Los Angeles or San Diego to my mind because you have a lot of sunshine without excessive summer temperates.

The Southern United States has the Best Summer Weather in my Honest Opinion. Long Stretches of 90-100 Degree Heat and 70+ Degree Dew Points, the kind of weather I would and could handle better than I could tolerate bitter cold air with -25 F+ Wind Chills.

I would say places like Seattle sound great in summer weather wise, if you are aiming for comfortable non humid summers.

The best summer weather in the US (and the world for that matter) is Tampa, FL.

Hot sun followed by big thunderstorms. Grill and chill

LA Area Summer is best IMO, 80s coast, 90s city, 100s valleys, 110 deserts, and 80s mountains.

I also like the southern US summer weather with thunderstorms, I wish we had some more

As a few others have mentioned, my vote goes to Seattle for the best summer weather in the country. It's not hot or humid like much of the rest of the country is- just a very comfortable average in the mid 70's, with many days even in the upper 60's. To me that is heaven on earth, we have natural air conditioning while the rest of the country is a miserable hot mess most of that time.

Best summer weather is Pacific Northwest, Coastal California, Northern Maine, Northern Michigan, Maritime Canada, Vermont, Adirondacks Upstate NY, New Hampshire White Mountain region on summits

And also Alaska

Also Buffalo, NY, known for tons of winter snow, is generally good summer weather

The rest of the country stifles in scorching heat or oppressive humidity


But in early June and late August-Early Sept, the nice weather starts to get down into mid-Atlantic and Midwest and breaks in the heat become more common.

I like early June the best because the days are long and it's not hot yet for Northern US continental

Where on the immediate coast of southern CA are the average highs in the 80's?

Anywhere with overnight lows below 60 F from June-August without any rain.

Also, the summer mornings in the PNW are rather chilly, but that's probably not a minus for you.
Definitely not a minus. My ideal summer low would be 45-50 F. Up to 55 F is okay too.
