What are some cities in the US where it hot all year where you can just wear a t-shirt and shorts or sweatshirt in the winter. And you don't need the heat on in the house in the winter.

Also what are the best cities for jobs with the lowest unemployment and cheapest price of the housing market.

I hear that city of Phoenix ,Dallas and Fort Forth has very low unemployment than most places in the US , very hot all year , the price homes are cheap many under $150,000 and many in $40,000 to $150,000 range.

I'm really thinking of Phoenix it seems really good.

Those cities are not hot all year. A quick look at weather stats on Wikipedia shows that the average low in Phoenix in January is 45 degrees. Not that cold, but not at all hot and hardly t-shirt and shorts weather.

Dallas/Fort Worth is even colder - 37 degrees.

Even one of the southernmost cities in Texas, McAllen, still has an average low of 49 degrees in January.

The only parts of the US that are consistently warm even in the winter are South Florida and Hawaii, and both of those places are pretty expensive compared to the rest of the country.

So I'm sorry but I don't think what you are looking for exists, unless you are ok with a few months in the 40s.

Try any of the Gulf states. There is good paying work there on the oil rigs. Weather is hot, food is good, houses are cheap. Scenery is pretty.

There doesn't seem to be much employment available outside of the oil rigs, so I assume you would have to be strong and fit if you want work.

Check out the Naples-Bonita Springs-Fort Myers area in SW Florida. It typically gets no lower than the mid 50s in winter and the unemployment rate is at the US average of 8%. There is a large inventory of decent homes (hundreds) under 150K. http://www.weather.com/weather/wxcli...ly/graph/34102

So it looks like lot of these sun belt cities are starting to get costly now.The myth going around you can move to the south and get house for under $150,000 is long gone now . May be the state of Texas you can get house for under $150,000 in Dallas or Fort Worth.


Has for the hottest cities after doing some more reading stateofnature is right South Florida and Hawaii is really the only place you can wear t-shirt and shorts or at least pants all year.

The second hottest cities are Phoenix and Los Angeles you may be able to wear sweatshirt or light spring jacket in winter .
