If you could split your time between *anywhere* in the U.S. for summers and winters, what 2 areas would you choose?

I live in San Diego and I plan to stay living here for winter/spring. But I'm looking for where I want to live summers/falls. I'm single and have a telecommuting job that allows me to live anywhere.

My choices:

Winter: San Diego

Summer: (here are some areas I'm considering) Maine Coast, Burlington VT, Whitefish Montana, Aspen Colorado, Telluride Colorado, Sun Valley Idaho, Lake Tahoe area, Cape Cod Mass.

...I love the mountains, this is why so many mountain areas on my summer hit list.

Winter: Honolulu

Summer: San Diego, but if that wasn't an option then NYC.

Summer is really nice along the Maine coast. It doesn't get nearly as hot and humid as most places in the country, and it's always very pleasant at night. It usually gets in the upper 50s or low 60s at night there during the summer, so it always cools off. I lived there for a couple years. It's very nice walking around Portland during the summer too. I recommend it.
