The average low in July and August where I grew up, Walnut Creek/Eastbay, is 55. San Diego's coldest temperature ever recorded in July is 55 and August its 57.
Yeah, the bay area has great temperatures. I was speaking of points inland. I live in the foothills and summer heatwaves can last for weeks, and can be pretty nasty at night. I can't imagine what it's like in Redding when day time temps climb to 115. I'm sure some of the folks from Arizona or inland Southern California know.

South Florida.

Most summer nights in Southern California are too cool for my tastes. For me summer is about heat with or without humidity. I enjoy summer nights that do not fall below 70 or 75. I spent a decent part of the summer of 2006 in Southern California, when they were experiencing record heat and persistent humidity that it usually confined to the east. That summer was very nice, as temperatures in the LA Basin were routinely in the lower and mid-70s at night with relatively high humidity. If summers in Southern California were routinely like the summer of 2006, my answer would be different.

I actually prefer summer humidity to the "dryness" because it makes it feel much warmer at night.

Cool, mild, dry..... not for me..... Hot and humid all the way!

The Florida bug problem is way overhyped, I've been bitten much worse in the North by bugs than in Florida....
This is exactly why I chose Florida nights over SoCal nights .

Never been to S. Ca., but N. Ca. summer nights are a thousand times better than Florida's.

Give me humidity and bugs anyday over, the ever-present chance of a massive earthquake.

Why do we have to create ridiculous juxtapositions for things that are so obvious? Is this an attempt to bolster our delicate egos?.
What would this look like if I asked to compare South Florida Winter Nights vs Southern California Winter Nights? Sheesh.

In So.Cal It's Dry,Almost never Rains at Night,No big bugs to worry about,and Generally Warm all night,not to warm or cold,Kids play outside till 12AM,I Don't have to wear a Sweater at night b/c it's very comfortable.

I Don't know about Florida but in CA time Flies in Summer when I think it's 8pm it's 11Pm.I Prefer a nice Laid Back Summer night in Ca with a nice BBQ in my Backyard.
California and you summed it up nicely...

you cant be paranoid about something that may or may not happened in your lifetime, 4 mill. angelenos are living proof, although some of those transplants might not know what to expect when it finally happens
