Seattle almost never dips below 35, and rarely gets above 85. Rains a lot, but not as much as most people think.

Also southern Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio rarely get below 35, although they have brutally hot summers, at least by Midwestern standards.

Are you talking about daytime highs? B/c the average low in Seattle is 36 in Jan and Dec, and 37 in Feb. It gets below 35 at night there regularly in winter from what I can tell.

Yes, I mean daytime highs. Even the Deep South gets below 35 at night at this time of year.

I'm going to have to take a trip north to check out New England and Upstate New York. Sounds like it might be my kind of weather. (Expensive areas, though).

Honestly, I cannot really think of any place that precisely fits all of the OP's criteria. I want to say the mid-atlantic, the pacific northwest, and central california, but there is always one criterion that doesn't fit. Getting four full seasons in a temperate climate with tons of sun and little rain is just not easy.

I wish we had more than 2 seasons in California so this area is not a good choice. Denver\ Santa Fe\ St Louis\ Atlanta have 4 distinct seasons.

I really wouldn't call Atlanta a four season climate. More like three seasons, with a short fall and a very long spring. Winter is nonexistent.

really? not even 35 degrees?
Id say Virgina beach/norfolk area would best suit you.
they have about 60% sunshine annually, decent enough.
Their threats there are hurricanes and blizzards, but that area is almost perfect because it is usually north of many hurricanes and south of the blizzards.
temperature highs will be on average 85-90 during july-august, and lows will be around freezing point(30-35, not too bad) during january but with a high of 50 degrees.

I think New Mexico has great four season weather! Albuguerque and Northern New Mexico in general. The falls are cool and crisp, the summers aren't too hot, the winters get cold but nothing like Denver and other areas. Spring is warmer but still cool.

California would be the second best but it's more 3 seasons than 4 depending where in CA you live. Northern California gets A LOT of rain. Southern California despite what everyone thinks, actually does get rain! This past winter we here in San Diego got a few inches of rain from the El Nino. It even flooded streets. The mountains of SoCal get snow too! Big Bear(SoCal) is great for skiing! I love it!
