People need to make up their minds about Missouri. One day it's the Midwest, another day the south. One day this city in MO is the south, but not that one.

But OK, Springfield, MO: July 25, 89 degrees

IMO, US 60 is the divider, so Springfield, Joplin, Branson are in the South

Well fine! I already listed St.Louis and Kansas City. My point stands. The Midwest has some cities with hot summers.

Summer weather in upper MI definitely averages in the 70s. July is the hottest month with the average BARELY touching 80 degrees. June, August, and September are 70s and even 60s.

We used to go up to the UP in the summer and its absolutely the best summer weather in the lower 48.

Why Iron Mountain when you could have picked Marquette (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marquette,_Michigan). Average highs are in the mid 70s for July and August and upper 60s for June and September.

I don't know if I'd classify this as the best summer weather - if you're a cool summer person, anywhere along the Pacific coastline above the point of conception will be cooler. San Francisco averages in the mid-upper 60s for all summer months except September when it averages 70.

If you're like me and 70s is a bit too cool for summer - too cool to get in a pool, too cool to swim etc, then you will prefer something warmer. I think average high in the mid 80s is ideal summer weather.

I always found the weather up there to be ideal for my tastes (while on vacation at least). For hiking and biking through the UP, it was absolutely ideal. Same went for sitting on the beach, enjoying the breeze w/o having to sweat or jump in the water to cool off. Clear water, deep blue skies, temps in the upper 70s.... ahhhh.... it was a slice of Heaven on Earth.

Now, visit the UP in winter. I like it better, fewer tourists, and deeper snow. I plan on retiring there, and have been through most of the Northwoods over the last few decades.

OP asked about major midwestern cities in post #1. UP of Michigan, International Falls and Duluth MN, etc, don't count.

That is true. The largest city in the "Northland" is Duluth, MN, however. You can get to the Northwoods from the Twin Cities in one hour of driving, though.
