Difficult to explain. Basically what are places that feel like summer in a non-equatorial region, year round? I don't mean the climate can't be technically tropical, it just doesn't "feel" that way.

Maybe Nairobi? Has year-round warm temperatures, but with a large diurnal range. Nairobi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The averages are sort of like Olympia, Washington's summer, but with much more rain at certain times of the year.
Here's Olympia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olympia...hy_and_climate

Pretty much all the subtropical highland climates barring the really cool ones e.g. La Paz:

Mexico City - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Addis Ababa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also mild desert climates:

Walvis Bay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dakhla, Western Sahara - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also, low-lattitude Oceanic climates / cool subtropical climates:

Norfolk Island - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George, Western Cape - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

if it's not tropically warm it's not summer weather. 18c is a bare minimum to consider it summer and since u said u year round that means tropical... but some places that don't get hot are as follows
Medellin,Colombia Medellín - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bucaramanga,Colombia

San Jose,Costa Rica

My picks:

- Central East Coast Australia, e.g. Coolangatta, Queensland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- moderate altitude places in Hawaii, e.g. Lanai City, Hawaii - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- places at tropical / sub-tropical latitudes tempered by cold ocean currents, e.g. Las Palmas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I don't think I made it clear enough what I meant. I don't mean non-tropical temperatures. I said the climate can be technically tropical. I just mean somewhere that doesn't have high rainfall year-round, nor a pronounced wet or dry season, but not a semi-arid or desert climate either. Somewhere that would have moderate rainfall spread out over many days, typical of less equatorial latitudes, and also not extremely hot temperatures and a decent diurnal range as well, plus is sunny year round.

Both Canary and Madeira islands (in a lesser extent) come in mind.
