I honestly love Seattle, but the summers aren't very warm, and that's a major criterion for me.

If your wanting big city and mild winters but still a taste of it then Dallas would do as would Austin except the mass transit is lacking there. There are TONS of great areas in Dallas that are walkable to mass transit, restaurants, shops, etc. Winter days can go from being high of 30's on one day to low 70's a few days later. Our mid 50's days are pretty awesome and very warm, might need a light jacket when heading out in the morning but by mid morning you have shed it. We don't pack up our summer clothes around here . The only time it is in the 50's and 60's and not great is when the wind is coming out of the north. We do have a lot of wind though. Restaurants galore from the upper end to local dives. Name your poison and you'll find plenty to pick from.

If you want something a bit smaller that has a lot of charm I'd even say Savannah, Georgia. Lots of great restaurants, easy place to walk in the downtown area to shops and restaurants. Character for sure.
