Yes, New York and Philadelphia are just as good as Boston is in the fall. All three are very old, walkable and full of foliage. They also are fueled by college students and that whole academia vibe which is awesome.

All three are in the same peak foliage zone as well. Boston's colors turn with New York and Philadelphia because of it's coastal location.

Springs and Falls, definitely Atlanta, Georgia where they are long and lovely with bowers of flowers (spring) and gorgeous colorful leaves (fall).

Summer, hmmm

Let's say Highlands, North Carolina for summer (high elevations, mild summer)


winter, Hey, lets go back to Highlands where they get some snow, but its not too frigid!

The criteria they were supposed to meet:

General: dry, clear and crisp air, sunny or clouds ok if they are white and puffy and they don't kill the sun, rain good if it's short, close to none gray muggy days, over 70 degrees with exceptions ok.

1. Spring - see general criteria.
2. Summer: not many days over 90, higher latitude for more daylight. Plus general criteria.
3. Fall - see general criteria
4. Winter: lower latitude for more daylight. Plus general criteria above.

How wants to help me narrow them down?

I'll do summer because it's easier
Northern latitude means: Seattle x4, Berkeley Ca and Portland Main. I guess because Seattle was mentioned 4 times, it could win summer. What do you think? Any arguments that it shouldn't?

We have different ideas on what makes a great Summer or Winter

But for Fall, Vermont or NH are the absolute best--can't beat the colors and the weather is crisp.

Based on your criteria:

1. Spring: Tucson
2. Summer: Seattle.
3. Fall: San Diego
4. Winter: Key West. (Not Honolulu because it's mostly above 80 and I tried to find places that remained in the 70s and taking into consideration your daylight requirements).
