Summer. I don't like having to put on jackets and such just to go outside.

Fall. Love the cooler weather after the long, hot summer. Our rainy season is late summer/early fall so fall is greenish. The smell of roasting chile. State Fair, Balloon Fiesta, Pueblo Feast Days. Spring is windy and I have have allergies to the tree pollen.

Fall for me. In North Texas, July and August are unbearably hot. I'd never survive without the pool. January and February are pretty miserable too and we get ice storms that shut down the whole region. Other than those 4 months, it's fairly moderate and enjoyable to be outdoors. But by far, October is my favorite month of the year. Cool mornings, warm afternoons. No HVAC running, open windows to air out the house. I ride my bike every day unless it rains. All the landscapes are mature and colorful, but don't need as much maintenance.

Fall here is really nice. Spring has the winds and that makes it not as nice. Summer is actually not bad for heat, but we also get majority of precipitation with the monsoon season. We certainly need the water however. Fall has the cooler nights and sunny days without being too cold yet.

I would prefer to chase spring but here is a trip that chases 70 degrees A Year-Long U.S. Road Trip for People Who Want 70-Degree Weather Every Day - CityLab

My initial thought was fall. I like September and early October when the mornings are cooler but we still have warmish weather during most of the daytime hours. The problem is the nice fall weather is only about 6 weeks then it's winter for 7 months. Fall can be depressing knowing what's coming. Spring is basically just the month of May so hard to say that's my favorite. Summer is hot and humid a lot of the time but it's sooo much better than winter that I may have to say it's my favorite season.

We call HI the "Land of Ever-Summer." I picked summer, though I could miss some aspects of spring and fall if I worked at it. Summer here is rarely too hot, so that aspect of summer isn't a problem very often (as it used to be in the midwest.) Avg. diff in temp summer to "winter" here is about 5 degrees F. Honestly I kind of like our winter version of summer best - it's a bit cooler AND has bragging rights. YMMV

Fall. I've lived in NY, CT, NJ, FL,TX, and GA over my lifetime, and in all those places fall was the best season weather wise of the four, especially in terms of low humidity, which tends to drain my energy even more than the heat. Not too hot. Not too cold. Generally just about the right amount and type of precipitation that I could easily tolerate. Also, generally less pollen.

Wow, surprised both at the poor showing of Summer and popularity of Fall. Would have thought that Spring would be on the same level as Fall.

At my current location I prefer mid February up to June, and then mid September to beginning of November. Mostly because of temperature and hours of sun.

Too little sun, unhappy camper. Too hot, very unhappy camper.

My ideal living is being able to do November - Feb in the southern hemisphere (e.g. New Zealand). Haven't figured out how to deal with those summer months.

Maybe Canada?

I used to just love summer... still like it but I'm less tolerant of the heat and humidity than I used to be. Now I look forward to fall (early fall) when the temps are in the 60s and 70s. Still nice to be outside and I don't have to take multiple showers a day. And I don't have to run the heat or the A/C. Gas and electric bill drops quite a bit in September and October!

Spring, with Fall a solid second. The days are longer in spring than in fall, and with DST now starting in early March we get those later sunsets.

I voted for summer but in retrospect agree with Keith. Our time in PVR Jan-Mar is special.
