I think Charles Kuralt nailed it when he chose the best place in the US.

He picked his 12 favorites and stated which month he wanted to be in each.

Why is Monterey, CA so humid though!
I would love to have the beach right there outside the patio (who wouldn't right!) But I don't like humidity.
Looking at the temps of Monterey, the humidity is unlikely to be a mitigating factor when the temps are so low.
A place with an average of <3 days a year above 90F or 32C, is unlikely to be any cause for concern, if and when humidity is present.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montere...fornia#Climate
I dont like humidity either, hence I live in the outer inland suburbs of my city, even if temps do get a bit higher in summer than right on the coast.

Nothing beats Washington, DC in the fall. From September to around the middle of November it's perfect. Then it starts getting chilly

If there's a place with weather like that year-round (Seattle and Portland seem best to fit the bill), I wanna be there.

I agree 100%...the mid Atlantic States from DC to NYC has the best weather in the USA from mid September to late November. After a long, hot summer..the cool nights - but sunny warm days are nice change.

The more I learn about climate, the more I think the Mid Atlantic states have the best overall climate in the USA: long hot summers (but not unending heat like AZ/FL)…mild falls with lots of sunshine…and a real winter, but not the extreme cold of the West/Midwest or snow of the Mt.West/Great Lakes/New England.

Eh, I guess so. You definitely get a taste of almost everything. Like you said, pleasant Springs and Falls accompanied with hot and humid summers and cold, somewhat snowy winters. We rarely have hot and dry days in the summer though, so you won't get that desert heat.

Trust me, it's the best for having some of everything but it's not the best to live in unless you really enjoy the hot humid summers and the winter. IMO if you don't get a lot of snow then there's no point in Winter, it's just cold for the sake of cold.

I like the mid Atlantic version of the 4 season climate. Another advantage besides those already mentioned is that it is sunnier than in most of New England/Great Lakes.

I've never been to Perth, is this what Perth is like?

In the continental US, San Diego is the closest thing I've found to my ideal, but i can't afford to live there.
I lived in San Diego. It's the BEST weather, for sure. But, now, I want to explore the East Coast because of it's American history and literature.:-) The East Coast is not the best for weather, though. I would LOVE it if the climate of San Diego (which is Mediterranean) could be on the East coast...I'd be there in a heartbeat.
