I guess that has its benefits. You probably save a ton of money on your electric bill by not having to run your air conditioner.
Typical summer nights are in the 50's and 60's, not cold enough to need a jacket.

We do need to use A/C and fans during the day, highs in the upper 80s to low 100's aren't uncommon during summer.

I like 4 distinct, nearly equal seasons, so I'll go with DC, St. Louis, and NYC. I don't see why so many people want to live in a climate that is about the same year round. That's just boring to me.

Minneapolis Mn, Green Bay Wi or Grand Rapids Mi. IF you sell snowblowers or woodstoves for a living then these citys have an ideal climate.

A lot of it is what you're used to. For those of us who have never lived anywhere that gets too cold, it can be hard to adjust to. I'm cold when it's 60 degrees out! Las Vegas gets colder in the winter than any other place I've ever lived, and it's not exactly a city that's known for it's cold weather, lol. When my family comes to visit me in the winter, they also often remark about how "freezing" it is here. If your body was not acclimated to 4 season weather, you might also prefer a more moderate climate.

People can't learn to adjust?

Based on the ones in the list , it is a toss up between Seattle, San Diego, and San Francisco, but I voted for San Diego. Weather is important to me, but I much prefer Seattle over San Diego as a place to live and as a city, even though I may prefer San Diego's weather sometimes.

Seattle, San Diego, and San Francisco almost fit my ideal climate. Seattle would fit my ideal climate if it had 50 less cloudy days, and 10 inches more of rain with more heavy rain days(yes I want 45 inches of rain per year instead of 35) , and zero days with temperatures 90 degrees and above instead of 1-4 days a year with 90+ temperatures. San Diego would fit my ideal if it had 30 inches more of precipitation, slightly colder winters, a few more cloudy days per month(but not more than 8 cloudy days), and zero days 90degrees+ San Francisco would fit my ideal climate if it had 20 inches more of precipitation, a few more cloudy days per month May-October but not more than 8, and zero days 90degrees+.

Now I realized I should have voted for San Francisco instead.

Out of the ones listed in the poll, my least ideal weather places would be Houston, Saint Louis, and Minneapolis. I hate 90+temperatures that these places have a lot late spring-early fall, I hate thunderstorms, and I hate extreme temperatures.

Miami would be my vote. Where else on the USA mainland can you stay in shorts and flip-flops year round…jump in 80 ocean water in December…and never need any type of socks –lol.

Seattle is cold, cloudy and depressing, San Diego is too cold in the winter, summers are too cool, the ocean is freeeeezing, NYC/DC too cold in winter (summers are hot/humid which I like)…and forget the interior of the USA (not on the coast). Miami = Coconut Palms, sunshine, and my own boat for day trips to the Bahamas. Now all I need is to win lotto!

Of all the cities on this list, I voted for Seattle because I like the rain and clouds. Its interesting because when I was a teenager and it would rain, I would get kind of sad. Not anymore though. Rain is good for the air and environment. Especially this time of year, Seattle's weather is pretty good. Yes it rains a lot over there but that's why that city is so green. I don't understand why anyone would complain about weather in the 50s and 60s with rain.

If you read my post, you would see that it said "hard to adjust to", not "impossible to adjust to".

Of course people can adjust, but that doesn't necessarily mean they want to adjust. Many people are used to moderate weather and enjoy it, so they don't feel the need to live in climates that would be hard to adjust to.
