Here's a list of places I know.

Southern California
South Florida
South Texas
Gulf Coast

South Florida

Are there anymore places where you can just wear a Tshirt and shorts all year?
"All year" as in "365 days a year"? Not quite. I mean, you could, but you'd eventually get sick.

Right? Hawaii and MAYBE South Florida. Even Southern California and Texas get too cold for shorts for awhile.

Even in California and the Desert SW, there are times in the year (mainly the winter time) where highs may not get out of the 60s, which IM is too cold for t'shirts and shorts.
Not even, South Florida is subject to cold snaps. I remember when it was 36 degrees in West Palm one year, might've even gotten that low this year.

True, but it's not normal.

The average highs/lows per month in Miami are...

January: 75/59
February: 77/60
March: 79/64
April: 82/68
May: 85/72
June: 88/75
July: 89/76
August: 89/77
September: 88/76
October: 85/72
November: 80/67
December: 77/62

Ansrew is pretty simple--- Outside of Hawaii of course. I'd say ur next best bet is south Florida-- anywhere from Miami down through the Florida Keys one could get away with wearing shorts and tees year round.

Anywhere south of I-20 and South of Santa Cruz on the Cslifornia Coast plus Hawaii.

Key West even has chilly days now and then where shorts are probably not the best option. Hawaii is the only state where you can truly get away with it with minimal discomfort.

While you might feel very uncomfortable, I don't think there is really any health risk to going out wearing shorts when the weather is in the 50s (as long as you stay dry and there is no wind, a naked human can survive exposed to the elements as low as 36 degrees).

Hell, some guy recently did an informal study which suggested you can lose weight without trying by wearing less clothing in the winter (as your body burns more calories trying to keep you warm), so there might be some health benefits to going around with too little clothing in cold (but not sub-zero) temperatures.

Bottom line is while you might look stupid, you could go around wearing shorts all year anywhere it didn't get below freezing ever.

The High Desert Can get very cold (20s), too.

I think the only place in the USA where it is shorts and t shirts all year would be Hawaii and South Florida.
Fair enough, the coast does tend to get a lot colder than where I live (La Habra), even Fullerton just to the south of us is always a couple degrees cooler.

I live in Southern California, and no way is this true for this part of the country. January/February can be borderline freezing. And I'm right on the coast (Orange County).

I would say only Hawaii, and South Florida. San Diego comes close, but not quite. OC and LA, no way.
