The pacific coast and southwest like Phoenix and Las Vegas. Best option is maybe San Diego.

Looks like the Los Angeles area, Bakersfield, Yuma, and some others in that arena. They're all having terrible economic issues right now though. If you can tolerate some snow parts of New Mexico might work as I think they're doing better than California, Arizona, or Nevada.

Yuma is fine if you can tolerate 120 degree summer days. Seriously, do people basically hibernate during the summer?

That's not very specific, don't you have any other requirements of a city?

Seattle rarely gets hot AND humid. Pacific ocean regulates the climate.

The southwest region has low humidity and little (and often no) snow, the trade off being high summer temps, very often over 100 degrees. Major cities being Phoenix, Tucson, Las Vegas, and Albuquerque. In California, San Diego is an option, though be prepared for a major price jump. In the Northwest, Seattle and Portland get little snow, with a jump in humidity, but very mild temps all year. (Portland never averages above 80, nor below 30, if I'm not mistaken.)

Those are your only real options within the continental States. The southeast has little snow, but the humidity is quite high, the northeast gets a lot of snow, with humid summers, and while snow amounts accumulate as you move south, through New Jersey, Maryland, and Delaware, humidity stays quite high. The Midwest is heavy on the snow, with the warmer states getting a heavy dose of humidity to compensate for any lack of snowfall.

Hawaii also meets your criteria, but that's nearly a different country entirely. In terms of shock, you'd be really changing your entire atmosphere by going out there.
