While most cities and towns roast in the summer heat, a handful of U.S. cities fail to reach the 80 degree mark on summer days. The average daily temperatures are kept by the U.S. National Weather Service and, while some years see overall higher temps, an average summer for these locations averages below 82 degrees Fahrenheit (or 27.8 degrees Celsius).
The upper West Coast is the place for cool summer weather and San Francisco, the City by the Bay, offers a cool average summer temperature of 68.4 degrees Fahrenheit.
Another West Coast cool summer getaway location, Seattle, Washington records a cool average 73.0 degrees Fahrenheit for the summer months of June, July and August.
San Diego, California, records both the most moderate winter and summer weather. The bay and Pacific Ocean cool San Diego to an average of 75.2 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer.
Portland, Oregon tracks an average of 77.2 degrees Fahrenheit for residents and visitors during the period of June through August. Expect some summer rain also in this location.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin may be a surprising entry on a list of the coolest summer locations, but with an average temp of 78.8 degrees Fahrenheit., Milwaukee's geographic location and features keep the summer months temperate.
