It depends when in spring, as late spring can already start to feel hot/humid in the deep south/desert Southwest while early spring in the far nothern states is practically an extension of winter. I'd say states like Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, southern Ohio/Indiana/Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Arkansas overall, with the deep south states best during the early spring. California is at its greenest and it is less rainy than winter but still not too hot yet in the interior and coastal fog season hasn't yet peaked. If you like rain, you'll love the Pacific Northwest's springs and to the OP, that's where you'll probably enjoy spring the most. Even Alaska has a decent spring being the sunniest season and while it still looks like winter on the surface (until breakup), it is quite refreshing after passing through the days of near total darkness and bitter cold to instead have a "crispy cold" yet with a good amount of sun. Hawaii doesn't have real seasons being in the tropics, but it has great spring weather as well.

I've never personally experienced anything more beautiful than an East Texas spring, and I've lived in Atlanta, so that's saying something.

I don't know, but you certainly can cross Colorado off the list lol! There is no spring in CO. It's just a fight between winter and summer! Take last spring for instance. It actually felt like spring in Denver in April with things greening up, flowers blooming, rainy days between lots of sunny days. By early May, the trees were green and I thought it actually felt like a real spring. And then on May 11, it snowed 4" (if it hadn't been 75 degrees the day before, it probably would have been closer to a foot, but most of it melted when it hit the ground) and tree limbs broke everywhere. Spring here is very frustrating.

North Florida has a very nice spring, in my opinion.

Oregon and Washington. It rains and rains and rains all winter, and then more spring showers creating a spectacular bloom and an abundance of greenery. I like how long and gradual spring is there as well.

I would say the best Spring in the country is an Appalachian Spring because flowering, deciduous Springs are the best, in my opinion.

So anywhere from northern Alabama to southeast Maine. But if I had to pick one state, New York, in particular the Hudson Highlands region.

But even Spring in New Mexico is nice, especially in the mountains.

True. There are years we go directly from summer to winter and vice versa. And years when you think we'll have an absolutely beautiful spring or fall and the snow hits in late May or mid-September
