San Diego has more of a Mediterranean climate rather than tropical.

So it's pretty much South Florida and Hawaii.

I actually forgot Honolulu. You know being that it is so far. I should have put that instead of San Diego but I know San Diego has moderate weather year round, but your correct about the Mediterranean climate! My mistake!

In the United States if you would have put Honolulu the I would have gone with it, but you didn't specify on whether if it has to be major U.S. city or just any city in the U.S. if that's the case then Key West is warmer than Miami, thus making it more tropical.
Miami probably gets colder in the winter than honolulu as well... I disagree on Miami being a "tropical city" at least climatological wise due to the fact that the ity of Miami and it's suburbs did receive snow in January of 1977 and it has gotten below freezing several times in the city of Miami, and as far as I'm concern no true "tropical" city goes below freezing ever...
so it is most certain that Miami is one of the warmer cities in the U.S. but not Tropical... I did vote for Miami since I didn't see the "other" option and from the above choices it is listed there and I guess is one of the closest cities the U.S. has to the being somewhat "tropical"
but for the "other" option If it's a major city you want then I would say Honolulu If it could be any city then I would go with Key West, FL

Honolulu by far. Miami would be the closest, but it isn't exactly tropical. Los Angeles and San Diego are definitely not tropical.

Honolulu and Miami. San Diego and L.A. are hardly tropical by any sense of the word.

Must say you are incorrect about saying Miami is not a true tropical climate it is. Key West and Honolulu do have higher average temps but Miami is still very much tropical.


Yes Miami does have cold spurts but it has only gone below freezing a few times recorded history and the snow fall in 1977 was part of a once in 50 year storm and there was zero accumulation.

Looking at Miami's weather stats on a yearly average it is in a tropical climate. Miami's rainfall is high enough and its average temps are too. Now the west part of South Florida is aTropical Savanna climate while other the east part is a tropical monsoon climate since it is a bit more dry in the winter. But Miami is definitely a true tropical climate and not sub-tropical like most of Florida and the Southeast.

I would put lower Louisiana in their as well when humidity is 100% as often as it is. Louisiana is more jungle than tropical though.
