What exactly do you like to do?

What exactly annoys you about places?

What motivates, inspires, and excites you? Be specific.

Do you thrive living near an ultra-educated, competitive populous? Does that crowd annoy you? What do you do in your free time? What would you like to do in your free time? The South is very very buggy. Does that gross you out? Humidity is worse in much of the Midwest than it is in Florida. What is "terrible" humidity to you?

Giving general advice based on the information you provided is completely and utterly pointless.

Good luck in your search.

I've been to Florida and in humid areas but only in the spring where it was nice. I read that it is unbearable in the summer......But is there anywhere in the east that you won't die from humidity? I don't mind some humidity. I've also been to Houston in the summer and know that was miserable!
And a good place to raise teens and little kids with stuff to do! It is so boring in Colorado!

Any advice? Experience?
I think boring is the wrong word to use to describe Colorado. I find it too slow, housing costs (especially rent) is increasing faster than salaries, and being completely landlocked is beginning to suck, but it isn't boring. If I wasn't having such bad luck with cars I would be out hiking or exploring the city all the time.

Anyways...without specifics there is no way I can give an recommendations. This is too vague and while humidity does suck, I think there are more important issues.

If you can afford Hawaii or Southern California, I think that would be ideal in terms of beaches, weather, hiking, and overall amenities. The East Coast/Midwest is going to be too cold for you in winter, simple as that. If you don't like CO winters, the East Coast winters are about the same (but gloomier) and winters in the Midwest are just miserable.

Florida and the South has humidity--but at least there's beaches you can go to in order to cool off. However, FL's job market isn't very good--wages are low, job mostly revolve around the tourism industry, and the state is getting expensive because everyone's moving there. New Orleans would be a good fit. It does have a crime issue and summers are hot, but people exaggerate the summer weather. It really isn't that bad, and the payoff is that the rest of the year (besides some winter days being really cold) you get nice weather. And it's just a really fun city.

Perhaps also look more into Sacramento, Seattle, or Portland.

I've lived in Colorado for over 20 years, and frankly I'm not a camping, hiking person. So it is boring to ME. I'm pretty low key and am much happier in the sun/warm weather. I wouldn't mind staying here in co if it was not cold.
I love beaches and touristy type things.
I want a place to have about 10 plus acres where I can have animals. I thought the Tampa area might work, but then I see it's all plagged by sink holes and insurance won't cover your house.

Florida is rapidly becoming an extremely undesirable place to live, with nearly 20 million people sardined in that state, and counting. The metropolitan areas, at large, are extremely congested, full of traffic, tourists and cookie cutout development all over the place. Most of the jobs are low paying service jobs, though there are some corporate white collar professional jobs here and there. Florida is also aging at a rate of FOUR times that of the national rate. The median age in FL is rising by 0.4 years per year.

Florida is also going to be the #1 victim of global warming and will be underwater in just 35 years from now.

What about Phoenix? There are TONS of ex-Coloradans living here, and all seem to love it. Its pretty cheap, and summers are hot, but not humid.
