Denver. Been living here for over 3 years now. The average humidity on a summer day in July is 15-20%. Compare that to where I grew up as a kid in DC, where it was 80%.

I'm so spoiled now having been in Colorado. I went home to visit my parents back in DC last summer, and as I walked out the doors from the airport to the park and ride, I literally said "eww" out loud LOL. That good ol' DC summer. 85 degrees, 85% humidity. blah.

Santa Fe or Flagstaff may do the trick.

Yep, anywhere in California. What kind of small town are you looking for?

Western Oregon and Western Washington actually have high humidity most of the year, but the warm season (really only July through Mid-September) shows a big drop in daytime humidity so you don't feel it. Usually. There are exceptions, but even those "muggy" days pale in comparison to most east of the Mississippi. Dew points and humidity are extremely high in this area from November through March. Translated: It's wet.

The Southwest for sure...a small town with heat & lower humidity/dew points? Perhaps Las Cruces, NM. Though its the second largest city in New Mexico, it has a smaller town feel.

I'd wait a year to see if the state's going to have any water left. It's one thing to want low humidity, it's completely another to have water to drink and to flush one's toilet.

Spokane is a medium sized city but it still has a strong small town feel to it and it's close to skiing and the mountains.
