Yes, as I said, New England. I don't know about the rest of the east coast but up here it's fairly allergy free along the coast. We do get some because the wind blows pollen from inland but compared to living in the middle of it all, this is nothing. It's kind of like living in the desert--just sand. There are seaside areas in New England that have mansions, rolling green lawns, and plantings--that wouldn't be too good for allergies. But most places by the ocean are little towns with cottages or condos and no room for trees and grass even if they could grow there. The 5 months of so of freeze in winter kills everything--there's absolutely no pollen or mold. You can even kill dust mites by putting the infested item outside for 24 hours in winter, dust mites being a strong allergen for some people and separate from dust itself.

I've been researching this topic for quite a few years, as my wife suffers tremendously from allergies. What I've found is not what I expected. Dry climates are supposedly better but there are factors that render this a false assumption. The high winds, blowing dust and wind carry a lot of junk in the air besides tree pollen. The dust itself is bad, as can be airborne pollution from animal farms and crop farms, insecticides, blowing junk from harvesting plants. Cold can also be bad. The tendency is to stay inside and the air inside your house is much more unhealthy than the outside air. What can also make allergies bad is the bodies reaction to rapid and regular changes in air pressure and temperature. People like to live near the ocean coast. I think that is because the climate is generally healthier, After all, lots of folks who live close to the coast never go to the ocean. This web site seems to bear that out.

I have had allergies no matter where I have lived. Colorado, Arizona, Texas, New Jersey, it didn't matter. I am miserable!
