Im sure this kind of question has gone around before, but my husband and I are looking to relocate from the very cold state of NH to a more mild climate in the Carolinas. I would live to be within an hour of the coast, but I would definitely consider other areas. I love to be outisde and I hate the cold. I want to make sure that the area is accepting of "northerners" and good public schools are a must. Somewhere friendly, safe, and with some land. About .5 to 1 acre lots within 30 minutes of grocery stores and things to do. We have been talking about this for a few years now and I think this year we are going to make it happen. We love to camp at campgrounds and we do a lot of walking, playgrounds, and bike riding here in the summer and would like to do more of that year round. So I guess we are hoping to avoid the most hot and humid areas as well that would keep us inside with ac! (I know I'm asking for a lot!) Thank you in advance for any info or suggestions!!

You can't live within an hour of the coast and not be in an area where it won't be hot and humid in the summer. Areas of the Carolinas not on the coast where the humidity is lower are at higher elevations and therefore can be cold in the winters (though minus NH extremes and snowfall amounts). I would suggest checking out the higher elevation areas in both states, such as Asheville/Hendersonville in North Carolina or Greenville/Spartanburg in South Carolina.

Thank you. For some reason I always thought humidity was lower near the coast. And actually as I started looking into more detailed weather information I found that myrtle beach south carolina hardly went beyond 88 last summer - while columbia was well into the 90's. Maybe coincidence. Didnt find much on humidity though...
