Summers in Upstate NY hardly have temps over 90. It's more likely to be highs in the 70's and 80's. It can be humid, but it is rarely overbearing.

I forgot to mention that the Rochester metro is actually over 1 million people too. Unemployment is low in Upstate NY metros too.

Another Upstate NY metro the OP might like due to their age is Ithaca. It has 2 colleges in Ivy League Cornell University and Ithaca College. It's a "diverse" small city with a good Arts scene and plenty great natural scenery. It's in the Finger Lakes region, which has plenty of wineries and state parks.

Another small area that the OP might like is Plattsburgh. It's proximity to Montreal(only an hour away), the Adirondacks, Lake Champlain and other cities can be seen as a plus. There is a SUNY campus and a Community College in the city. There are some companies at the old Air Force Base and the Hospital is growing a bit as well. Plattsburgh has actually gained people this past decade too.

I know that Rome has a Federal Government Accounting Center and along with Utica forms the Utica-Rome metro. There are 3 4year colleges and 3 community college campuses in that metro. There are jobs with the Oneida Indian Nation and their Turning Stone Casino in various capacities as well.

Youngstown Ohio.. Economy is picking up biggg time with all the Marceles Shale lease money trickling into the local economy. Housing is dirt cheap, people are friendly, lots of snow, tons of restaurants especially Italian and Hispanic. The GM plant is running 3 shifts and the local steel pant is expanding.

If this true, that is great to hear. I have heard that Youngstown is actually starting to get some things together again.

I believe the Marcellus Shale thing is picking up in PA and parts of Upstate NY too.

hate the heat and humidity and $500.00/mo for rent... good food.... love snow.....sounds like Albuquerque, Colorado Springs (rent maybe little more the $500), Boise, Ft Collins/Loveland, and would say flagstaff but that is expensive as are most western mountain towns....now you might consider Boone, NC....but east of Mississippi there is humidity...that leaves out SE, NE, and MidWest...

What helps good portions of the Midwest and the Northeast is that while it can get humid, the temps don't get too high. You also can ffind some areas in those parts of the country with rent in that price range.

Check out places like Denver, Colorado Springs, Salt Lake City, Boise, Spokane.

+1 This is the best suggestion. I would like to add Cheyenne, WY to this list. Anyways, there is really low humidity out in the mountains and there is snow, but there is also mild winters.

The thing about the Midwest and Northeast is that there is snow, but it also gets really cold. I don't mind it because I have lived in this climate my entire live and prefer cold winter, but being a newbie to it could be rough. Even though it isn't as hot or humid as the South in the summer, it still gets hot and humid in the summer in the Midwest and Northeast.

In both the Midwest and Northeast, you freeze in the winter and burn up in the summer. Fall and spring are usually unstable and fluctuate in weather.

Fall is the best time of year around here. Winter can vary, even if you get a lot of snow. For instance, it was about 20-30 for a couple of days about 2 days ago here, on top of getting about 40+ inches of snow this week, but the streets are clear today and life went on as usual throughout the week. Spring can be hit or miss and Summer can vary as well, but around here it hardly gets over 90.
