Help a girl out. I want to move from a city that gets snow and ice in the winter to somewhere that rarely sees either. But after visiting a few warm BIG cities, I learned quickly I would never be able to handle the traffic!

What medium size cities should I look into? Cities that have the mall and chain restaurants but are say - maybe 700,000 in population or less? I thrive on sunshine but don't want to melt all the time either. There's got to be some pretty, warm cities left that aren't overcrowded. Yes?

I'd say Durham, NC. It's a beautiful tree-filled city with all the conveniences, a somewhat mild true four season climate ( little snow) and not a ton of traffic.

San Diego, California.

Pleasant climate year round- never too hot, never too cold, just right, low humidity, beautiful scenery. mid-size population. Traffic can be bad, but it's not terrible.
