Certain elevations in AZ and NM too.

Around 4000-5000 ft ASL is just about perfect.

I know that Denver,Cheyenne,SLC would not work since OP wants very little snow if any.Maybe somewhere like El Paso,Texas or Las Cruces, New Mexico could work because they have mild winters with little to no snow but idk if the summers would be too hot or not.

This all points back to the Pacific Northwest from Northern Cal to Western WA. Take your pick. While some consider me to be a "Washington" homer, I would actually recommend Eugene, OR in this case.

In case you are unaware of the PNW climates here are some of the major cities.
Seattle, WA
Tacoma, WA
Portland, OR
Salem, OR
Eugene, OR


This. Sacramento is about as good as it's going to get! Also Albuquerque as someone mentioned. Denver almost would work but there winters can be rough, and would never classify as mild. They do get tons of sunshine however. Maybe Asheville, NC.

I wouldn't call Sacramento mild in the summer. The average high is well into the 90's, and 100's are not uncommon.

I have lived all my life here in So. Cal (about eight miles inland from Seal Beach), and while the climate is generally mild, I dislike the lack of distinct seasons. Our fall is pretty short and basically just an extension of summer (a bit cooler though), and winter is mild with plenty of warm, sunny days. We average about 15” of rain in a normal year. It’s not uncommon for it to be 80°F on Christmas and/or New Year’s Day, which to some folks is great, but to me that sucks.

Anyways, for the longest time I have wanted to move someplace with four distinct seasons — not severe seasons mind you, but real, pronounced seasons. I wouldn’t mind a bit of snow and cold in winter and some hotter temps in summer, as long as each respective season is not severe and prolonged. Here in So. Cal, summer seems to last about 6 months each year, and the constant warm-ish, sunny weather gets old.

I do not like humid weather though, so I doubt I would like anywhere in the Deep South. And I think I would probably prefer a bit more cold than cold — but not Minnesota type of cold.

As far as 4 seasons go, are you okay with places that have all 4 seasons, but are they very lopsided? Again, CO has four seasons, but is weighted like: 6 months winter, 2 month springs, 4 summer, and 2 months fall. Winter goes on way too long in my opinion, and summers are very hot and dry.

It seems like the more you have all seasons, the more you have to be tolerant of extremes.

Update: I just saw the "very little snow" or none note. Definitely rules out CO!

Except that would be 14 months.

I'd say 6 months winter, 1 1/2 months spring, 3 months summer, 1 1/2 months fall

But it can also be 70 degrees on Valentine's Day, and snow on Mother's Day, so you never really know what you're going to get.
