It really depends on the part you are in and of course the year. Some years are cooler than the normal, others are hotter. The further away from the Coast you get the warmer the Summer months are. I lived in Caribou area (on the northeast corner near the top) which is quite a long way from the coast and it would break into the 90's every Summer. Even though I was 300 miles further Northeast than Portland, they were always cooler in the Summer and warmer in the winter. Go ahead and laugh everybody and say how the 90's isn't hot, and I will laugh and remind you that -30 or -40 isn't that cold either. There isn't many places that can bank on 120 to 130 degree temp range every year like you get there. 90 is HOT! Hotter than the hinges on hells gates when you just came off -30's and -40's a few months earlier.

Summers in Maine are capable of reaching the 90s, but 90s are not the norm. An average summer day in Maine is 75-80. I would have to side with the people saying they barely exist because of how short they are.

Along the coast they are not the norm. Go inland. In 20 years living in Northern Maine, I never saw a summer that didn't top 90 at least once, and had weeks in the mid to high 80's.

New York is the best for four seasons. And New England states too.

Colorado!

And I'm sorry but Minnesota does not have four seasons. It has Winter and Road Construction.

Washington and Oregon on the west side rains from late October to end of May, this year hasn't stopped. When it rains the sky closes up with doomy clouds and its depressing. Unless you like a LOT of rain.....On the flip side there is a ton of green, trees and water so a few months out of the year when the sun is shining it's beautiful. I need more sun!
