Who has the best summer weather in the country?

Seems to me like the places I know that have the best summer weather also have undesirable winter weather. Like, the Pacific Northwest (Oregon/Washington). Great, mild summers, but rainy and grey winters.

Uppermidwest has mild, gorgeous summers but at least where I'm at (MI) its still humid. I would prefer a more dry climate (like PacNW).

What about... Montana?

Hmmm.... anyone else have a better idea?

Thanks Maria,,for your reply,, I am not worried about winter just July and August,,,

I don't 80-90 degree weather if the humidity is below,, 60 per cent,,

You had some good suggestions,,,, I will probably try several different places,,

It is just for a summer get-a-way,,, not looking for anything permanent,,,

Any beach city in So. Cal will give you the weather you are looking for. All beaches south of Sunset in Huntington Beach would be the best. LA beaches are not as safe, but will also give you the weather you are looking for.
Temperatures are usually low 70ís to mid 80ís, cool ocean breezes, rarely gets in the 90ís.

Try the mountains in western N.C. You don't want to be anywhere in Texas at least from May-Oct.

Southern California along the coast up through Santa Barbara and to Carmel. Some days might have fog, but overall...exquisite weather.

Default Well it could be a lot of places

Maybe NH or VT

Certain parts of OH, PA or WV.

Out west lots of choices. ID, MT, CO

One of the best tricks is always be up in elevation. Those states above will allow that to happen.

One good thing to watch is on a super boiler day in the summer over the entire country, where are the areas that report lower and more comfortable temps. A lot does have to do with the humidity. Being up in elevation usually is the cure for that problem.

The other thing to check is that particular area in a known pollution basin??? If it is, super hot days tend to be miserable.

If I was just going as a visitor probably would pick MT or maybe VT / NH.

I think here in south minnesota. Warm, green, and when it turns hot the whether channel only reports about 45 prercent humidity. The nights cool slowly too so you can enjoy it at night. There are some periods where it would be cold and rainy/Windy in the summer. Would last for almost a week and stay away for a month but has not happened the last two summers though.

Suprised nobody (especially the West Coasters) mentioned these--Lake Tahoe, Jackson Hole/Yellowstone, Big Sky/Bozeman, any ski resort town in Colorado (Vail, Aspen, Steamboat and the like) got great summer weather.
San Francisco and Monterey/Carmel also have mild summer temps.
