In terms of statistical areas with at least one million people, what are some metropolitan areas that have mild winters and ideally pleasant weather? Such a place would ideally have adequate resources in various aspects of life... Please exclude Florida, Texas, and California. Thank you.

Seattle and Portland are the obvious choices. Borderline: Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Detroit, though the last three can be snowy.

Detroit: hell no! I've lived there for almost my entire childhood (and counted down the days till I left this snowy hellhole for college.) It can get blistering hot during the summer and freezing cold in the winter. There are so many better options around the country for less snow and milder weather!

Point taken. I was looking at some midwest cities that offer both little snow and not extremely hot. Detroit does have some hot days, but nothing compared to areas to the south. Snowfall, yes, you are correct, that is why I called it "borderline".

Detrioit would be classified as "extreme". Borderline would be something along the lines of St. Louis, Nashville, Seattle, Birmingham, Oklahoma City, etc.

Indeed. While Atlanta is infamous for its occasionally paralyzing snowstorns, it doesn't get nearly as miserable in the summertime as most of the rest of the country believes. For 6-8 months out of the year, weather in North Georgia is remarkably pleasant.
