San Francisco is the best I think, but here in NY it's not bad.

Actually nowhere in the US has weather as ideal as parts of Australia (imho) except some hilly part of Hawaii about 1,000 metres above sea-level.

In terms of temperature, San Diego for it's sheer mildness, but it lacks in seasons and rainfall.

I think coastal Virginia is an okay balance. The heat isn't quite as oppressive as D.C. or even Richmond, and the winters are a little milder. A good mix of sun, cloud and rain too.

I voted Minneapolis because it was closest to Chicago's weather, which I enjoy a lot. Then Seattle would be int he second slot and then San Francisco.

I voted for San Diego CA. Everytime I've ever been to the Whales Vagina its been perfect (what most people I think consider perfect i.e. sunshine and high 70slow80s)

So it seems that most people like warm(er) weather. I guess San Diego's weather would be nice, but doesn't that just get kind of boring after awhile?

Nope. There is a small noticeable change of seasons in SoCal and You don't get bored because there is always something to do.

Warm weather and lack of change, as in distinct Fall and Winter scenery/weather, does get boring. You lose all sense of time going by because of that. Maybe some old folks like that. Not this one.

But that's not the point. I'm talking about weather, not the many things to do in Southern California.

I would normally choose San Diego, as it's climate is my fave because I dont like really hot weather, but.... I went with Denver because I still like a change of scenery. If Denver could just chop off about 3 months where they get snow, I think its climate would be just about right. Id also like Albuquerque's climate over Denver's, but its not on the poll so Denver gets my vote.

I agree, I think this country has some of the worst weather imo. A few good places, but not too many.
