I voted for upper rockies. There is nothing nicer then having 90 degree days and 50-60 degree nights. Open the windows in the evening, cover up with a good blanket and sleep like a log.

The evenings are cool enough to require a sweater. Build a nice campfire and everybody set around and roast a hot dog and drink a cold one. Nice contrast after a hot day in the sun.

Mornings, doing chore's are crisp and cool. Head in afterwards for some coffee and a good breakfast. By the time breakfast is done, a light jacket is no longer needed because it warms up quick.

Does "southwest" refer to Arizona or coastal California? Big difference.

Technically yes, but Arizona could be referred as "Lower Rockies"

The Deep Coastal South...nothing like lows in the low 80s and highs in the 90s
Not even a chance of feeling breezy~

That explains why everyone goes to Florida, the Carolinas, and Texas in the summer

I never have visited the South, so therefore the only humid place I went was Hawaii but dew point was in upper 60s and low 70s and temps in low to mid 80s. I cannot imagine 90s to low 100s with that humidity in South.

I picked the PNW even though I've never been there. Interior northeast can be nice. Last summer I left the heat and humidity of New Jersey and was greeted by cooler, more comfortable air in Northern New York. I'd imagine the upper midwest and Great Lakes would be pretty pleasant.

I suspect that's because many families can't travel outside of the school year.
