Denver-all 4 are good, save a few bad days in winter and a few hot, hot (upper 90s, low 100s) in summer, but it's really known for winter, even though the action is in the mountains, 60 or so miles away.

I may have commented before, but beautiful video. Waiting on a certain someone to say Texas looks like that in the fall, except better

I'm surprised by all the Fall in Southern California love, because it's my least favorite season here. Around September the heat really cranks up just in time for back to school. It's blazing hot, dry as a bone, and most vegetation is brown. Santa Ana winds kick up, blow leaves and trash around and irritate your sinuses, and there are sure to be wildfires.

Every other time of the year is great here, but I loathe September and October.

Come to Denver for a week. Go to the mountains. Late September/early October is best for the mountains. It can be nice in Denver through November.

Yes, love Denver's seasons. There's 4 true seasons imo.

I go every year from Mid January to late February. I've been other times and yes, if there was ever a "down time" in NYC it's those two months or so after NYE and before St Patrick's Day.

You can say the exact same thing about Chicago really, not as crazy as NYC, but from New Year's to St Patty's we finally get the city back and to ourselves for a few months before all the tourists and visitors start showing up again on St Pattys day like clockwork.

Chicago is summer and fall. About 10 days ago someone flipped the switch into summer mode in the city. Everything is suddenly packed again, tourists everywhere, people on patios, outdoor cafes everywhere. I'm always a bit startled out quickly it hits every year. boom.

Chicago is unequivocally the best summer city in the country. I'll add NYC as a second option.

I'll take DC in the spring..Cherry blossoms, strolls in Georgetown.

Boston in the fall.. Sept 1 move in day, 250k college kids pack out the bars and restaraunts, and the foliage kind of any major metro.

Winter city? San Diego?

^^If you really want winter, as opposed to avoiding it, Denver. Weeks of warm (for the season), sunny weather between snowstorms. Average highs in January in the 40s, often in the 50s, sometimes hits the 60s.
