Long Beach. If I'm going to live at a beach, might as well have weather conducive to swimming during part of the year. Plus, as a climate, Long Beach is better. Though I wouldn't want to live in either.

The Problem about the Long beach climate data is, that the weather station sits at the airport, which is about 6km from the actual coast. This results in an different (warmer) climate than on the coast.

For me this is a joke of a battle. Long Beach is way superior. I just love sunny, semi-arid and Mediterranean climates.

Well it's sitting next to a giant air conditioner that won't turn off. I'm more surprised at its winter lows, my guess is the breeze off the ocean in the winter is weak or nonexistent so radiational cooling allows the night temperatures to drop.
