I live in Wisconsin but want to move. I'd like to move to a state that gets little to no snow in winter. I don't like desert climates and would like to live near a lake or river. Also looking for a smaller town, nothing over 50,000.

This was one of the warmest winters in the Upper Midwest in recent memory and it has you scattering to other places? I can see last winter, but not this one!

First place that came to mind is Hood River, Oregon.

Would you be fine with a hotter, humid climate, or a more temperate climate? Depending on your preferences, the Southeast or the Pacific Northwest might be what you are looking for. The two are very different with both weather and culture...so you would need to tell us a little more of what you are looking for.

This is very vague. You should provide more criteria so we can help narrow your options. There are hundreds of small towns with populations less than 50,000 near lakes and rivers in areas that get little to no snow. Do you need good schools? Jobs?

The more specific you can be, the better we can help you without giving you suggestions that are literally all over the map.

They average 10-15 inches of snow. This winter I don't even think they received 1-2 inches. Asheville has a very mild four season climate. It doesn't get that cold in the winter (not even remotely by Wisconsin standards) and summer temperatures rarely get above 90F due to the 2200ft elevation.

True. Asheville doesn't get as much snow as people think, and its four seasons are gorgeous. However, the OP specifically asked for small towns of less than 50,000, so Asheville and Greenville are too large.

I wish the OP would return and give us more to go on.

I knew summers didn't cold. I've been there during the summer and it's beautiful. Asheville might be a place I'd want to retire in.
