I prefer Cfb climates towards the continental end, and warmer Dfb climates like these:

Berlin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (It should say Cfb in Wiki, as the mean for January is above -3*C)

Worcester, Massachusetts - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For me, San Diego, and particularly Coronado, have the ideal climate for me. Most of the California cost, south of Mendocino, is fine with me. (I'm from Vancouver, Canada; there are worse, such as Winnipeg, Minneapolis, Montreal ...)

The Cfa climates in the southeastern US are vastly superior. Where else in the world averages nearly 70 thunderstorm days per year and still falls below freezing every winter like Charleston, SC?

I like Dfd/Dwd the best, but Dfc/Dwc is a close second.

ET is also good, albeit a bit boring, while EF climates have nice winter temps but are too monotonous for my tastes. I like to have some summer warmth, with highs between 10-20C in the warmest season.

It's been two years since I posted this, and I'm still a hardcore Dfa fan. However I now prefer winter highs a little closer to freezing (25-32 F / -4 to 0 C) and summer highs around 91 F / 33 C. It's the summer preference that's changed the most, but I still like winters where the average low doesn't drop below 0 F / -18 C, which requires a high at least around 18 F / -8 C.

I like the Green shaded ones (Csa, Csb, Csc) as my usual weather, with an occasional trips to the Blue/Purple shaded (Dsa to Dwd) places. I hate heat and humidity, especially both together.

Af, preferably in the highlands, but I’d be OK with sea level (especially with air conditioning). I wouldn’t even mind Fiji or NW Colombia, where it rains 200 inches a year. Think how easy gardening would be. All you’d have to do would be to weed, and with the damp ground, uprooting weeds would be a breeze. Of course you’d have to stay clear of the civil unrest, but no place is perfect.

Dfb climates for the changeability and well-defined differences between the seasons. Short summers, long winters with persistent snow cover and gradual transitional seasons. I like my current area and also would like places such as Caribou, ME; Tupper Lake, NY; Watertown, NY; St. John's Labrador/Newfoundland.

Dfc climates for retaining the changeability but having cooler climates Whittier, AK for high snowfall, mild temperatures and having a lot of rainfall. Other good Dfc climates-Labrador City, Anchorage, Crater Lake.

Dfa climates are also okay though tend to get a bit too hot for too long in the summertime but they aren't overall bad.
