Careful, because some places with impressive thunderstorms also get impressive-sized hail and flooding. I mean hail as big as baseballs.

The Mid Atlantic region:

Washington DC, north to New York City and Connecticut have relatively mild winters (some snow, but not bone chilling cold, at least not for many months), good thunderstorms (many per year, but without the threat of tornados), and many, many educational institutions, older, more "European-style" cities in architecture if not layout.

Are you trying to find a college? Think about Sul Ross State University in Alpine, TX. Again, it's not humid there (desert).

Oregon would be fun for you to visit. Go to Ashland, Oregon (Southern Oregon University) and go to the Shakespeare festival. Or, drive up the coast. The thing is, though, the coast is not known for thunderstorms.

Thunderstorms go hand in hand with humidity, I'm afraid.

Have fun!
I don't think there's anything Eurpoean about san Antonio.

North Carolina is beautiful - it would be a great trip for ESL students. You can visit the Smokies again, stop by the new tech companies in Raleigh/Durham, and lay on the beach in the Outer Banks.

And as for Tennessee (and North Carolina) in the winter, there are so MANY things to do, both inside and outdoors! Don't be afraid of a little cold weather - snow is wonderful! Besides, that area is known for mild winters compared to other parts of the U.S.

Oh - and ignore the poster above. As you saw, San Antonio, especially the River Walk area, has a very Spanish or Italian feel.

Monsoon season in Phoenix is awsome. Nothing better than sitting in your living room with all the windows open, listening and watching the rain pouring down.

I think Asheville could come close except for number 1.

You'll find it downtown but outside of that not really.
