A difficult question, but I'm inclined to think that Australia's Gold Coast has the world's best weather.

My ideal is a high level of sunshine year round up around 75-90% of that possibly available.

I am less bothered by the temperatures (ie would take a cooler place over a warmer place with a sunshine tradeoff), but prefer warmer weather and maybe an afternoon thunderstorm in the summer months.

Warm evenings are good as well .

Not sure if I could live in a desert location as do prefer a bit of rain (mainly in short bursts, preferably in the evening).

In my opinion, places like the Carribean have my ideal climate. Also some parts of Queensland (e.g. Townsville) and many parts of Western Australia (although most are fairly dry).

Townesville is a good case in point. It has very high sunshine hours in addition to year-round warm temperatures and moderate rainfall.

Desert or near-desert, but not too hot. Must be very sunny.

Too bad it's out of my budget.

Ironically a lot of Kiwis live there, and let me say one thing - it is good - boasting 300 days a year of sunshine (according to tourist brochures- which are always biased) - but hotter and more humid than you may think than a temperature given on an ocean spit.

Sioux Falls South Dakota, cold but dry winters with a good severe weather season and a nice four season climate.

Yes, I went there a couple of weeks back and it was just gorgeous. Unusually cloudy / rainy / windy but still warm (one day had a high of 26 C and an overnight low of 19 C). There were quite a few coconut palms as well.

Pleasant enough, but that eastern seabord is too prone to big dumps of rain.
