Indianapolis seems really boring. In fact so does most of middle America. I do like corn though.

I live in Seattle and it doesn't have a winter. This year we got ZERO snow and all rain. Some years we get some snow, and every 10 years we get 12'', but usually our winters are 34 degrees and raining/cloudy all day.

Also, the summers can be nice... notice the world CAN. Sometimes we don't get above 70 degrees until late June. Usually no rain in the summer though. And summer is completely GONE by late-September. Summer is very short here. It's one of the main reasons our family is moving... the weather can make you depressed here.

The best months in Seattle to completely match what you think of a "season" is Fall and Spring. Summer and Winters here are VERY mild, and that is putting it lightly!

No humidity (when its not raining), but not dry either, so that is nice.

I probably wouldn't put Seattle in the Top 5 for cities you are looking for.

no kidding! We've had 2 incredibly hot and humid summers ... hoping it stays away this summer! Also, for people with allergies, Indiana isn't very good.

You're going to have to compromise on the 4 seasons, to be honest. My buddy who teaches in Boulder seems to dig the climate ... but they had a foot of snow last week ...

Reno is very dry in the summer, snows in the winter, and has a spring and fall.

A lot of people are mentioning Denver but I have to ask, because i grew up on the east coast, how is the change of season on the Front Range? I feel like the dry climate messes with the change of seasons. Wild temperature fluctuations year round, little vegetation to change from season to season.

Denver is more like a two-season city. Winter and Summer, and they're not discrete like the seasons in other areas. Winter weather and summer weather happen sort of randomly. You're more likely to get the weather associated with one season during the time of year that's it's supposed to happen, but there's no guarantee. You get 53.5 inches of snow a year, and 300 sunny days a year.

You get a week of spring in May and then a week of Autumn in September, and those seasons don't have anywhere near the colors that they do for east coast cities. Also, you better like wind. It is quite windy. Make no mistake the city is beautiful anyway and as far as summers and winters go, they're quite pleasant. Lots of sun, and low humidity. Despite the possibility of snow happening for 3/4ths of the year there are still a lot of sunny days with 60-70 degree highs all throughout that time.

In short, I don't think there is any city that fully satisfies your requirement.
