The first day of summer is upon us and that means the heat is also upon us. Temperatures are rising across the country and thereís no sign of it stopping! If you melt in the heat rather than flourish, youíre probably considering fleeing to the North Pole until October at the earliest. Instead, opt for some of these US cities where the sun doesnít beat down quite as brutally. quite as brutally.

Seattle

No one appreciates summer more than Seattleites. With over 60% of their year covered in clouds, the moment the sun peeks out, they cheer and jump for joy. Most people are aware of Seattleís reputation as one of the rainiest cities in the country. What you might not realize is that summerís in Seattle are comfortable and mild. Temperatures donít tend to reach the heights that they do in other parts of the country. The average high temperature over the summer months is a pleasant 72. The rain even lets up over the duration of the summer with an average of only 35 inches of rainfall throughout June, July, and August.

San Francisco
While most of California is bathed in sunshine and home to some of the worldís most stunning beaches, San Francisco prefers to keep it a bit more mild. Literally. The average high temperature over the summer months hovers around 56įF, making for a very comfortable season. San Francisco isnít just a great place to live if you despise summer but also a great place to live if you canít stand winter. The average temperature over the winter months is around 52įF. You can wear the same clothes practically all year!

Anchorage
This might seem obvious but Alaskaís summers are some of the most temperate in the country. With an average temperature over June, July, and August of 63įF, the summers in Anchorage are cooler than elsewhere in the country. You wonít be sweating bullets just walking from your vehicle into your apartment. Although be prepared for a small adjustment to your sleep schedule: Anchorage gets an average of 20.7 daylight hours per day over the summer months. We recommend investing in some blackout curtains so, you wonít miss out on any shut-eye.

 

Summer is certainly not for everyone. If thatís the case for you, consider packing up and moving to a city with a milder season. Sure, it gets warmer but not enough to make you sweaty and uncomfortable. Check out apartments in these cooler cities on Rent Jungle today.
