I'm looking for the most gorgeous, bluest skies in the US. When I say "bluest skies", that doesn't necessarily mean skies with the least cloud cover. I mean that some places have deeper, more saturated blue colors in their sky while others have pale, milky, light blue skies

The less humidity, the deeper the blue.

Maryland gets some deep blue skies in the fall, winter and spring.

However, less so in the summer as the haze picks up. Haze causes the blue to fade more than anything else.

When a relative moved to NC back in the early 90s, those were the bluest skies I had ever seen. I completely understood where the term Carolina Blue came from. Haven't seen that blue again since the mass migration to NC and the hazy clouds of car pollution that followed.

does humidity make a sky less blue? I remember Colorado skies being less blue than floridas.

The most striking blue sky I've ever seen was the sky in the American southwest. I just went through photos from that particular road trip the other day, and it reminded me just how gorgeous those skies were. I'm speaking mostly of the Phoenix area, but I recall photos from Flagstaff, and the SLC area having the same cobalt blue hue. Absolutely gorgeous.
