That would be awesome to have a home in a different location for each season. It would definitely be expensive though, especially in the locations you've listed.

But if you spent fall in California, you wouldn't get all the benefits of a real fall like the rest of the country

Gold Coast Chicago. I love the old homes there and the access to beaches on Lake Michigan.

Greenwich Village.

A condo in South Beach for vacations.

Minneapolis is one of my favorite cities in America. Not dull at all. Very balanced and probably best value-for-your-money city in this country.

I would absolutely LOVE to live in a townhouse in Washington, D.C. or a big flat in Seattle would be great too. Basically either washington would work for me!

I figure if I'm rich enough to have seasonal residences, I'm probably rich enough to have those seasonal residences.

I find fall a little sad, actually. I like rising temperatures, not falling ones. But that's mostly just because it means winter is coming, so maybe I'd like it more if I didn't have winter. I guess I could swap New York and Santa Monica.

I think fall is the worst time to be in SoCal (still too hot, dry, winds, wildfires), and spring is the best, so I'd swap them too.
