i am very familiar with the forest fires. if san diego is considered humid to people in vegas and phoenix, and i have lived in az and am currently in south carolina... which is very humid during the summer, do you see why i would see san diego as perfect?

az---->san diego---->sc
dry--->perfect--->humid

Ideal climate would be Chicago, Cleveland, Michigan Coast, Buffalo, Rochester summers (late April through mid October) Best weather in the nation HANDS DOWN during that period and Houston, Tampa or Corpus Christi for the other months.

Bad climate would be phoenix or Vegas (who wants to live in a oven for 6 months?)

What's up with all these people naming places that are warm all year round? I would hate to live in a place that doesn't experience seasons. I like living here in Memphis because we have distinct seasons, but the summers are a little too hot & long and the winters could be colder & snowier. I guess the perfect climate for me would be a place like St. Louis or Louisville. They seem to have a good balance.

Ideal: Northern New England, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin... sort of in that order.

Not Ideal: Anywhere on the West Coast, anywhere in the Southwest, anywhere in the Southeast, and most parts of anything west of the Great Plains.
Montana and Idaho might be okay, but they could be a little too dry for me.

In my opinon there is no "perfect" climate because a city/state that has a perfect, mild but warm winter might have a blistering, hot, humid summer so it makes sense to make a best and worst list for summer and winter

Best Summer: San Diego, Jersey Shore, Orange County California, basically anywhere its warm but has access to a beach and is cooler at night

Worst Summer: Houston, New Orleans, Fort Myers-Naples, Memphis, anywhere that has insane 90+humidity and temperatures 90+

Best Winter: West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Naples/Fort Myers
Worst Winter: North/South Dakota, Minnestota, Chicago, Boston, Maine, etc.

I really enjoyed the weather in Salt Lake City when I lived there for about a year. Summer was hot, but not humid, quite comfortable. Winters were cold but not humid so it didn't feel very cold. I spent a lot of time playing in the snow. I've never seen such deep blue skies either.
