I'm not even sure if a city like that exists. Jobs in my career field are typically only available in very large cities (over 1 million population) so that really limits the places where I can live. I'm originally from NYC and I found the summers to be really sticky and uncomfortable.

I second Denver and Salt Lake City! You could also look around the Colorado Springs area too

Cheyenne and Laramie WY if you want someplace smaller; also Boise ID for a mid-sized city.

Denver, Salt Lake City, Boise, Colorado Springs and Albuquerque. Maybe even Seattle and Portland if you don't mind a little less variation of seasons.

Indianapolis is a city you could consider.
Doesn't get nearly as hot and humid as the south like Atlanta. Average high in the summer is in the mid 80s with comfortable humidity. Also doesn't have the nasty nor'easters that you'll find on the east coast or the wild extremes like in Minnesota or the western mountains. Its actually difficult weather wise to drop below 0 and there are some winters where it doesn't happen. On average it happens 1-3 times per winter.

Indianapolis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Indianapolis still has humid summers....there's only a few places that don't, and they're in the desert usually on the west coast. Almost nowhere in the upper/upper-ish midwest/east coast is not humid in the summer.

no its not.
Humid really is a relative term.
Ive been all over the country and the problem with the desert southwest is you have a massive 110 degree dry heat which is still bad and then you have the wild winters. especially in Utah and Denver.
Indianapolis is not that humid and saying its as humid as the south really is foolish.
