August, nice warm days and nights with the average high around 78 and low of 68. And its usually when water temps peak and there is a little humidity so its not too dry and cool looking thunderstorms over the mountains to the east.

May and June are absolutely the WORST months in coastal Southern CA imo b/c of all the overcast and cool weather, aka "May Gray and June Gloom".

October is my favorite month in New York City. The summer tourists have gone and the Thanksgiving/Christmas tourist have not arrived. All of the locals who left town for the summer have returned. The city gets "back to business."

The air is crisp, but you can still walk around the city with a jacket (and not an overcoat). Restaurant menus turn warm and savory.

All the new "seasons" have started and there a lots of new shows and concerts to see.

The song captures it perfectly:

Autumn in New York
Why does it seem so inviting?
Autumn in New York
It spells the thrill of first-nighting.

Glittering crowds and shimmering clouds,
In canyons of steel,
They're making me feel -- I'm home.

March: because the flowers are blooming, you drive around with the windows open to smell their perfume, the weather is fantastic, and the boys of summer are warming up...

In my region my favorite month is December. All the beautiful Christmas lights/decorations glistening off of the beautiful fresh snow. Everyone is more friendlier and things tend to move a bit slower.

I agree with tpk - October in NYC is best. April is a close second, though.

I would say the exact same thing for Atlanta. But October would be really close if not in a tie. Gorgeous weather then too with dogwood blossoms and colorful leaves. Wish year round could be like those two months.

September is my favorite month here in the midwest because of all the awesome fall colors my state( Michigan) gets.

I live in northeast Texas. I have many favorite months here but could only choose one, so I chose November.

November is my favorite month here because the weather FINALLY becomes crisp. The sky is deep blue, and the fall leaves begin fluttering to the ground. Of course, we have Thanksgiving and I love that holiday. I love stuffing my face with family and then sitting out on the patio in that bright, crisp autumn air, and watching the kids run and play outside as the leaves flutter down in that brisk little breeze.

I also really love May and June in east Texas. May is gorgeous - everything begins to bloom and the days begin to lengthen and the evenings and mornings are lovely - they still have a hint of cool freshness to them.

June is great because though it can begin to get pretty hot, it's lush and vibrant, and full of summer fun.

Then there's January - always a favorite of mine. I love winter and here in Texas we don't get a lot of it - which I also love! So I relish cold evenings by the fire, and icy wet days - since we don't have many of them, they're special rather than tiresome. I love making a cup of hot tea and snuggling down by the fire with my dogs and my husband, with a good book and some classical music playing softly.

Life is good here in Texas!

October in San Francisco. It's the start of our "summer". It's harvest time in Wine Country. There are many festivals and events in the City. The Giants are hopefully still playing.

The only good months where I currently live:

June, July, August, Sept, and half of October.

I picked July. August and September are good too though.
