There could be some thread previous about this topic, but is not well explained like I did with poll.

4 seasons, hot in summer, snow in winter; no tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes. Good amount of rain, not too much or too little. I picked "rest of the Northeast."

I like the cold, but the comfort you are proived by SoCal on the coast all year long cannot be beat. L.A. and San Diego imo have the best climates. Never too hot never too cold, always pleasant.

I love my Midwest seasons, but SoCal has the nicest weather yearround. I'd rather live in a place with seasons and visit a place like southern California or Hawaii. The seasons just help you appreciate all of it more.

Technically, the specific best place is Redwood City - motto: "Climate Best By Government Test!*"

*Mean annual sum of heating and cooling degree days.

Given those choices, I'll take the Midwest. But you didn't include the Mountain West, which is between the Midwest and Southwest. That would be my #1 choice.

SoCal has the most ideal climate all year round, however it gets BORING because it's the same damn thing every single day. my uncle just moved up here to CT after living in CA his whole life and he said he won't miss the same weather every day: 70, sunny and dry.
