Sacramento-Roseville-Folsom, CASacramento region is a gardener's paradise
There are few places in the US that offer Sacramento's near perfect gardening climate. The winters are just chilly and rainy enough to support fruit and berry plants of all type. And the summers are hot and dry to ripen fruits and vegetables to their prime.
Roses, citrus, apples/peaches/plums, tomatoes, gardenias and camellias all grow at their best in this climate.
Madison, WIPretty mid-sized metro area with pros and cons
This city would be on my short list if the winters weren't so long and cold.
San Diego, CABeautiful climate, scenery; cost of living- bad
If you have money, few places in the US beat San Diego County. However, if you are young with a growing family and have a medium salary, you will be very frustrated that you cannot afford a home here.
The climate gets hotter the further you are from the coast.
