My husband and I are wanting to move OUT of California in a few years. Does anyone know any decent cities that fit the following criteria:

- Doesn't snow, or at least VERY minimally
- Not in NV, AZ, NM, TX, FL or anywhere considered the South
- Not Hawaii

These are all my husband's conditions, and he's most adamant about the no-snow one (he's from NY). I'm not as picky, I just want out of California.

So far, all we can think of that meets these requirements are Portland OR and Seattle. Any other ideas?

Is your husband aware that it definitely has been known to snow in Seattle?

Oregon is the only state that meets your criteria and even then, there is still some snow.

What is so bad about the South? There are a bunch of cities in the South that have lots of transplants from other parts of the country and so to many people don't feel Southern culturally. Charlotte, Asheville, Atlanta, Raleigh/Durham, just to name a few.

It may not be a lot, but it does snow in all of those cities.

Eugene, Oregon only gets around 2.8 inches of snow a year. It might be the best you'd do unless you lived somewhere on the coast, like Astoria.

There's virtually nowhere except for Southern California and South Florida that it absolutely never snows in the country. Of course, there are many more areas where snow is so rare/light that it melts on its own and no shovel is needed. I'm guessing shoveling is your husband's issue.

Southern Texas (like South Padre Island) also never gets any snow.

Sounds like he doesn't really want to move.

Yes. There are many places that only get light snow. Stay in the grey areas.

I second that. He's eliminated everything except Coastal Oregon and Washington. Even "warm" areas of Colorado like Grand Junction and Pueblo still get roughly 2 feet of snow per year.
