How near to the ocean would one have to be to see these temperatures? Also, I'm not a big fan of lots of sunshine.

I would say within a mile or two from the ocean.

We barely saw mid 70s on the coast for most of this summer down here in San Diego- also, as coastal CA locals know, the coast is frequently overcast in the summer when just 500 yards away it may be sunny. Usually the 2 mile zone is very coastal and it is increasingly sunny and hot inland.

To the OP I'd like to say I'd give just about any city on the list a go, but since I haven't experienced a winter in Chicago or a summer in Houston or Miami (by choice-I loathe humidity and could live without sub-zero temps) and since I'm not rich and no longer young and beautiful (HA!) I think I am limited to LA, Philly and Boston, maybe Dallas but it doesn't seem like my type of city- walkable, urban and somewhat dense.

That I could probably handle.

I remember the summer of 2010 was pretty cold and overcast.

None. I don't want to live in a heavily populated area. In general, I am not a fan of people.

Aww, I just came to post this. I abhor big cities, so none of the above.

Boston or Philly. I like being close to major east coast cities. Unfortunately, so do other people and now I can't afford to live there.
