Honolulu and Hawaii in general.

Always warm but not too hot and never cold imo. Perfect amount of humidity. Doesn't rain a lot in the city of HNL but it's still very green. Great beach weather year round.

After that I'd probably say Southern CA and Florida.

If you ignore disaster-type weather/geological events (hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, mudslides, drought, etc.), I figure most folks would seek to avoid both (1) oppressively cold/snowy winters and (2) oppressively hot and humid summers. So the likely winners would probably be Hawaii, or San Diego/LA, because of lack of snowy winters and moderate, low-humidity summers.

My personal choice would be the southwestern US at some altitude. That gets rid of the humidity, but brings back a little bit of winter.

The entire SW part of the US is ideal because it has it all. As far as weather goes, it has something 39 micro climates in the region.

Mountains with heavy snows, mediterranean climates in southern California, desert climates in CA, AZ, NV, NM and Tx. It has seacoasts (CA and TX) and in AZ and CA you can ski in the morning and play golf in the afternoon. That's diversity.

Every kind of recreation, every kind of people or ethnic group, every kind of food .... it is all the ultimate in diversity.

Lower Northern - Central - Southern coastal California. Farther north is very nice too, just tends to be too rainy for me.

It's appealing to me because it avoids snow, avoids too much rain, and avoids extreme heat. Pleasantly neutral all year round. Some call it boring, I call it perfect

Right where I live - the northern suburbs of DC.
Uniform precipitation, a decent but not excessive amount of snow, and nice temperature ranges (25 degrees as the average low for January, 88 as the average high for July), though I wouldn't mind somewhere with a smaller range.

Seattle would also seem nice but it rains too much during 3 seasons.

I love NY in the summer and FL in the winter.

Where in the US is your "perfect climate?"

I love the climate of both Salt Lake City and Denver. I've lived in both and both are very similar. Strong, four season climate without too much of anything. Low humidity so temps year round seem more mild than they are. I also like the large ranges of temps in the same day. Summer can be 90's in the daytime and 50's at night. Just beautiful.
