I've lived in MN my whole life. We have beautiful autumns, summer, and basically a big horribly cold winter. Spring is sometimes there, sometimes not because I do recall it snowing it April.
Personally, I would love to go somewhere that has all the seasons, except winter. I hate it. I'm finally to the point of seriously considering leaving and moving to San Diego. But if I get the need to see snow, I can always go north in CA.
