What are some towns/cities in the Southeastern states that would have the least humidity. I am wanting to relocate from Tulsa Oklahoma. This may be a stretch and I may not find relief of any kind, but am considering Alabama, N. Carolina, S.Carolina. A place that has lots of outdoor recreation, employment, and low cost of living would also be a plus. I was considering western states, but they seem to be too expensive.
I may be asking too much, so I'll just stick to the places with the least humidity levels for now, unless you wish to chime in on the other issues/concerns.
Thanks so much in advance for your input!!!

Maybe the Tri-Cities area in Tennessee. It'll still be humid, but the summertime high temperatures and dew points are several degrees lower than Tulsa's, so it should be a little better. (Assuming you're talking about heat and humidity, not cold and humidity.) And there's always Boone, NC.

Check out the I-81 corridor along the Blue Ridge Mountains/Shenandoah Valley in Virginia where most cities have a very low unemployment rate and a lower cost of living. Winchester VA/Martinsburg WV is at 5.7% unemployment, Harrisonburg at 5.8%, Roanoke at 5.9% and Blacksburg/Christiansburg/Radford at 6.3%. It will still be a bit humid in the height of summer, but nowhere near other areas of the Southeast.
