Yep. Many do not realize that Atlanta sits nearly 1,100 feet above sea level and has a more moderate summer climate (and humidity) than most other major cities in the American South.

Cincinnati. It's very much a four-season metro, but no longer blitzed by huge snowfalls or inches of ice. Don't even think about sledding, ice skating or building a snowman here; you'll be sadly disappointed.

Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, Greensboro-Winston Salem, Richmond and Nashville would all qualify.

A lot of posters have said Cincinnati and I agree, a truly four season city with little to no snow. Cinci gets just enough snow/sleet each winter to remind you that it's winter, but the weather is actually very mild. Other contenders would be Nashville, Atlanta, Charlotte, Louisville and St. Louis.

Totally agreed. Cincy reminds me of Seattle in many ways. Some snow, but usually not enough to cause problems. Also, both cities are known for their seven hills. And both are known as "Queen Cities". Kind of kindred spirit between the two! And we could get into Ken Griffey Jr., but that would be a stretch.

ABQ can sometimes have bitter cold winters since it is a mile above sea level, but the aridity means that snow usually sublimates within a day.

I have to laugh at the people naming places like North Georgia, Cincinnati, and Portland; these places are far from mild in winter, so the fact that they are being named shows that Americans have no idea what moderate weather truly entails.

Aside from the obvious...Seattle and Portland...Nashville doesn't get too much snow. Summers can be hot, in the 90s, but air conditioning is a thing there (unlike in Seattle where 80 degrees is miserable without AC).
