10 Destinations Where the Weather’s Always Just Right

Goldie Locks would happily call these places home


Everyone has their own definition of ideal weather. While we bet some of you could spend all 365 days of the year bundled up in your warmest winter gear so long as you could hit the slopes every day, we know there’s just as many of you who would happily give up ever having to see snow again in exchange for year-round, bask-in-the-sun beach weather.

Whatever your preference, most can agree: mild spring and summer climates make for some of the most enjoyable times spent outside. Who wouldn’t want to pass a perfectly pleasant spring day picnicking in the park? And what could beat spending the entire summer barefoot by the breezy shore?

Some parts of the world have to put up with frigid temperatures, gusty winds and heaps of snow before Mother Nature finally grants climates akin to paradise. In other parts, well, the majority of days are graced by the warm rays of the sun and open-toe-shoe temperatures.

They’re the destinations where Goldie Locks would most like to live. In other words: locations where the year-round weather is not too hot, not too cold and almost always just right. If you’ve ever prayed for the permanence of spring and summer, we suggest that you seriously consider relocating to one of the following cities where weather conditions are totally temperate all year long

Loja, Ecuador

This often overlooked Ecuadorian city boasts mid-70s daytime averages almost every day of the year. Considered the cultural and musical capital of the country and situated just next to Podacarpus National Park, it’s not hard to see why this steady-seasoned city is otherwise known as “The Valley of Smiles.”

Best Time to Visit: All year
