That is, the place has neither especially cold winters nor oppressively muggy hot summers? I think western North Carolina and the Jersey Shore might come the closest, though they can still get very cold or very muggy sometimes.

I definitely agree about the Jersey Shore, coastal areas in general may be another answer. The immediate coast tends to get less snow than more inland, and is usually up to 10 degrees cooler than inland in the summer.

Not sure about NC so not commenting on that.

Atlanta. Summers are hot and humid but exaggerated. Fall and spring are lovely. Winters are crisp, but mild compared to up north.

Upstate NY /WNY/CNY whatever (so confusing) has mild summers with low humidity, albeit truly frigid winters.

First, you have to define the following subjective terms: cold, hot, muggy, excessive, oppressive.

Good luck with that.

I lived in the southern Appalachians. Summers can get very humid. Realize that parts are characterized as a rainforest. Some areas in the mountains get over 80 inches of rain a year.

Mild - try Harrisburg or central PA. The Northern Blue ridge mountains or the eastern front of the Northern Appalachians. The temps can get low but very little snow.

I have read the Southern Maine & NH coasts miss out on the major snowfalls. Not sure about this one, as I said, it is only what I have read.

I hear Asheville North Carolina doesn't get as hot in the summer as most of the Eastern US while also not having super snowy winters of the Northern US, but that's probably about it.

I guess I mean that the temperature doesn't often get below 20F and the dewpoint doesn't often get above 70F, at least not combined with heat.

Charleston, West Virginia can be described as "mild", whilst also having 4 seasons. It doesn't have the extremes.
