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.
Only been to Honolulu

For summer only weather forget the coast of California. Fog, fog, fog and in the afternoon when it clears expect weather highs in the mid-sixties. And forget sitting outdoors in the evening and enjoying your backyard as it it too cold. We find the summers in Upstate NY idyllic: pleasantly warm, cool enough at night to sleep comfortably without air conditioning, and adquate rainfall to enjoy gardening and greenery. That's where we vacation to enjoy a "genuine" summer.

Florida for the thunderstorms, heavy cloud cover and oppressive lows

I am backwards compared to most people as I would rather spend summer in Florida than winter

Anywhere south of the 38th parallel, except for elevated locations and extreme coastal California.

Anywhere west of the Cascades in the Pacific Northwest, perhaps about 10-20 km from the coast is ideal to get a little bit of warmth and to stay clear of the fog. Even places like Portland are acceptable, although they can get the odd heatwave now and then.

For a bit more variety including the chance of thunderstorms, the high mountain west above 2000 m (Flagstaff et. al.) comes a close second. The strength of the sun at these elevations is pretty brutal though, that's why I slightly prefer the PNW.
