Hi everyone, I'm looking to relocate from rainy Washington State to somewhere where they have mild winter (some snow) mild summer (75-100F) and beautiful fall and spring. I'm really sick of rain and no sun.
I've been working for casinos my whole life so the casino has to be near by, so I can find a job

Thank you all

Why not look over to the eastern portion of the state? The weather pattern is nothing like Seattle/Western Wa. Spokane, and Tri-cities are good places to start.

Tricities don't have any snow, and it's always so windy out there, plus it's like a desert, no trees

I'd recommend checking out Dover, Delaware. The weather is more moderate/less severe than the Northeast US in terms of winter and not as screaming hot as points to the south.

Actually it does get snow... its like Denver in that the snow melts pretty much right away. Its more greener than you're giving credit.



Anyway, look also at West Virginia like Charleston, Morgantown. Also Lexington and Louisville, KY. Of course, there's Reno and Atlantic City.

Nevada is still struggling, so Reno and Vegas would be a gamble (pun intended).

Casinos are almost everywhere these days (if you include the Indian casino properties). Just find an area that is sunnier, check out if there is a major casino nearby, and you are there.

The Tri-Cities, WA does have trees, btw. Plus it is the fastest growing area in the Northwest. And just an hour south is the Wildhorse Casino in Pendleton, OR recently completing a huge expansion with a 10 story hotel, one of the tallest buildings in Eastern Oregon.

Check out Choctaw casino in Durant Ok and Chickasha casino on the Ok border north of DFW too. Neither will get snow each winter but have four seasons and good economies well at least low unemployment due to casinos and DFW influenced job growth at least in Durant. Good luck.

You could also try NM casinos which will be in areas that get snow but not so sure the economies are good nor job prospects. If in terested check those between Sante Fe and ABQ along the interstate in NM.

There's a brand new casino going up in Lake Charles, Louisiana called Mojito Pointe. You'll definitely get a lot more sun there, and it's very green and the food is good there. No snow though.

The great advantage to that area is that unlike NV, it is tapping the rich Houston, TX market so your job would be really secure. Just a thought.
