I think he was wowing at the irony... how NYC posters don't even realize there are areas of California that aren't tropical and filled with palm trees. And the pure lack of knowledge on any cities in general. I'm not sure why, but people in NYC aren't the most ignorant when it comes to basic knowledge of any city outside their own.

It's not...most of the hotels don't even have air conditioning in their lobbies. They don't need it.

are not know as having 4 Seasons, just because a few small areas has mountains where it does snow. That is why I would rather pick a state, like a NJ, where the entire state does.

Hot is very relative. I don't like anything over 75 degrees and even with that, not for long periods of time.

Northern Ca. Yes, it was nice, but I wouldn't want to live there because even though it's not hot and humid, it still has basically warm weather year round. I like 4 seasons. Yes, I know it snows in the mountains, but why should I have live in those mountains and never go anywhere else around a state just so I don't have to have warm weather? Why didn't the OP list other states where there are 4 seasons in the ENTIRE state?

If he had listed states in New England or the Midwest, I would have picked places.

I suppose living in Florida for 2 years has just gotten to me. I have developed an even more aversion to anything remotely tropical, sun, heat, humidity, and palm trees.

Most of the California outside of the coastal areas have very pronounced seasons, and even the coastal regions have seasonal variations.

How large must you be to take up an entire state? Or is it a kind of neurosis where knowing that somewhere out there, miles away from where you are, there's a place in the same state that doesn't have four seasons?

Anyhow, you are missing the point of this topic completely. The premise is that you have to live in these states--perhaps there really is not a single place in these states you won't like (though most of your reasoning relies on inaccurate stereotypes for an entire state), but the whole conceit is to choose what would be the most bearable if not enjoyable.

or do a word association. I was being honest, but if that is not a good reason, there here goes.

Arizona - Phoenix because my daughter's godmother lives there
California - SF Bay area - ok and the only are I have been to
Florida - Naples only because I already currently live there
Hawaii - Honolullu - word association
NJ - Princeton area
Oregon - Portland - sounds nice
Texas - Austin - was offered a scholarship there

Better?
