True, but there's also summer days in Gatlinburg where the low is in the 60s where in the rest of the south its over 75.

If you're really outdoorsy though, you won't avoid going outside cuz of snow. Snow means winter hikes, skiing, and cold weather in general opens up possibilities of ice skating.

My personal pick for myself is Minnesota. Warm but not too hot in summer, perfect for camping as its cool enough to sleep at night comfortably. Winters that allow for Canadian-type winter activities that are unavailable in much of the country due to inconsistent ice or snow. For you, west coast. Oregon is an outdoorsy paradise.
I've heard horror stories about the mosquitoes, though.
