I say 65. I normally never have the temp in my house above 63 in the winter or 70 with the AC running in summer. I love cool weather. Anything above 80-85 and I start getting extremely uncomfortable.

I'm right there with this person. In the 60's is too chilly when the wind blows for me so yes upper 70's right on through the 80's. Maybe 92' with low humidity.

I voted 65, but really, it's anything between 55 and 65. It just depends on the time of year and whether or not the sun is out. I love it when the sun is out and it's 55 - you get the warmth from the sun, but still the briskness of the temperature.

If it's cloudy, then 65 is better. I get to stay cool, but I don't get too cold, or too hot.

Another 65 here. 65-70 is perfect. 75 is fine. Once 80 and above, I start sweating. I hate the heat, can't wait to get out of the south!

85 degrees or above without humidity. Dry heat is the best.

It's in the 60's now. Really comfortable with these long days. Sun is hot, but the shade is nice and cool. Supposed to get to the low 80's this weekend, I'm afraid the locals will be complaining about the heat...

Honestly, I could go with Savannah in the summer, or Chicago in the winter. I have other things I care about rather than temperature.

Anything below 70 is too cold for me. I like 80F the best.
