How big of an area are you looking for? Marquette, MI fits your temp profile perfectly. Average highs are 76 in July which is the highest month and it only averages 3 days a year above 90 (one each in June, July & Aug.) Population of 21,000.

Sault Ste. Marie, MI has a high average of 76 as well in July with an overall daily temp of 65 for July. It only averages 1.5 days a year above 90. The population is around 15,000. There are quite a few places in the UP of Michigan along the Lake Superior shore that have beautiful cool summers, COLD winters, and are just beautiful year-round.

I agree.

I'd also add NE Minnesota to your list (places like: Duluth or International Falls)

Also very high elevation towns in western US (Like: Aspen, Vail, Telluride, and Leadville in Colorado)

My only question is why
It hits over 80 in Flagstaff in the summer for sure but it might be a close fit other than that. The winters are not that snowy and cold overall - some days it can be warm and sunny, others frigid and snowy.

Everyone likes different things (thank goodness, or the world would be rather boring). Some people feel hot and like the cold, and others feel cold and like the heat (like me, except when I'm having hot flashes ). I'm glad it's that way or everyone would be living in the hot places (or cold places) and it would be very crowded, not to mention the real estate prices would be horrendous!

PS I'll still pick the warm places, hot flashes and all!!!

It gets pretty hot IMO in the Twin Cities in the summer and is humid. I didn't think of Duluth, but that would be a really good choice!

The upper peninsula of Michigan probably best describes what you are looking for. Lots of snow fall with actually somewhat warmer,more comfortable winter temps than most areas in the upper midwest. Most areas enjoy average daytime highs in the 70's in the summer and rarely reaching 90's. Very very low cost of living but has very limited jobs as well.

I'd probably add the North Country of Upstate NY(Adirondacks, 1000 Islands, etc.). Here are some average monthly temperatures for a couple of cities in that part of NY:Moderator cut: link removed, competitor site

Hi. I'm looking for a place that has a July high of 80 F and a January High of 20 F. I love snow but not too many blizzards. I like to be near water but don't like hurricanes. I don't like very high sun angles but I don't want to live in Alaska either.

Warm (not hot) summers and cold winters are big for me. I hate heat waves but love warm days. I don't mind cold but anything below -5 F is pushing it.

Not in a big city but not in a small town either, about 25,000 to 100,000 people.

I like suburbs, safe town, not crime ridden ghetto.

Help me on this one.

Fairbanks can get as high as 90 in the summer, but winters are brutally cold, so Anchorage would probably be your best bet.
