If you like looking at terrain maps the NWS has maps in the local forecast section that are interesting.

Your criteria is pretty vague and fits a lot of small towns. We were asking for a few more specifics so that we could give you better suggestions. Right now it's pretty much like throwing darts at a map. There are hundreds of places that would fit your criteria.

Also, the op might want to tell us what type of work he does or wants to do. It can be very hard finding work in small towns. There are thousands of small towns across the south that fit your criteria, but you have to find one that will provide you with work.

Sequim or Port Angeles. Possibly Lopez Island. Aberdeen, Friday Harbor, or Westport? Ocean Shores? Eastsound or Oak Harbor? Anacortes? All in Washington of course. Pretty mild (although wet) just about anywhere west of the Cascades. Some of the areas I mentioned do sit in a rain shadow created by the Olympic Mountains, though.

I'd say Oregon, and just about anywhere in the state west of the Cascades. I never recommend the Gorge, because they do get some harsh winters and when it happens life is pretty much a standstill due to Highway 80 being closed. Didn't happen this year, though.
