Hmmm. It is December 7, and Duluth is 3 degrees right now while Miami is a nice comfortable 70 degrees.

I still love Duluth, but wish I was in Miami today!

Ideal: NYC, LA, San Diego.

Bad: Miami, Atlanta, Anchorage, The Whole Midwest lol.

I don't really have a problem with NYC's climate, but during the winter I can't wait for summer. And during the summer I can't wait for winter. I also love LA and San Diego's climate. I'm just weird.

And in 3 months Miami will be hotter and more humid than a sauna and dealing with hurricanes, torrential downpours, stifling humidity, raunchy bugs, etc.

Im curious why everyone on this daggone site seems to think of winter only when it comes to weather?!?! All these people who think of places like Phoenix or Dallas or Miami or Charleston in the winter, strangely seem to forget about their raunchy conditions in summer.

No place is perfect.

I realize what they're like in the summer. The heat is worth it if that means mild winters. I like the heat, the same way some people like the cold. Generally, a place will either have: cold winters, warm summers or mild winters, hot summers. Unless you live in California, you have to pick one or the other. I like any temperature 70 or above, and I can handle down to 50. I want to live somewhere where I like the weather year round.

Ideal:

Sacramento: Climate with noticeable seasonal changes. Summers are hot but not humid-with pleasant evenings. Winters are short and a little bit of a cool relief. Sunshine for over 300 days a year.

Worst:

Watertown, NY: Constantly cloudy and dreary with long, brutally cold winters. Too much snow and summers are too short.

ideal: san diego

not good: anywhere that is too humid, anywhere that gets too cold, anywhere it rains too much and anywhere it is too dry.

sooo.... everywhere that is not san diego or the southern west coast.
