I live in north Florida now and I do love the weather most of the time, but I miss some snow and I certainly miss the crisp fall weather with changing leaves and deep blue sky.

What is the consensus on which region has the most distinct seasons (all four are represented in true form: summer lush, fall crisp, winter snow, spring rain and flowers.

Also, in which region are the seasons most evenly proportioned? Ie, roughly 4 months each.

I get bored with the same old weather. While I love Florida for many things I am craving great seasons.

upstate Ny cities such as Buffalo, Rochester , Syracuse and Albany.
summer usually lasts from the end of may to early september. fall is usually mid september to november. winter is usually december to march. spring is usually late march/early april to late may.

Southern New England would come pretty close. Forget northern New England though.

Cool, I've not really investigated that part of the country. Thanks for the tip.

I would say that a place like Charlottesville, VA, or Washington, D.C. has very evenly proportioned seasons. This is a pretty subjective question, though.

Boone, NC. I'd also say Durango, CO except that summers there are more sunny & dry rather than lush.
