I adore the Oregon Coast...of course, I live here so I may be a little biased. The temperature rarely crosses outside of the 35-75F range. And the weather is always entertaining. We average 85-100 inches a year in most places out here (compare with 35 inches in New York and Seattle), but it bothers very few of us who actually live on the coast. For one thing, it keeps the pollen washed out of the air most days for those of us with allergies and it also keeps the tourist-count down for much of the year (nothing as fun to make jokes about as tourists, no matter how much our town relies on them).
There is a stark beauty here that's hard to deny as well.
