Desert. I suffer from all kinds of allergies and when we went to Santa Fe, NM it was like being able to breathe clearly for the first time in my life. I really want to move there someday.

@tippypaws: Understand & sympathize. Oddly, when I lived in Denver (a VERY dry climate), I suffered from a lot of allergies & sinus problems. Part of that was the horrific smog in Denver. Don't know if it's still true, but years ago, Denver was 2nd to LA for the worst smog in the nation. Since moving to Florida, I have fewer allergy problems. By far.

I like a little bit of everything. I love having different seasons, I love snow, don't really like when it is crazy hot but I love the beach. I don't think I would be happy living in a place like Florida unless I was able to be on the beach/boat every day - if I had a "regular" job I'd be unhappy. I've pretty much lived in the Northeast my whole life and I think that's the climate that suits me. I've visited the desert - not for me. I'd gladly take more snow than what I have now, only as long as I can still get to the beach relatively quickly.

@mkdr: You know, I've always thought there should be reverse-snowbirds. Designed for those who like both cold/snow AND hot weather. The usual snowbird flees to a hot climate during the winter. Re: Working in Florida...you still have the option of going to the beach. Year-round. It is heaven!

A "reverse" would stay in the cold/snow & go to the heat in the summer. ::snicker:: :-D

Desert. Hot, dry and sandy. What more could you want? Except water, of course.

@okham: :-D With water, it's hot, humid and sandy. I so love the tropical landscape. Lush w/green leafy trees/bushes all year. Few trees lose their leaves here. It really is green all year. Grass doesn't die. Palms gently (or furiously blowing-storms, you know) wafting in the breeze. Fruit trees.

What most people regard as house plants grow outside here - i.e. enormous split leaf philadendrons (sp? - please don't deduct points on that misspell). Lovely birds, such as cardinals, live here. As do possums, raccoons...and alligators. :-/

Still searching for a place that's got occasional rain (but isn't rainy) and NY autumn weather year round. cool and crisp, with a few warmer days, but never summer... and maybe only sometimes winter lol.

@goatcrapp: Possibly in the mountains of Panama, Peru or Equador?

I suppose I am in a "neutral" zone......I like it here, but would love a more consistent climate. I get to see all four seasons(most years) but I detest cold weather and humidity. :-/ To answer your question, I would have to say "in-between".

Lived in tropics, desert, high plains, mountains, coastal, islands, and about anything else except polar regions.

I prefer something with 4 seasons (not just Hot, Hotter, Really Really Hot, and It'll Be Hot Again Next Week) and some altitude.

If it were 10 degrees cooler, year round, then it'd be just about perfect here in NE Texas. The scenery is beautiful, the residents happy and nice. The only problems are the oppressive August heat and the general lack of snow in winter. Ten degrees would fix both problems.

@jsimsace: Forgive me for forgetting where is "here" to you. You live where? One thought: if you "detest" cold weather, you will never be happy if it's cold where you live.

Hmmm, I guess I should say I could never be happy where it's cold. I tend to be unbearable when the temp drops below 70. But, that's me. I LOVE hot weather. :-D

Odd fact: I have a friends in Montana and family in Kansas/Missouri. It has been over 100 degrees in both places on many days this summer. Really?!. It has not been 100 degrees in FL.

And people think it's TOO hot here. As I said....odd. ;-) Searingly odd. Burning odd. Too hot to handle odd.

Tropics: Only been in that region a few times (Walt Disney World vacation and Philippines) and the climate is just way too humid for me (totally not used to it).

Desert: Where I currently live, during the day I could crack an egg on a rock and it will cook and during the night (of the same day) I could probably make ice cubes outside (slightly exaggerating that, but it really feels like it).

Coastal: Where I used to live, the climate is quite nice. Nothing much to complain except that most of the world lives on that coastlines = crowdedness.

Did you know that the ocean is a really, really good weather buffer and thats why most people live near the oceans?

Why isn't arctic a choice?? :)

I live in "flyover" country (Kansas), does that count?
