Sorry if this has already been asked.

Which U.S. city or area has, in your opinion, the best weather? This is completely based on what YOU like.
Elaborate on the length/change of seasons, etc.

Probably San Francisco because it's rarely hot. I would miss the Midwestern snowfalls. I don't think S.F. gets as much rain as Seattle, or I'd pick Seattle.

Yeah, I would prefer heavy snowfall over unbearable heat anyday!

Well I will pick the place where I live now. Grand Forks ND/East Grand Forks MN. I have always longed to live up in the north central part of the country and in the coldest area that I could (and still have my job) and it worked out that way. I have been here 11 years now. I like the wind and blowing snow in the winter and the sub zero days and the length of the winter season and the overall lack of extreme heat and humidity in the summer. Though it can certainly get to 90+ here a few times a summer.

I'll pick the midwest and where I am now. Give me 4 seasons any day over perpetual heat, boring!

Ideally, nowhere cooler than Wilmington NC.
In a "temperate" climate, I don't want to see any days below 60 F in March or November, any days below 70 F in October or April, any days below 75 F in May or September and any below 80 F in Jun, Jul or Aug. This is counting rainy days when there isn't as much sun heat.

In a tropical climate, zero days under 80 F and nights below 60 F during the coolest, cloudiest days would suit me fine.

Northern California east of the Siskyou crest for me. At about 1500 to 2500 feet of elevation you miss the doorknob softening heat of Red Bluff and Redding in the summer and the winters are as mild or milder than in the town I presently live in. You get four seasons and even though the winter rains are relentless (some places average 12 inches in December and January) spring arrives early and summer lasts well into October.
There aren't very many large cities and towns here so if you like quiet and little traffic this region is tough to beat.

Honolulu - the land of endless summer (what more is there to explain?).
