Unless you hate humidity, I go with Northern New England over the PNW as you get more interesting weather and storms than the Pacific Northwest which has few storms or rain, just some low bland stratus cloud and drizzle in between the mostly sunny days.

With exception to years such as this one, I thought it was generally sunny and dry in the PNW.

I do enjoy thunderstorms, but I could live without them if it means comfortable summers.

Yea, it is usually sunny and dry in the PNW. That what I was trying to say in my post. It's not constantly sunny (sunshine is 60-70 %) so that's why said occasional stratus cloud and drizzle. My point was that if you wanted interesting summer weather, New England is a better choice while the PNW is pleasant but bland.

Also, the summer mornings in the PNW are rather chilly, but that's probably not a minus for you.

From my perspective, there's relatively little bad summer weather outside of Alaska, Texas and some of the low-lying, the inland south-west. I've mostly traveled to the US in summer and enjoyed the pleasantness of the PNW, the steamy swimming-weather of the South, the hot, dry, occasionally stormy weather of inland west and the cool dry summers of the Pacific coast.

Cape Hatteras has great summers in my opinon; warm, humid, reasonably wet, but breezier than the mainland.

Even excessively rainy Hilo?

Of those I have personally experienced:

Eastern Washington has pretty darn good summers. Hot, dry air. Very sunny. Cools down into the 60s and 50s at night after a hot day, very very very little rain. No humidity. Excellence.

The worst I've ever experienced was Missouri. WAY too hot and humid.

Western Washington has pretty good summers too. A little more humid than I prefer, more chance for rain and fog, but overall not too bad at all.
