CA, no doubt!

Very mild coast with a bit more variety further inland.

Iowa looks nice, though a bit too extreme. Then Indiana, Ohio... All over the central-upper Midwest and the Rust Belt really.

Washington state has a lot of interesting microclimates, plus I'd enjoy much of the northeastern seaboard.

Florida. Best for me means the highest combination of warmth, sunshine and thunderstorm activity.

Hawaii leaves every state in the dust.

California and Florida are pretty close behind,
but only the really warm/mild/sunny parts of California associated with SoCal represent a small portion of the state,
(the bulk of northern CA and some of central CA don't impress me)
whereas the entire state of Florida is very warm and very sunny most of the year, leading to similar lifestyle patterns statewide.
My gut feeling is to give Florida the edge because of this.

Just behind them I'd say Arizona,
nearly as mild as California and pretty safe from natural disasters.

then after that the states of the Deep South
then after that NV, UT, NM and the remainder of the South

Las Vegas would tie my interest with the Deep South,
but most of NV is much colder due to altitude.

California.

Eastern United States is too continental and the Northwest is too cool.

Alaska, Minnesota, North Dakota or Maine.

Minnesota and North Dakota might fight to the death for me, because they are cold in winter and have a lot of storm activity in summer.

In general - California! Great choices for everyone, a lot of climate variety, novel coastal microclimates.

For me - Hawaii or possible Florida, though I'd probably rather live in California due to hurricanes.

I wouldn't choose California, not a lot of snow unless you live on a mountain.

For me I think I'd go with North Dakota, Fargo especially.. cold, snowy winters, warm (but not hot), stormy summers..
