It depends on what you consider "East Coast", whether the immediate coastline or anything east of the mountains. Perhaps within 30 or 50 miles of the coast? Anyway...

Mark me down as voting for Jonesboro, Maine. It's quite close to the coastline, so I'm sure it qualifies. It's the coolest and snowiest city (or really any location that I'm aware of) that is near the coastline.

I'm a WWF (warm weather fan)...so obviously I would swing toward warmer climates.

1.Ft. Lauderdale, FL (plenty of annual sunshine, endless summer, modest annual rainfall).

2.St. Augustine, FL (plenty of annual sunshine, about 9 warm months, 3 months of a cool season – but not a winter, modest rainfall).

On the coast, I would be happy in Boston, and A- climate. Incidentally, it seems like a nice city too.
If inland cities not far from the coast are allowed, Hartford wins, with a plain A. Only downside is the too sunny winters.
There are lots of nice climates to choose from on the East Coast.

I like this weather station: CAPE HENRY WB CITY, VIRGINIA - Climate Summary

A bit "middle of the road" type of climate. Summers are long but not hot or endless. Winters are mild but I wouldn't say non-existent. IMO there is enough temperature variation to keep things interesting. Also this place seems drier than much of southeastern coast (such as Cape Hatteras for example.) No sunshine statistics unfortunately but we can infer, from nearby locations that it is at least 2600 hours, which is sufficient for me.

Hmmm, probably somewhere like Charleston: Charleston, South Carolina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

But this is still too hot in summer and a little too cool in winter for my tastes. The West Coast is much better suited to my preferences.

Not bad at all. Based on the limited years of data from 1948 to 1970, the average annual extreme min temp is 19f, which makes it a very strong 8b udsa zone (almost 9a). I'll bet you can grow some decent subtropicals here with care.
