    As summer begins, we asked fans: what's your ideal temperature? Here are the results, and a list of cities in the U.S. best suited for whatever temperature range you prefer.

    With nearly 12,000 people participating in the poll, the 70s won by an overwhelming majority with almost half of the total votes. While the 80s came in a close second, 100 F or above ranked last with just over 100 total votes.

    For most voters, the West Coast is the place to be this summer as mid-July temperatures in San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle would provide that 70 F weather.
