I'd say the Northeast. It has the four seasonality of the Midwest, but it's a little bit milder and less prone to extreme events like hurricanes. The South is too hot and humid, the West is too arid and the Midwest a bit extreme for my taste. Somewhere like upstate New York is the perfect climate to me.

I would like to vote in this, but putting the entire West into one category (for climate) is extremely confusing. You have the mountains, the deserts, the Southern California coast, the Pacific Northwest, some Great Plains areas, and dozens of other microclimates that all differ from each other in a pretty extreme manner. Some I love, others I absolutely despise.

So, my vote goes to the Pacific Northwest.

Definitely the West. I'm from Florida and I am not a fan of humidity or bugs.

The regional options provided are too generalized and don't fully represent the options. The "South" for instance includes Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama and Arkansas each of which feature at least two (if not three) distinctly different climate zones. To lump them all into a "one size fits all" geographic designation that most would associate with extremes of heat and humidity for instance is pretty far from accurate.

Yeah, the higher elevations of the Appalachians is VERY different from the Deep South.
