within THIS list it is the least cold and/or dreary. Pittsburgh would probably be second. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh are less "yuppie" and more down to Earth and laid back. Pittsburgh is cold and snowy though.

Philly average sunny days is 207
Minneapolis 198
Milwaukee 190
Chicago 189
Cincinnati 176
Pittsburgh 160
Seattle 152

So of these 7, Cincy and Pitt rank 5th and 6th, respectively in sunshine.

Philly also has the highest annual mean temperature of 55.85 degrees.
Cincy is 54.65
Pittsburgh is 52
Seattle is 51.95
Chicago is 49.65
Milwaukee 47.7
Minneapolis is the coldest at 46.15

Cincy at Pitt rank 2 and 3 in average mean temp.

I've never been to Minneapolis, Milwaukee or Pittsburgh. I'm pretty sure I'd like Minneapolis a whole lot in summer. And Pittsburgh has always kind of intrigued me.

I like Chicago, Philly and Cincy, but Seattle is a really nice city and the setting is so pretty. Plus, it seems very economically viable for a long time to come.

Seattle for this Southern boy!
