You listed Salt Lake. Denver and Salt Lake have similar climates, Denver's is actually somewhat better IMO (a little less snow, a little cooler in summer and warmer in winter). Both are arid, 300+ days of sunshine, snow in wintertime that melts almost as fast as it falls. Better than some other locales on the list. BTW, I chose San Diego.

By a mile... if you ignore that coastal Los Angeles gets identical weather.

Similar, but not identical.

The topography, currents, proximity to Baja, Gulf of California, tropical storms, mountains and deserts are going to have some affect.

But I'd agree with you that I bet Redondo Beach is cool and cloudy today like we are.

Believe it or not, there are people who like cold weather. Denver and Albuquerque are favorites for people who like varied weather and four seasons, because they get so many sunny days and the weather isn't the same all the time--which gets boring.

I would personally vote for Asheville, NC. A nice balance of four seasons. A bit warmer than the US average, but cooler than the rest of the southeast, and gets more sunlight than the northeast. Less muggy than the sea level cities in the mid-atlantic, but still humid and not desert dry--and that prevents the extreme highs and lows that the mountain cities in the west tend to get.

Or a summer in San Francisco! Best weather? Honolulu! Windows open year round.
