That's what I'm saying. It's more of a "comfortable humidity", not sticky sauna humidity like anywhere east of Colorado in summer.

And Denver is noticeably more humid in summer than winter. I find it comfortable in summer.

San Diego

Denver


In fact, San Diego's a lot closer to Miami
Then maybe the dew point is what's different. Because I've been to Miami many times and it's miserable I have never felt like I was in a sauna in San Diego. We moved to Denver from coastal Orange County, basically the same climate as San Diego. The humidity level rarely even touched on "sticky", the same way it is in Denver in summer. San Diego and Miami are no where near being the same climate. If someone were to fly from Miami to SD in summer (or winter), they'd feel cool to cold.

Unfortunately, yes it is. Historically (speaking as a native), it generally isn't humid. But the past few summers have been brutal in terms of both heat and humidity. The monsoonal flow that comes up from Mexico has parked itself over SoCal for weeks at a time, making it feel like we're in the tropics.

We have not one, but two professional lacrosse teams. One outdoor and one indoor.

The indoor version of Lacrosse has fighting like hockey. It gets big crowds here.

My favorite brewery in the country is a bit north of you now (Firestone Walker), but I would put Great Divide, Crooked Stave, and Avery up against just about anything. That being said I might trade one for Lost Abbey.
Yes they do and they are free and within walking distance of the Clear Creek takeout!

San Diego is definitely humid compared to Denver but if you ask a local San Diegan they would say it's dry here, then again they also think it gets cold here too! Having lived most of my life in Colorado, I dreaded the dry winters but in San Diego I rarely have to put lotion on and it's really just from over washing my hands. The second I step off the plane in Denver I feel like all moisture is sucked from my skin. After one night in Denver my nose was full of boogers and my throat was full of phlegm every morning. I don't miss any of that, though I do seem to have some allergy issues in CA I never had in CO. I came back to SD a few weeks ago from Denver and it felt noticeably humid (though nothing like Miami). I can't stand when I walk in the door and it feels humid in our house and bedsheets actually have a wet feel to them sometimes. We had to buy a De-humidifier here and it fills up quickly. I think because of the proximity to the ocean, with the little humidity they have here it really makes the nights cool down considerably and the wetness in the air is what makes it feel so cold. The ocean breeze doesn't help that either but I'll take it!

I found the humidity in Orange County to just be comfortable, year-round. Except for "Santa Ana conditions" where it was too dry.

I lived in San Antonio for a couple years, so nothing in the West will EVER seem humid after experiencing that sauna! Seriously, I'd start sweating just walking from my front door to the car.

I definitely notice it here in SD but it's nothing compared to Texas or Florida! I remember standing outside the Miami airport one summer thinking there was just no way I could adjust to that type of heat!
