All of the given climates have a similar range in temperatures and based off of coastal New England. These temperatures are right in the transition zone between Subtropical and Continental (hot summers, cool/cold winters). The only difference is the precipitation and sunshine hours. The temperatures are of course not an exact match but I think they are close enough. Also this temperature range is my favorite, which is why I picked it.

1. Providence, RI https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provid...Island#Climate
2. Hood River, OR https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hood_R...Oregon#Climate
For extra climate info (sunshine hours), Hood River is very similar to neighboring Portland https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portland,_Oregon#Climate
3. Hope, BC https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hope,_...lumbia#Climate
4. Turin https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turin#Climate
5. Sarajevo https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarajevo#Climate
6. Constanta https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constan%C8%9Ba#Climate
7. Simferopol https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simferopol#Climate
8. Qingdao https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qingda...hy_and_climate
If you need to know humidity look at neighboring Weifang https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weifang#Geography
9. Sendai https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sendai#Climate
10. Srinagar https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Srinagar#Climate

I know that Hope doesn't have a summer that is as hot or long as the others But it seems that heat waves are very common considering it has 4 months of record highs above 100F compared to Turin which never has even gotten that hot, And i really wanted something that was very different from the others.
And Srinagar's summers are by far the longer than the others But it has the same range of temperatures and I wanted to include all regions that exhibit these temps, and I'm pretty sure it exists somewhere in the himalayas, and this was the closest I could find, and again a bit different. However I don't know the sunshine hours for Srinagar

Also since some of them are somewhat similar I will allow multiple votes in the poll to make it easier to pick your favorite, but try not to vote more than 3 times . And conversely Which three are your least favorite. If you want you can rate them.

My top 3 are:
Srinagar (A)
Providence (A)
Simferopol (A-)

My bottom 3 are:
Hope (D-)
Sendai (C-)
Sarajevo (C)
