Battle Of The Seasons: Why Summer Is The Best

As the old saying goes, we've saved the best for last, and summer is indeed the best season. People look forward to summer because it has much more to offer than the other seasons. It's always warm, the days are long, and unlike the other seasons, there is no point where it is too cold to do something.

From cookouts to vacations to swimming, summer just provides so many opportunities for things to do. After all, during what other season can you just choose a day and know that it'll probably be a nice one? No other season except summer.

Why Summer Is The Best

Warm Weather. Consider this: the national average temperature of the United States during the two full months of summer — July and August — is 74.29 and 72.77 degrees Fahrenheit. Even the northernmost city with a population of over 20,000, Fairbanks, AK, has an average of 72.7 degrees F. in July. Which other season can claim that it's comfortably warm almost anywhere for at least one month of the season? That's right, only summer can do that.

It's gets even better for cities that are among the contiguous 48 or are Hawaii, because you can be sure that almost any day of the summer is a good day for an activity. Want to barbecue? Great. Go camping? Go for it. Take a trip somewhere? You've picked the right time. There is almost nothing that can't be done during summer. You can even ski if you're willing to take a trip to Oregon. No other season has weather that allows such varied types of activities.
