If that two months of summer rattled your cage, you'd be crying like a little girl after an Orlando summer of 85-90 degrees plus 60%-90% humidity from May-October.

Philly actually gets more humid than DC, NYC, and Baltimore.

New Orleans: Extremely humid most of the year with little access to beaches.

NYC: Very cold winters, humid summers, pollen filled springs where everyone gets sick, rough seasonal transitions in general.
San Francisco has beautiful summer weather. It rarely gets above 75 degrees. Always comfortable.

I remember being in Oakland for a day last August, right on the Bay, and it was great, blue dome sunny sky and temp around 70F

That would get old really quick.

I was there in summer one year and I had to buy a sweatshirt off a street vendor.

Relative humidity doesn't mean much in terms of comfort; it is the dewpoint that signifies how "muggy" conditions will feel. Both DC and Baltimore are muggier than Philadelphia, having a larger span of the year where such conditions are present:

Span for muggy period:
Philadelphia: 3.9 months
DC: 4.1 months
Baltimore: 4.0 months

Percentage of time with mugginess within the span:
Philadelphia: 15%
DC: 17%
Baltimore: 15%
