Four seasons for me but I wouldn't pick Chicago. I think the four seasons of Philadelphia would be about the right mix.

Miami is great for beach stuff but lets not act like its got much else outdoorsy. Yea you can hike in the "woods" sure, but you can do that anywhere else and you'd likely have prettier trees anyway.
There is no place in the USA (major city at least) where boating is as good as Miami. Los Angeles cannot compare, and certainly not Minnesota (even though there is boating in both places, it's just not on the same level).

From the countless man-made islands and keys, to the numerous foreign archipelagos worth exploring - if you spend even one hour inside while visiting Miami you're doing something wrong.

Granted there are no winter activities in Miami but the water/boating activities there are so strong that it's simply on some other plain when compared to the rest of the USA.

Chicago...it's not actually that bad. Ideally I'd prefer a more mild 4 seasons like Denver, but there are worst places climate wise like Fargo. Miami it's the humidity that's the issue.

I prefer 4 seasons. Albuquerque has been mostly unseasonably warm so far this fall and I'm so tired of it. I want real cold and our more normal temperatures already! It was just below average over the weekend with lows below freezing and highs in the low 50s, but highs on Thanksgiving are forecast to reach into the 70s. I will hate that! I love for Thanksgiving to be 62 degrees or less, at least cold enough to require a light jacket. A warm Thanksgiving is my idea of hell. It has gotten fairly cold overnight so the leaves have been falling and that gives a nice fall look, but the warmth of the day puts a damper on it for me.

I hate hot weather, so I’ll take the four seasons, and suffer through summer.

But no humidity.

Not saying you might not still pick Miami, but there is a huge difference.

I can see that if you are into boating. I'm into skiing so for my thing Miami sucks.

We get days from July to September that have humidity almost comparable to Dallas, when monsoon season is active, but it's hit and miss, as we get bone dry days mixed in

Heat Index and wind plays a bigger role in how 'hot' a place feels than humidity. It's just very hard to provide one quantifiable variable for them, so they're never included (the military does painstakingly include them).

In Singapore, it's often very cloudy so it never feels so bad, even though RH in this place is always around 80-90%. Even in humid US cities like Miami, RH is usually never above 80% unless it's about to rain.
